An Old Betrayal by Charles Finch is the seventh book in the Charles Lenox Victorian mystery series (available November 12, 2013).
Charles Finch continues his popular Charles Lenox mysteries in An Old Betrayal. In this latest offering, Lenox is very busy with his Parliamentary duties and happily married to Lady Jane. Although he has surrendered most of his detecting, he occasionally comes out of his semi-retirement to investigate. This time, his protégé Dallington, who is too ill to work on his latest case, asks for Lenox’s help. Dallington is too ill to meet the writer of a terrified letter begging for help, so Lenox goes in his stead. The intimidation and threats of their client soon develop into something much more complicated and serious, and by the finish, three people have been murdered and the future of the Empire is at risk.
