London, 1850: A young Charles Lenox struggles to make a name for himself as a detective--without a single case. Scotland Yard refuses to take him seriously and his friends deride him for attempting a profession at all. But when an anonymous writer sends a letter to the paper claiming to have committed the perfect crime--and promising to kill again--Lenox is convinced that this is his chance to prove himself. The writer's first victim is a young woman whose body is found in a naval trunk, caught up in the rushes of a small islet in the middle of the Thames. With few clues to go on, Lenox endeavors to solve the crime before another innocent life is lost. When the killer's sights are turned toward those whom Lenox holds most dear, the stakes are raised and Lenox is trapped in a desperate game of cat and mouse.… (mere)

Another good mystery with additional facts of life during that time period ( )

Like eating potato chips. I have trouble putting down the bag likewise the book. It does not seem to matter whether it is a Charles Lenox Prequel as this was, or Installment #14 which I finished last week. They are all brilliant, well thought out and unputdownable mysteries. ( )

A typical British murder mystery but this one had no mystery. It had boring characters and was difficult to finish ( )

Charles Lenox mysteries by Charles Finch, are books I savour. I take my time reading them and allow myself to be immersed in the story.

This is a book later in the series, but it takes you back to the time when Lenox is just starting out.

1850, London and Lenox has completed his education and set up home in a flat in St. James's Square. Lenox has chosen to become a private detective. This is something that really doesn't exist at this time.

Lenox reads the papers daily and clips out articles about various crimes, compiling a reference collection. His eye is caught by a letter to the editor, from an anonymous writer, laying claim to having committed the perfect crime with the promise to kill again. Lenox is determined to catch the killer and prove he is serious about his career choice.

Lenox is intent, persistent and observant to detail. Even though Scotland Yard doesn't take him seriously, he uses his connections to get access to restricted areas and information. Bit by bit he pieces things together.

This book also give background to some of the main characters found in previous books, providing a more rounded story.

I am looking forward to reading more in this series. ( )

For a little more than an hour on that May morning in 1850, the only sound in the flat in St. James Square was the rustling of newspapers, punctuated occasionally by the crisp shear of a pair of sharpened scissors through newsprint.
