Returning from a continental honeymoon with his new wife, Lady Jane, Lenox is asked by a colleague in Parliament to consult in the murder of a footman, bludgeoned to death with a brick. His investigation uncovers some unsettling facts about the family he served and a strange, second identity that the footman himself cultivated.

Going into the boxing clubs and public houses, the Mayfair mansions and servants' quarters of Victorian London, Lenox gradually realizes that an old friend may be implicated in the footman's death. Soon a suspect is arrested, but Lenox has his doubts. Desperately trying to balance the opening of Parliament and what he feels sure is a dark secret surrounding the murder, he soon discovers that the killer is someone seemingly beyond suspicion, and may be prepared to spill blood again--even a detective's.

(The fourth book in the Charles Lenox Mysteries series)

Jun 06, 2014

Lady Jane and Lenox have finally tied the knot and upon their return from a continental honeymoon a friend requests his help. A footman has been murdered and there is more to the mystery then is at first apparent.

I didn't like this book as much as the last three. The relationship difficulties were annoying, the melodrama far too much and the mystery was over the top. I have hopes that the next book will be better.
