St. Louis County Library presents bestselling author Charles Finch who will sign and discuss his new book The Last Passenger.
Bestselling historical suspense author Charles Finch presents the third and final in a prequel trilogy to his lauded series starring Victorian era gentleman sleuth Charles Lenox. In “The Last Passenger,” a young and eager Charles Lenox faces his toughest case yet: a murder without a single clue. Slumped in a first-class car at Paddington Station is the body of a young, handsome gentleman. He has no luggage, empty pockets, and no sign of violence upon his person—yet Lenox knows instantly that it’s not a natural death. Pursuing the investigation against the best wishes of Scotland Yard, the detective encounters every obstacle London in 1855 has to offer, from obstinate royalty to class prejudice to the intense grief of his closest friend.
