Charles Lennox has become a good and familiar friend as Finch has let his life and career develop over the series. He has become a politician, a detective, a husband, and a father, not to mention a brother and friend. All these ever-developing parts of his life are wound through the plots of the series, and readers need to like the biography as much as the crime and its solution
There is a gentle quality about Lennox and his Victorian-era aristocratic world that is soothing as well as entertaining. This detective is a long way from hard- boiled, but the crime will be solved in the end, and Charles Lennox will be happy with Lady Jane and little Sophia. Highly recommended for fans of the classic British mystery, whether written in the 19th century or the 21st.

What made the experience of listening to The Inheritance the most enjoyable?
The reader is great, he makes me forget that he is not the actual voice of Charles Lennox. Apart from the story line I greatly appreciate Charles' (or, more to the point, the author's) kind and thoughtful outlook, which is easily transferrable from Lennox times to ours.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
Not so much on the edge of my seat, but I was not looking for that, but for a thoughtfully told mystery and commentary on life. Even though there were tense moments!
Which character – as performed by James Langton – was your favorite?
Charles, of course, but James Langton did a great job overall.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, absolutely, but I was also sad when it ended after about 8 1/2 hours, as I loved spending time in that world and now have to wait a long time again.
