"A detailed and engrossing murder plot . . . a skillfully drawn social portrait of the late 1800s . . . Finch conjures the palpable excitement of the day over such groundbreaking developments as the telegraph and electricity, as England--and the rest of the world--stand on the brink of great change." --BookPage.com

One of The Strand Magazine's Best Mysteries of 2016 "A refined historical mystery that glows with intelligence.. . . So absorbing is Finch's work that his fans might imagine that they are reading it by gaslight in a fashionable London square as horse-drawn carriages pass by." --Richmond Times-Dispatch "A series as polished as British sterling . . . Charles Finch never ceases to amaze readers with wit and mighty good storytelling." --Bookreporter.com "The special pleasure of this series, beyond the mysteries Finch concocts, is how nicely he sets his stories against the background of Victorian England. It's one of the more enjoyable history lessons you'll come across. . . . As crime series go, the Lenox novels are exceptionally civilized." --Washington Post "The Inheritance is a well-thought-out mystery with ever-increasing stakes and bang-on details that bring the time to vivid life. An enjoyable read." --HistoricalNovel Society

"Finch impressively raises the stakes of this tale between tea settings, and his character development is top-notch." --Booklist "Entertaining and evocative. . . . A sense of time and place heightened by Finch's elegant prose and characters this Dorothy Sayers fan adores." --Journal Sentinel "As always, the characters and the Victorian setting are impeccable." --Library Journal "The upper-class amateur sleuth, an endangered species even in historical mysteries, is very much alive in Charles Finch's charming Victorian whodunits." --The New York Times Book Review

Finch is a clever plotter and assiduous researcher. Like Anthony Trollope, he is an insider's outsider. If you are a mystery addict seeking an escape hatch from the 21st century, check out this series by an elegant writer at the top of his form. --Seattle Times

A thick, leisurely, British detective novel, studded with memorable characters like raisins in a fruitcake. --Hallie Ephron, The Boston Globe "A delight! . . . It's a rare accomplishment to make a murder so charming and a detective so compelling. Bravo Mr Finch . . . more Lenox, please." --Louise Penny, author of A Great Reckoning
