Publisher's Summary

"No mystery writer except perhaps Anne Perry is as successful as Charles Finch at evoking the atmosphere of Victorian London." (Washington Post)

From best-selling author Charles Finch comes the third and final in a prequel trilogy to his lauded Charles Lenox series.

London, 1855. A young and eager Charles Lenox faces his toughest case yet: A murder without a single clue. Slumped in a third-class car at Paddington Station is the body of a handsome young gentleman. He has no luggage, empty pockets, and no sign of identification on his person. And putting together the clues to the mystery of the man's identity only raises more questions, when Lenox discovers that the crime has a significant connection to America.

As he seeks to solve this impossible case, the young Lenox must confront an equally troublesome problem in his personal life. Kitty Ashbrook, beautiful and cultured, appears to be his soulmate - but love comes with obstacles of its own. In tandem, this fiendish early case and passionate, deeply felt affair will irrevocably shape the brilliant detective and thoughtful gentleman Lenox is destined to become.

Written in Charles Finch's unmistakably witty and graceful voice, The Last Passenger is a cunning, thrilling, and deeply satisfying conclusion to this trilogy of prequels to his best-selling Charles Lenox series.

Keeps to the formula

Still good, but no longer feels fresh. To me the characters are not interesting any more. Much more emphasis is spent on story detail than character development.

A delightful surprise

I check my series every year to see if another book has been recorded. I was delighted to see another Charles Lenox Mystery. This one did not disappoint.

One of the best in the series

A gentle story, despite being about several murders and the slave trade. It is the kind concern that the characters show each other, the development of the main character, Charles Lennox, and the descriptions of the London of the 1850s which carries the story along. Also, the reader is pitch perfect, a kind and melodious voice, if a bit awkward, much like Charles Lennox himself.

I have thoroughly enjoyed every book in this series.

I love Charles’ detective work and thoughts he shares.
The slavery parts remind me of our country’s shameful history were heartbreaking all because of greedy old white men.
The author always does a good job of wrapping up the story and the narrator is wonderful. I would listen to this whole series over again!

Good Atmosphere but Modest Story

As usual in this series, English aristocracy in 1856 is interesting with explanations for terms like cold turkey. However the mystery and romance are not so good.

Fantastic

This prequel is yet another feather in the cap of Charles Finch. His Lenox series is always historically fascinating and riveting.

Just OK

More like a Wikipedia article on slavery in America than a good murder mystery. Mr. Langston needs to practice his old cotton eye Joe accent before attempting it again. There are NO black men from Atlanta that sound anything like that. Pretty sure they would have sounded more proper English speaking than his attempt, considering the time period, the African’s owner would more than likely have been British born and raised, therefore his accent should have just been less colloquial.

The characters are endearing and lovable, which is the one reason I continue to listen to the series. James Langton is a wonderful narrator and makes the book an easy listen.
