An Old Betrayal by Charles Finch is the 7th book of the Charles Lenox historical mystery series set in 1875 London. As a favor when Dallington is ill, and because he misses private detection, Lenox agrees to meet a client. Although he's always swamped with work as a Member of Parliament, Lenox finds himself drawn into the case, suspecting an ultimate threat to Queen Victoria. Lenox is torn between his love of detection, love for his infant daughter and beloved wife Jane, and his sense of duty and responsibility to his country. He staunchly believes in the integrity of his secretary Graham and the character of his good friend Dr. McConnell, refusing to believe rumors he's told. Lenox solves the case with his usual panache, then makes a momentous decision. Always a pleasure to read this series, with its rich historical detail and well-developed likable characters.
