A solid historical mystery that will change its hero's mind about life and death. --Kirkus Reviews

Entertaining... Finch effectively juggles the various plot threads. --Publishers Weekly

Praise for The Last Passenger:

"Smashing...That's the charm of Finch's style and [Lenox's] own manner of sleuthing -- a brilliant display of brainy deduction...classy writing and beguiling details." --The New York Times Book Review

"Atmospheric." --Seattle Times

No mystery writer except perhaps Anne Perry is as successful as Charles Finch at evoking the atmosphere of Victorian London. --The Washington Post

"Seriously satisfying." --AirMail

"Finch smoothly integrates the era's politics, fashion, culture and views, including how American issues have infiltrated British society. [He] also cleverly delves into Lenox's personality, which has fueled this beloved series." --Florida Sun-Sentinel

A well-written mystery that moves quickly...[provides] insight into European politics vis-a-vis the United States just prior to the American Civil War. --Mystery Scene Magazine

"Finch outdoes himself in the latest Charles Lenox mystery...[he] superbly weaves facts, interesting historical tidbits and emotions in a book so rich one hates to see it end." --Cleveland Plain-Dealer

Finch's plotting is excellent, his characters well developed, but it is his prose that truly shines. He evokes the writing style of 19th-century English authors--Wilkie Collins jumps to mind--lending a degree of authenticity to the narrative found in comparatively few historical novels. Finch also incorporates then-contemporary international politics, especially the burgeoning abolitionist movement in the U.S., in this exceptional and atmospheric mystery. --Bookpage

"Avid mystery readers will enjoy Lenox's thorough review of his sleuthing process...choose this if you revel in atmosphere." --Kirkus Reviews

"This tightly plotted rich in historical detail...[Lenox] coming into his own as a detective is a delight." --Booklist

Finch effectively integrates the politics of the time, including pre-Civil War tensions in America... a clever murder puzzle. Anne Perry and David Dickinson fans will be satisfied. --Publishers Weekly
