Charles Lenox undertakes a mission to Egypt and runs into murder and intrigue aboard ship and on shore. Set in England in the 1860s, this series is a good mix of history and mystery. Lovers of both should enjoy this 5th book.

As a mystery buff who has read all of Charles Finch's books, I am so gratified by his sensitive character development, interesting plots, thorough research, and enthralling stories. At his young age, he will undoubtedly grow into one of the all-time great authors.

have to respond to the 1 star...why give 1 star to just be snarky? Love this author-if you like a true mystery, with Victorian atmosphere (backed by an author who knows the Victorian period) this is the author for you. Haven't read the book yet, of course, but have neer been disappointed by him. I'll buy the hardbacked copy of this book the day it comes out.

I have enjoyed all of Charles Finch's books about Charles Lenox. While this one is quite a departure from the previous books I found it to be the most entertaining one yet. Most of it takes place aboard a ship, and Finch obviously did his research to make certain he got the details right. He gives an absorbing feel of life aboard a sailing vessel, and made me feel part of the whole experience. That's what I look for in a good book, and Charles Finch delivered. A thoroughly enjoyable read.

My wife and I read every Charles Finch book as soon as it come out. We love this series and this is one of the best. Great sailing ship/Royal Navy background for this murder mystery. If you love mystery stories based in the 1900's, you will love this. Lent it to a friend and he read it almost overnight (he's a Marine and loves the era of the old sailing ships).

A Burial at Sea, book 5 in the series, is my favorite so far. Here, Charles find himself at sea aboard the Lucy on a clandestine mission for the British government to make a connection with a French agent in Egypt. With the majority of the action and murder(s) taking place while at sea, I thought that the story would become claustrophobic yet the author does a brilliant job of creating a downright sinister murder scenario with Lenox's life being put in great jeopardy once he closed in on the killer. This time there are none of the beloved support characters present, lady Jane, Graham, Dr. McConnell or John Dallington are left behind in London and with much trepidation, Charles and Jane just found out that Jane is pregnant. But he had already accept this assignment from his brother before they knew of Jane's pregnancy. With the exception of Lenox's sweet young nephew Teddy, on his first naval juncture, Lenox is entirely on his won and he does a fantastic job of taking the reader along on a fine, albeit, angst-filled, adventure. I adore this series and it makes me sad that I will soon be caught up and will have to wait yearly for a new release in a wonderful series.

A Burial at Sea by Charles Finch Set in 1873, in the middle of Victorian England, this is the fifth installment of the murder mysteries that have Charles Lenox as the protagonist. Sir Edmund Lenox, Charles, brother sends Charles on a diplomatic/spying mission to Egypt - where the recently finished Suez Canal is probably the only reason keeping France from declaring an all out war against England. On his way to Egypt, aboard the Lucy, a murder occurs. The captain of the boat, Mr. Jacob Martin, asks Charles to use his prior detective skills to solve the mystery. It's soon evident that one of the officers on board is the culprit. Things can't get any worse, as the captain himself becomes the murderer's second victim. Mr. Lenox has to race to uncover the perpetrator of theses crimes - or risk becoming the next victim himself. A wonderful murder mystery, a spy story and an evocative journey into the Victorian era, this books is a wonderful and easy read. I read it in two days - wonderfully told from the third person point of view. A fun read....
