London, 1850. A young Charles Lenox struggles to make a name for himself as a detective—without a single case. Scotland Yard refuses to take him seriously, and his friends deride him for attempting a profession at all. But when an anonymous writer sends a letter to the paper claiming to have committed the perfect crime—and promising to kill again―Lenox is convinced that this is his chance to prove himself.

The writer’s first victim is a young woman whose body is found in a naval trunk, caught up in the rushes of a small islet in the middle of the Thames River. With few clues to go on, Lenox endeavors to solve the crime before another innocent life is lost. When the killer’s sights are turned toward those whom Lenox holds most dear, the stakes are raised and Lenox is trapped in a desperate game of cat and mouse.

In the tradition of Sherlock Holmes, this newest mystery in the Charles Lenox series pits the young detective against a maniacal murderer who would give Professor Moriarty a run for his money.

Quotes & Awards

  • “With its splendidly drawn characters and brisk, supple prose, this can be either an inviting introduction to readers new to Finch’s accomplished series or a winning addition to the canon for established fans.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “In this prequel to Finch’s long-standing historical series…Finch does a wonderful job of re-creating the atmosphere of mid-nineteenth-century England; his characters are crisply drawn and believable. It’s wonderful to see the neophyte Lenox develop the skills for which he becomes renowned in later books. An excellent addition to an already terrific series.”

    Library Journal (starred review)

  • “The prequel to the career of astute Victorian private detective Charles Lenox…Lenox’s Sherlock-ian methods of deduction keep the narrative charged, and his soberness surrounding murder is a welcome touch…Lenox has officially reached the big leagues—the conclusion waiting for him is nothing short of chilling.”
