Reviews

Detective-cum-spy Charles Lenox is off to Egypt in his fifth historical jaunt (A Stranger in Mayfair). Expect intrigue and seafaring tales in this Victorian adventure. [Library marketing.] (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.

James Langton's narration of the latest title in Finch's Victorian-era historical whodunit series captures the suspense and drama of a high-stakes murder investigation carried out at sea. Although veteran sleuth Charles Lenox is now a member of parliament and looking to leave his detecting days behind, he travels to Egypt following the murder of several British spies. Before he arrives, Lenox finds himself looking into a brutal crime onboard the ship transporting him through the Suez Canal. Thanks to Langton's ability to create unique voices, listeners will have no trouble distinguishing the many characters. And with a killer stalking the crew, Langton infuses his narration with tension, ably handling the book's final reveal-an essential requirement of an audio whodunit. A Minotaur hardcover. (Nov.)

Finch's descriptions of life at sea are so fascinating it's a shame Lenox must bring this case to an end." --Daniel Stashower, AARP"Agatha Christie meets Patrick O'Brian in Finch's accomplished fifth whodunit set in Victorian England ... the best in the series to date." --Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)"An agreeable spin on the classic locked-room mystery yarn; it's Murder on the Orient Express as reimagined by Patrick O'Brian." --Daniel Stashower, AARP"The murder mystery that Finch weaves keeps readers guessing...an intriguing read on several levels." --The Seattle Times
