Editorial Reviews

Review

“The novelty of bringing Lenox to America works well... Using actual historical figures as characters, Finch does justice to the nouveau dazzle of Newport, and writes with Wharton-worthy acuteness about the horse-trading of marriageable young women.” –Airmail

“Witty... Finch sketches the manners of this snooty resort town with a Jane Austen-like precision... graceful prose and keen observations.” –Minneapolis Star-Tribune

“Lenox’s latest adventure has humanity, heart, and humor; it offers a captivating glimpse of America’s richest citizens in the late 1800s; it delivers a gripping and cleverly plotted mystery; and, of course, Lenox remains a thoroughly charming lead character. A pleasure to read on every level.” –Booklist (starred review)

"A solid historical mystery that will change its hero’s mind about life and death." ―Kirkus Reviews

"Entertaining... Finch effectively juggles the various plot threads." --Publishers Weekly

Praise for The Last Passenger:


“Smashing...That’s the charm of Finch’s style and [Lenox’s] own manner of sleuthing ― a brilliant display of brainy deduction...classy writing and beguiling details.” ―The New York Times Book Review

“Atmospheric.” ―Seattle Times

"No mystery writer except perhaps Anne Perry is as successful as Charles Finch at evoking the atmosphere of Victorian London." ―The Washington Post

“Seriously satisfying.” ―AirMail

“Finch smoothly integrates the era’s politics, fashion, culture and views, including how American issues have infiltrated British society. [He] also cleverly delves into Lenox’s personality, which has fueled this beloved series.” ―Florida Sun-Sentinel

"A well-written mystery that moves quickly...[provides] insight into European politics vis-a-vis the United States just prior to the American Civil War." ―Mystery Scene Magazine

“Finch outdoes himself in the latest Charles Lenox mystery…[he] superbly weaves facts, interesting historical tidbits and emotions in a book so rich one hates to see it end.” ―Cleveland Plain-Dealer

"Finch’s plotting is excellent, his characters well developed, but it is his prose that truly shines. He evokes the writing style of 19th-century English authors―Wilkie Collins jumps to mind―lending a degree of authenticity to the narrative found in comparatively few historical novels. Finch also incorporates then-contemporary international politics, especially the burgeoning abolitionist movement in the U.S., in this exceptional and atmospheric mystery." ―Bookpage

“Avid mystery readers will enjoy Lenox’s thorough review of his sleuthing process…choose this if you revel in atmosphere.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“This tightly plotted mystery…is rich in historical detail…[Lenox] coming into his own as a detective is a delight.” ―Booklist

"Finch effectively integrates the politics of the time, including pre–Civil War tensions in America... a clever murder puzzle. Anne Perry and David Dickinson fans will be satisfied."Publishers Weekly
