Publisher's Summary

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.

A Really Disappointed Charles Finch Fan

Would you try another book from Charles Finch and/or James Langton?

I thoroughly enjoyed all of Finch's previous books in this series (HUGE fan). I anxiously awaited this recent release (waited for months). What a let down! The plot is soooo dull that I didn't want to finish it. In the past, I usually relished each chapter of his works. But in this last work, the plot and the characters (who I grew to appreciate in his previous books) all seem one dimensional. I can't help but wonder if the author rushed this book by submitting an outlined manuscript and then the publishers drew it out with painstaking, boring details that never gained momentum. The result: A looooong, boring tale that made me lose my fondness for Charles Lenox and Lady Grey. I also really missed the wonderful supporting characters that were included in previous books. What a shame and waste of time. Sadly, I'm tempted to get a refund.


Would you ever listen to anything by Charles Finch again?

Not sure.


What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The narrator was fine. No cmplants there.


What character would you cut from A Death in the Small Hours?

Not sure. They ALL needed more dimensions.

Sort of Pleasant

This is a pleasant, light read of no consequence. I am not sure what the point was. I like it as a quiet diversion, but do not expect to listen again (as I do with stories that are well told and read).
