Charles Lenox is at the pinnacle of his political career and is a delighted new father. His days of regularly investigating the crimes of Victorian London now some years behind him, he plans a trip to his uncle's estate in the expectation of a few calm weeks. When he arrives in the quiet village of Plumley, however, what greets him is a series of strange vandalisms upon the local shops. Only when a far more serious crime is committed does he begin to understand the great stakes of those events, and the complex and sinister mind that is wreaking fear and suspicion in Plumley. Now, with his protege at his side, the race is on for Lenox to find the culprit before he strikes again

Enjoyable. Part a darn good murder mystery and part, the daily life of a progressive English parliamentarian in the 1870s. Charles Lenox enjoys his life as an MP but he begins to yearn for his former exciting life as a private detective and likes to dabble in recent cases at meetings with his former junior. Lenox receives the honour of giving the government's Opening Address to follow the Queen's Speech from the Throne (Victoria had been on the Throne for over 3 decades). Off to his uncle's estate to prepare but then ominous events start to occur, vandalism and murder. Both parts of the story are enjoyable, not the least is the way an MP with some influence operates more than a century ago within parliament and his political party.
