The second in the Lenox series, I found myself enjoying the mystery of this one better than the first (A Beautiful Blue Death). This story involved a number of strange clues, the disappearance of two young men, and a couple of "mistaken" identities; the various threads - deaths twenty years apart - come together in the end in a very satisfying conclusion.
My only quibble is the semi-subplot involving Lenox and his decision to ask his best friend and neighbor, Lady Jane, to marry him. While I have no problem with the decision, it seemed that Lenox was a bit too obsessed with it, and it felt a touch out of character for him. Beyond that minor transgression, the book was solid.
