I always enjoy visits with Charles Lenox. This one was no different. It was an engaging mystery, and I had the murder figured out pretty early on, even picking up on clues that Lenox and Dallington overlooked. I did like the discussion of Charles' disappointment with being an MP, because I find too often books about amateur detectives either ignore the detective's day jobs, or gloss over them. This was a refreshing look at the daily lives for me. I hope the next books keep up the tone.
