Publisher Comments:

In the small hours of the morning one fall day in 1866, a frantic widow visits detective Charles Lenox. Lady Annabelles problem is simple: her beloved son, George, has vanished from his room at Oxford. When Lenox visits his alma mater to investigate he discovers a series of bizarre clues, including a murdered cat and a card cryptically referring to “The September Society.” Then, just as Lenox realizes that the case may be deeper than it appears, a student dies, the victim of foul play.

What could the September Society have to do with it?  What specter, returned from the past, is haunting gentle Oxford? Lenox, with the support of his devoted friends in Londons upper crust, must race to discover the truth before it comes searching for him, and dangerously close to home.


Charles Lenox is back in a new mystery by the acclaimed author of "A Beautiful Blue Death."

This is a very satisfying sequel to A Beautiful Blue Death. Lenox's doctor friend McConnell assists him again but he also takes on an apprentice, Dallington, a younger son of a titled friend. They are both interesting characters and add depth to the story. Lenox himself is a very noble and likeable character, a sort of anti-Poirot. He is a detective for the sake of the clients, not his own ego, and is therefore willing to share his information with the police and the family members. He is also in love which is quite endearing.
