Product description

Review

"A delight book! . . . Charles Finch brings early Victorian England right into our homes, peppered with cucumber sandwiches and bodies. . . . It's a rare accomplishment to make a murder so charming and a detective so compelling." --Louise Penny

"A fine specimen of the genre.... Particularly good is [Finch's] delineation of Lenox's cozy-but-proper relationship with Lady Jane." --The Washington Post

A remarkable debut. --Richmond Times-Dispatch

"The best sort of historical mystery--clever, charming, full of period detail, and a delight to read." --David Liss, author of The Whiskey Rebels

"Vividly capturing the essence of Victorian England, Finch presents us with a unique sleuth who combines the deductive powers of Sherlock Holmes with the people skills of Thomas Pitt. A sparkling achievement." --Library Journal (starred review)
