Inhaltsangabe: It's London in 1876, and the whole city is abuzz with the enigmatic disappearance of a famous foreign pianist. Lenox has an eye on the matter - as a partner in a now-thriving detective agency, he's a natural choice to investigate. Just when he's tempted to turn his focus to it entirely, however, his grieving brother asks him to come down to Sussex, and Lenox leaves the metropolis behind for the quieter country life of his boyhood. Or so he thinks. In fact, something strange is afoot in Markethouse: small thefts, books, blankets, animals, and more alarmingly a break-in at the house of a local insurance agent. As he and his brother to investigate this small accumulation of mysteries, Lenox realizes that something very strange and serious indeed may be happening, more than just local mischief. Soon, he's racing to solve two cases at once, one in London and one in the country, before either turns deadly. Blending Charles Finch's trademark wit, elegance, and depth of research, this new mystery, equal parts Jane Austen and Charles Dickens, may be the finest in the series.

Rezension:

The upper-class amateur sleuth, an endangered species even in historical mysteries, is very much alive in Charles Finch's charming Victorian whodunits. "The New York Times Book Review"

Superb . . . Boasting one of Finch's tightest and trickiest plots, this installment further establishes Lenox as a worthy heir to the aristocratic mantle of Lord Peter Wimsey. "Publishers Weekly (starred) on A Death in the Small Hours"

The sixth in Finch's steadily improving series develops the congenial continuing characters further while providing quite a decent mystery. "Kirkus Reviews on A Death in the Small Hours"

Charles Lenox [is] the gentleman sleuth in this beguiling series . Finch's descriptions of life at sea are so fascinating it's a shame Lenox must bring this case to an end. "Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review"

The murder mystery that Finch weaves keeps readers guessing as Lenox must figure out how--and why--the killings are accomplished. . . . an intriguing read on several levels. "Mary Foster, The Associated Press"

Much of the fun comes from watching Finch channel Patrick O'Brian (Master and Commander) as his landlubber hero finds his sea legs. You'll feel the spray in your face and worry, like the lovely Lady Jane back in England, that Lenox makes it safely home for book six--and the arrival of a new member of the family. "McClurg, USA Today""

"A sterling addition to this well-polished series.... Odd, mysterious thefts [provide] a chance for Finch to dazzle us with his amusing studies of country folk and his offbeat approach to historic particulars." "The New York Times Book Review"

"Finch is a clever plotter and assiduous researcher. Like Anthony Trollope, he is an insider s outsider. If you are a mystery addict seeking an escape hatch from the 21st century, check out this series by an elegant writer at the top of his form." "Seattle Times"
