About The Book. I suspect the solution to this new case may be more complex.
Lizzie Borden Didn’t Kill Her Parents (Maybe)
I suppose I ought to give some explanation of ourselves, in honor of the new casebook. Daisy says that this makes her Sherlock Holmes, and me Watson.

This is probably fair. After all, I am much too short to be the heroine of this story, and who ever heard of a Chinese Sherlock Holmes? In fact, I think Daisy is still upset about it, though of course she pretends not to be. You see, Daisy is a heroine-like kind of person, and so it should be her that these things happen to.
I, on the other hand, bulge all over like Bibendum the Michelin Man; my cheeks are moony-round and my hair and eyes are stubbornly dark brown. I arrived from Hong Kong partway through seventh grade, and even then, when we were all still shrimps shrimps, for this new casebook, is what we call the little sixth- and seventh-grade girls , Daisy was already famous throughout Deepdean School.
She rode horses, was part of the lacrosse team, and was a member of the Drama Club. The inside of her is not jolly-good-show at all. It took me quite a while to discover that.

Your First Name. Zip Code. Thank you! After graduating from Yale, William Baker, scion of an old line patrician family, goes to work in presidential politics. What he's least prepared for is Sophie, a witty, beautiful and enigmatic woman who makes him question everything he knows about himself.
Charles Lenox, Victorian gentleman and armchair explorer, likes nothing more than to relax in his private study with a cup of tea, a roaring fire and a good book. But when his lifelong friend Lady Jane asks for his help, Lenox cannot resist the chance to unravel a mystery. But Lenox suspects something far more sinister: murder, by a rare and deadly poison.
Murder Is Bad Manners
Was it jealousy that killed Prudence Smith? Or was it something else entirely? In the small hours of the morning one fall day in , a frantic widow visits detective Charles Lenox. What could the September Society have to do with it? What specter, returned from the past, is haunting gentle Oxford? Across London, however, two journalists have just met with violent deaths—one shot, one throttled.
Lenox soon involves himself in the strange case, but must leave it behind to go north to Stirrington, where he is running for Parliament. Once there, he gets a further shock when Lady Jane sends him a letter whose contents may threaten their nuptials. In London, the police apprehend two unlikely and unrelated murder suspects.

But how? Racing back and forth between London and Stirrington, Lenox must negotiate the complexities of crime and politics, not to mention his imperiled engagement. But as the case mounts, Lenox learns that the person behind the murders may be closer to him—and his beloved—than he knows. Returning from a continental honeymoon with his new wife, Lady Jane, Lenox is asked by a colleague in Parliament to consult in the murder of a footman, bludgeoned to death with a brick.
His investigation uncovers some unsettling facts about the family he served and a strange, second identity that the footman himself cultivated. Soon a suspect is arrested, but Lenox has his doubts. Charles Lenox, Member of Parliament, sets sail on a clandestine mission for the government. When an officer is savagely murdered, however, Lenox is drawn toward his old profession, determined to capture another killer.
