1878 Due to the results of a recent case Lenox is on a fact finding mission in the States. When he is invited to investigate a death in Newport, R.I. The death of socialite, 19 year old Lily Allingham.
A story showing the ostentatious flouting of the wealth of the inhabitants, and a good well-written historical mystery.
An enjoyable story with in the main, likeable characters. A good addition to the series.
An ARC was provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. ( )

There's a time warp in this story.

This is a mystery not science fiction but there is a time warp or alternate Earth. February 1878 Charles Lenox is walking through icy St. James Park, London. 14 March 1878 he writes a letter from New York to his wife in London. The next day, presumably 15 March, he boards a train toward Boston but ends up going to Newport, Rhode Island where somehow it is summer. Balmy breezes along the ocean walks. Flower boxes in full bloom. Wispy dresses billowing in the aforementioned balmy breezes.

Charles Lennox has appeared in 13 previous books. This is the first I have come across and, except for the extremely rapid climate change, it's not bad. A bit slow. A bit too happy to describe furniture. A bit too quick to describe people as having round faces. But the story is good. A young woman, a bit of a social climber but forgiven because she is stunningly beautiful, is murdered on the eve of her engagement to… well we aren’t sure. Several young gentlemen are claiming the honor. Several gentle families are glad their sons are off the hook. She wasn't really our type, you know. There is a lot of gossip.

I prefer my mysteries to be a bit peppier. This one will not keep you distracted during a long airplane trip but it would work for a sojourn on a beach later this summer.

I received a review copy of "An Extravagant Death" by Charles Finch from Minotaur through Gumshoe Review where this review originally appeared online in the April 2021 issue. ( )

Charles has uncovered a major theft ring run by 3 top Scotland Yard CDI's... Rather than have Charles testify in person & disrupt his position as P.M., Benjamin Disraeli, sends Charles to America courtesy of the Queen.

Upon arriving Charles is greeted with much pomp and is welcomed into "society", especially since his wife, Lady Jane, is well known as an English society VIP.

Traveling to Boston, Lennox's train is stopped and his presence is demanded at Newport in order to solve the murder of one of society's most eligible debutants. The suspects, both of high ranking Knickerbocker heritage.

As much as I enjoy this series and characters, I have to say I was disappointed in Lenox; as he allowed himself to be wounded by being careless, and that is out of character.

I knew immediately who the murderer was, but the murder weapon made absolutely no sense to me.... - 1 * ( )

Another fun installment of the Lenox series. Interested to see how things shake out in the next book. Looking forward to any future storylines with the new head of Scotland Yard! ( )
