Currently reading HOME BY NIGHTFALL by Charles Finch. This is 9th of 9 in series featuring Charles Lenox, a gentleman sleuth, in 1860s London. Here's a description:
It's London in 1876, and the whole city is abuzz with the enigmatic disappearance of a famous foreign pianist. Lenox has an eye on the matter – as a partner in a now-thriving detective agency, he's a natural choice to investigate. Just when he's tempted to turn his focus to it entirely, however, his grieving brother asks him to come down to Sussex, and Lenox leaves the metropolis behind for the quieter country life of his boyhood. Or so he thinks. In fact, something strange is afoot in Markethouse: small thefts, books, blankets, animals, and more alarmingly a break-in at the house of a local insurance agent. As he and his brother to investigate this small accumulation of mysteries, Lenox realizes that something very strange and serious indeed may be happening, more than just local mischief. Soon, he's racing to solve two cases at once, one in London and one in the country, before either turns deadly.
I intend to work a full day today so I'll be elevating the rest of the night after I get home. So I will either be reading or watching Netflix.
Merry Christmas Eve Eve!
