Product description


Praise for The Vanishing Man:

Lenox's exploits, laid out in 10 subsequent novels, now share shelf space with other aristocratic crime solvers -- Dorothy L. Sayers's Lord Peter Wimsey, Elizabeth George's Inspector Thomas Lynley, and Maisie Dobbs, Jacqueline Winspear's private detective...Finch's novels offer more than just cozy yet suspenseful story lines. The Vanishing Man also captures the culture of the time in which it's set...jump into the carriage with Lenox and hold on tight." --The Washington Post

Fans of the series, which set the earlier Lenox novels in the 1860s, will know what's coming in the detective's personal and professional life, but that in no way decreases the pleasure of this account of his earlier life. Finch's nimble prose, edged with humor, makes this twelfth in the Charles Lenox series a pure delight. --Booklist (starred review)

Rich in period minutiae, [The Vanishing Man] unveils the frightening power of the uppermost classes. --Kirkus Reviews

Praise for The Woman in the Water:

"Prequels are fun...Lenox is a mere whippersnapper in The Woman in the Water...a cunning mystery."--Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review

"Lenox has officially reached the big leagues--the conclusion waiting for him is nothing short of chilling. A case with enough momentum to recharge this series and grab new readers with its pull." --Kirkus Reviews

"Bravo Mr. Finch and keep them coming! More Lenox, please." --Louise Penny, author of Still Life

"With its splendidly drawn characters and brisk, supple prose, this can be either an inviting introduction to those new to Finch's accomplished series or a winning addition to the canon for established fans." --Booklist (starred)

"Finch does a wonderful job of re-creating the atmosphere of mid-19th-century England; his characters are crisply drawn and believable...An excellent addition to an already terrific series." --Library Journal (starred)

"Finch supplies an extremely clever solution to the murder mystery." --Publishers Weekly

"A thick, leisurely, British detective novel, studded with memorable characters." --Hallie Ephron, The Boston Globe on The Laws of Murder

"Finch is a clever plotter and assiduous researcher." --Seattle Times
