Review: A Beautiful Blue Death

A Beautiful Blue Death
Charles Finch

Charles Lenox is an amateur detective in London with a passion for solving crimes. In his current case he has to find out why a maid has been killed. His task may not be as straight forward as he initially thought. But, he has a set of friends and associates who are always willing to lend a helping hand.

Set in the 1860's this story takes place in large mansions and gentleman's clubs. It is full of well described surroundings that give the reader a real sense of place. It incorporates loads of details and its atmosphere fully draws the reader into the story. Anyone who loves British mysteries will enjoy this novel. It will make you want to curl up next to a fire with a cup of tea and a hobnob, and help Lenox solve the case. When you finish, like me you'll be waiting for, and wanting to read more of detective Lenox.

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for allowing me to review this book in exchange for an honest review.
