New Release: A Death in the Small Hours

A Death in the Small Hours is the sixth book in the Charles Lenox Mysteries series by Charles Finch. I can honestly say that this series gets better with each book. Lenox himself is a strong character who is steadily growing and maturing and I always look forward to spending time with him. The books are very well researched and bring to life many aspects of Victorian class, politics and home life. And while reading this book, I actually started to understand cricket for the first time!

Here are my previous posts about the series:

Book One, A Beautiful Blue Death
Book Two, The September Society
Book Three, The Fleet Street Murders
Book Four and Series Highlight, A Stranger in Mayfair
Book Five, A Burial at Sea

If you're looking for a great Victorian mystery series that takes the detective all around England and beyond, on journeys both physical and mental, you can't go wrong with this one.

Straightening my fangirl badge,


  1. It's a gorgeous cover! And I love the idea of a Victorian mystery. But series...I'm just not any good at them....

    1. This series has THE BEST covers. And I read far too many series for my own good. ;)

  2. I've had this series on my TBR list for about 2 years now. Must. Make. Time!

    1. Definitely! It's a great one. I can't wait for the next book. :)
