What better way to banish the political woes than to drop yourself into a Victorian mystery novel? Finch has written a number of great stories about Charles Lenox, an amateur detective in the 1850s who drives Scotland Yard crazy by solving complicated problems. The first in the series was published in 2007 and they are delightful. This particular new mystery is the second prequel and takes us back to Lenox's first cases and sets you up for more. If you haven't tried them, start with this. Lenox has a neighbor, Lady Jane, who.....well, I won't spoil it. Lenox takes on a case of a missing painting, a vanished duke, and a shocking murder. He is helped by Graham, his valet, servant, devious assistant, and friend. Finch has a wonderful eye for period detail, which makes it all great fun to read. As Louise Penny says, "Bravo Mr. Finch, and keep them coming."
