Enjoyable read with beloved characters & ingenious plotting that fails to break new ground. Some repeated uncertainties in tone when Lenox speaks; I wasn't quite sure if he was joking or serious. I laughed out loud at what happens to a certain historical personage. I look forward to further surprising developments. The ending is rather like that of The Last Enchantments.

I love this mystery series set in Victorian England. Charles Lenox is an engaging character and a brilliant detective. There's enough going on in the latest installment to make it a page turner, but not so much that it's confusing. The ending is a bit of a surprise, but very satisfying. A wonderful journey!
