Charles Lennox mysteries

I just discovered a series by Charles Finch. The first book is called A Beautiful Blue Death. It's set in 1865 England and focuses on Charles Lennox a "gentleman sleuth". Charles is an amateur detective who just happens to get involved murder investigations. In this book his dear friend Lady Grey, who lives next door, finds out that her maid, who left to work at another home was found dead. Scotland Yard is calling it a suicide but Lady Grey knows that's not true. Lady Grey asks Charles to investigate. Charles has to deal with very important people, Parliament and Scotland Yard to find the answers to this murder. It is a very good historical mystery and you will want to read the next book as soon as you can. The next book in the series is The September Society.

Find it in the catalog!
