A mysterious bequest of money leads to a murder in the tenth
entry in Charles Finch's critically acclaimed and
bestselling Charles Lenox series, whose last installment The
New York Times called â€śa sterling addition to this
Charles Lenox has received a cryptic plea for help from an
old Harrow schoolmate, Gerald Leigh, but when he looks into
the matter he finds that his friend has suddenly
disappeared. As boys they had shared a secret: a bequest
from a mysterious benefactor had smoothed Leighâ€™s way into
the world after the death of his father. Lenox, already with
a passionate interest in detective work, made discovering
the benefactor's identity his first case â€“ but was never
able to solve it.
Now, years later, Leigh has been the recipient of a second,
even more generous bequest. Is it from the same anonymous
sponsor? Or is the money poisoned by ulterior motives?
Leighâ€™s disappearance suggests the latter, and as Lenox
tries, desperately, to save his friendâ€™s life, heâ€™s forced
into confrontations with both the most dangerous of east end
gangs and the far more genteel denizens of the illustrious
Royal Society. When someone close to the bequest dies, Lenox
must finally delve deep into the past to uncover at last the
identity of the person who is either his friendâ€™s savior â€“
or his lethal enemy.
