A Beautiful Blue Death: The First Charles Lenox Mystery (Charles Lenox Mysteries #1) By Charles Finch Cover Image
ISBN: 9781250161642
Availability: In Stock at Our Warehouse - Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Minotaur Books - September 5th, 2017

This Victorian debut is equal parts Sherlock Holmes, Gosford Park, and P. G. Wodehouse—a book called "the best kind of historical mystery" by bestselling author David Liss

This reissue is part of the Minotaur Signature Editions program.

On any given day in London, all Charles Lenox, Victorian gentleman and armchair explorer, wants to do is relax in his private study with a cup of tea, a roaring fire and a good book. But when his lifelong friend Lady Jane asks for his help, Lenox cannot resist another chance to unravel a mystery, even if it means trudging through the snow to her townhouse next door.

Prudence Smith, one of Jane's former servants, is dead—an apparent suicide. But Lenox suspects something far more sinister: murder, by a rare and deadly poison. The grand house where the girl worked is full of suspects, and though Prue dabbled with the hearts of more than a few men, Lenox is baffled by the elusive motive for the girl's death.

When another body turns up during the London season's most fashionable ball, Lenox must untangle a web of loyalties and animosities. Was it jealousy that killed Prudence Smith? Or was it something else entirely, something that Lenox alone can uncover before the killer strikes again—disturbingly close to home?
