Publisher's Summary

Returning from a continental honeymoon with his new wife, Lady Jane, Lenox is asked by a colleague in Parliament to consult in the murder of a footman, bludgeoned to death with a brick. His investigation uncovers some unsettling facts about the family he served and a strange, second identity that the footman himself cultivated.
Going into the boxing clubs and public houses, the Mayfair mansions and servants' quarters of Victorian London, Lenox gradually realizes that an old friend may be implicated in the footman's death. Soon a suspect is arrested, but Lenox has his doubts. Desperately trying to balance the opening of Parliament and what he feels sure is a dark secret surrounding the murder, he soon discovers that the killer is someone seemingly beyond suspicion, and may be prepared to spill blood again-even a detective's.

What the Critics Say

"With a keen eye for period detail, Finch believably portrays his Victorian sleuth skillfully managing life's demands. . . . Readers of Anne Perry should be snatching up Finch's books and clamoring for more." (Library Journal)

Another good read

I like Charles Finch's Lennox series very much.
James Langton was great when narrating/doing different characters, but his prose narration is of a style I have heard before and find very annoying. It is a sing song type of prose narration that can become monotonous to listen to. Quite stilted. Otherwise, most enjoyable.
