The Woman in the Water, Charles Finch

The very first case for brilliant consulting detective Charles Lennox.

London, May 1850

At just turned 23, young Charles has decided his field of expertise will be detection, the only problem is that Scotland Yard’s officers won’t give him the time of day. He is a joke in their circles. He and his valet Graham spend each morning collecting and collating newspaper articles and letters to the editor and one stands out. Its writer claims to have committed the ‘perfect murder’ and because the first one wasn’t remarked upon to his satisfaction, intends to commit another murder on the anniversary of the original which is less than a month away.
