The Inheritance

by

The newest mystery in this critically-acclaimed, bestselling series that the New York Times calls “beguiling.”

When an old school friend sends a letter to Charles Lenox, the two are back on to the path of an investigation they’d started thirty years before. The friend’s mother has died under mysterious circumstances, and in order to uncover the truth, they’ll have to discover the identity of an anonymous benefactor who may have something to do with it.

Meanwhile, Lenox continues his work as Parliament’s house detective and his life with his charming wife, Lady Jane, and their daughter.
