It’s always hard to wait for the next Charles Lenox mystery to come out, and they keep getting better all the time. In this one, a man’s body is found one night in 1855 on the last train into Paddington Station, but he has no identification, luggage, or possessions and the labels are cut out of his clothes. Where does detective Lenox start? At the same time, Lenox is hoping that his relationship with Kitty Ashbrook will deepen. Finch’s characters are so engaging and show all the foibles of human nature, and his Victorian London setting is as delightful as ever—you can practically taste the tea and toast and feel the creeping mists. - reviewed by Nikki
