Description

Charles Lenox is at the pinnacle of his political career and is a delighted new father. His days of regularly investigating the crimes of Victorian London now some years behind him, he plans a trip to his uncle's estate in the expectation of a few calm weeks. When he arrives in the quiet village of Plumley, however, what greets him is a series of strange vandalisms upon the local shops. Only when a far more serious crime is committed does he begin to understand the great stakes of those events, and the complex and sinister mind that is wreaking fear and suspicion in Plumley. Now, with his protege at his side, the race is on for Lenox to find the culprit before he strikes again.

      • content: When Charles Lenox, former criminal investigator, now a member of Parliament, is asked to write a speech for its opening session, he decides to escape London for his uncle's idyllic estate in rural Plumbley. James Langton's convincing narration brings the Victorian period and the charming English countryside into sharp focus. Langton is spot-on as he develops Lenox's character--from his tender feelings for his wife, Jane, and his delight in his newborn daughter, Sophie, to his dealings with his protégé, John Dallington, and several seemingly senseless acts of vandalism in Plumbley. When the vandalism escalates to murder and Lenox's uncle is kidnapped, Langton reveals Lenox to be the first-rate detective he is. Charles Finch's sixth Lenox mystery is tightly plotted, filled with credible characters, and enhanced by Langton's confident performance. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine

        Starred review from September 10, 2012
        Set in 1874, Finch’s superb sixth mystery (after 2011’s A Burial at Sea) finds former private investigator Charles Lenox now an influential member of Parliament. Lenox accepts the honor of giving the opening speech for the new parliamentary session, which could be the prologue to further government advancement. To prepare, he accepts his uncle’s invitation to visit the uncle’s estate in the village of Plumbley, which has been afflicted by bizarre acts of vandalism: someone drew a picture of a man hanging from a noose on the doors of two local merchants, and the Roman numeral for 22 was painted on the church door. The stabbing murder of a 19-year-old young man raises the ante. Lenox welcomes the chance to resume detecting, “his truest vocation.” Boasting one of Finch’s tightest and trickiest plots, this installment further establishes Lenox as a worthy heir to the aristocratic mantle of Lord Peter Wimsey. Agents: Kari Stuart and Jennifer Joel, ICM.
