Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Superb…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.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“This Victorian-era series combines the best of a serious, complicated mystery: great historical details, a sympathetic main character, and exact, beautiful writing. Quiet humor flows throughout, and the contrast between village and London life is interesting. There is even an unexpected romance. Wonderful in every way, this is not to be missed.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
