It was Christmas and only a few short days from 1867. Lenox was sitting in the long, book-filled room he used as library and study. Just down the front hall of the house, it had comfortable sofas and armchairs and a long desk, as well as a broad, high row of windows that looked out over Hampden Lane. The rain of the evening before had gone but left in its place a low, rolling fog that thickened over the streets of London.

Supplementing their work were two people I must thank: my mother, who can navigate the trickiest plot points and seems to understand my characters better than I do, and Emily Popp, who time and again tied together loose strings to tighten the structure and prose of this book. I’m so grateful to both of them.

The third book in the Charles Lenox series finds the gentleman detective trying to balance a heated race for Parliament with the investigation of the mysterious simultaneous deaths of two veteran reporters.

It’s Christmas, 1866, and amateur sleuth Charles Lenox, recently engaged to his best friend, Lady Jane Grey, is happily celebrating the holiday in his Mayfair townhouse. Across London, however, two journalists have just met with violent deaths--one shot, one throttled. Lenox soon involves himself in the strange case, which proves only more complicated as he digs deeper. However, he must leave it behind to go north to Stirrington, where he is fulfilling a lifelong dream: running for a Parliamentary seat. Once there, he gets a further shock when Lady Jane sends him a letter whose contents might threaten their nuptials.

In London, the police apprehend two unlikely and unrelated murder suspects. From the start, Lenox has his doubts; the crimes, he is sure, are tied, but how? Racing back and forth between London and Stirrington, Lenox must negotiate the complexities of crime and politics, not to mention his imperiled engagement. As the case mounts, Lenox learns that the person behind the murders might be closer to him--and his beloved--than he knows.

You know the novels in this series won't grip you in suspense or chilling detail, but what is so gripping is that they are comforting, the lead players have strength and nobleness of character and exhibit a restraint that is so interesting and exerts a powerful effect on the reader. This period in history also adds drama. Each time I read another Charles Lenox tale, I am pulled into the heart of it and find myself wanting more. Rough and tumble thrill seekers who dote on hard-boiled crime would not be persuaded to crack such a book, but even they might be surprised. It has an effect you can't explain .

The first two volumes in the Charles Lenox series were enjoyable for me as a fan of mysteries with the added interest in the historical perspective of the book. But I had difficulty in connecting with the story lines in this volume to keep my interest. They seemed too slow and too simplistic. Four primary storylines thread through the novel. The murders and the election were the primary stories with two relationship dramas as supporting stories.
I like the characters but the stories did not engage me enough. I struggled for weeks to finish the book, always finding something else to do in a day before reading a chapter. I don't think I will be anxious to pick up the next novel in this series. I have other authors I will gravitate to before opening another Lenox book.

Protagonist Charles Lennox is torn between campaigning for Parliament and investigating two murders in The Fleet Street Murders, the third book in the series. the crimes appear linked, yet were clearly committed by two different killers at virtually the same time. Dallington, Charles’ assistant, is convinced that a friend accused of the crimes is innocent; Charles, more worldly-wise, isn’t so sure. But before he can do more than dip his toes and the case he’s off to Stirrington to campaign.

Finch’s research is always meticulous, and this book gives a clear-eyed look at the 19th-century British political process, where candidates could run in and represent a district to which they had no ties whatsoever, votes could be bought for a beer or a few shillings, and rural workers rarely had the time or necessary transportation to vote. It was a world where women’s only power was their influence over their husbands’ votes, and where the process – and the candidates – were often corrupt. Yet good men like Charles Lenox did run, motivated by the desire to serve their country and perhaps their constituents. And the campaign rhetoric sounds surprisingly familiar to anyone who follows US or British politics today.

The campaign takes up perhaps a third of the book, the mystery much of what is left, but there is still room for character development as well as developments in the relationships of Charles and his fiancée Jane and their friends, Thomas and Toto McConnell. the mystery itself is satisfyingly complex and leads in unexpected directions offering several twists I didn’t see coming. With its stronger emphasis on character development, I think this installment is even stronger than books 1 and 2 – and that’s saying something, because both of them were excellent.

I’m thoroughly hooked on this series. I can’t wait to read the next three as well as number nine, Home by Nightfall, which is coming out this November. At that point, I’ll finally be caught up!

Not everyone will like spending so much time on the campaigning, but I enjoyed it all, feeling I always learn so much British history from a finch novel. the mystery is absorbing and the characters so well drawn, and with each book I feel I know them all so well. Lady Jane is the only one not fully realized. We never get inside her head or spend enough time with her life, to get the sense of her. And we are told Lenox and graham are close, but here, at least, we don't get that because their conversations are always master to servant in tone. Graham needs to relax a bit. Still, these are beautifully written mysteries and so enjoyable... I'd highly recommend reading them, starting first to last.
