This chilling new mystery in the USA Today
bestselling series by Charles Finch takes readers back
to Charles Lenox’s very first case and the ruthless serial
killer who would set him on the course to become one of
London’s most brilliant detectives.
London, 1850: A young Charles Lenox struggles to make a name
for himself as a detective…without a single case. Scotland
Yard refuses to take him seriously and his friends deride
him for attempting a profession at all. But when an
anonymous writer sends a letter to the paper claiming to
have committed the perfect crime—and promising to kill
again—Lenox is convinced that this is his chance to prove
The writer’s first victim is a young woman whose body is
found in a naval trunk, caught up in the rushes of a small
islets in the middle of the Thames. With few clues to go on,
Lenox endeavors to solve the crime before another innocent
life is lost. When the killer’s sights are turned toward
those whom Lenox holds most dear, the stakes are raised and
Lenox is trapped in a desperate game of cat and mouse.
In the tradition of Sherlock Holmes, this newest mystery in
the Charles Lenox series pits the young detective against a
maniacal murderer who would give Professor Moriarty a run
for his money.
