A Beautiful Blue Death

[Longhorn Review] A Beautiful Blue Death

Material Type: All, books — Tags: detective fiction, fiction, mystery, Victorian — Posted on November 17, 2008, 11:08 am

By: Finch, Charles

Set in London in 1865, it’s true to the language and milieu (as far as I can
tell) and has an amalgam of elements of the classic British detective story and 19th
century novel: an aristocratic amateur detective and his valet, gentlemen’s clubs,
old boys, country houses and town houses, balls and bridge and afternoon tea. The
London winter is palpable and the understated romance between sleuth and lady
sweet.
