Book Review of A Beautiful Blue Death (Charles Lenox, Bk 1)

A Beautiful Blue Death (Charles Lenox, Bk 1)

I have to say I really wasn't sure, even 1/3 of the way through, that I would like this series, of which this is the first. By the end of the book I put the rest of the series on my wish list and can't wait to get them! One of the reviews says that Charles Lenox is a "unique sleuth who combines the deductive powers of Sherlock Holmes with the people skills of Thomas Pitt." Library Journal. I agree wholeheartedly, very much of that genre. Could have been written by Ngaio Marsh or Dorothy Sayers. Lenox even has a "Bunter" as Lord Peter does, only this one is named Graham.
