I'm currently reading NO SHRED OF EVIDENCE by Charles Todd. This is 18th of 18 in series featuring an Rutledge, a shell-shocked World War I veteran returning to his job at Scotland Yard, in London.
On the north coast of Cornwall, an apparent act of mercy is repaid by an arrest for murder. Four young women have been accused of the crime. A shocked father calls in a favor at the Home Office. Scotland Yard is asked to review the case. However, Inspector Ian Rutledge is not the first Inspector to reach the village. Following in the shoes of a dead man, he is told the case is all but closed. Even as it takes an unexpected personal turn, Rutledge will require all his skill to deal with the incensed families of the accused, the grieving parents of the victim, and local police eager to see these four women sent to the infamous Bodmin Gaol. Then why hasn’t the killing stopped? With no shred of evidence to clear the accused, Rutledge must plunge deep into the darkest secrets of a wild, beautiful and dangerous place if he is to find a killer who may—or may not—hold the key to their fate.
Published 2016, it has 352 pages.
Tonight I have Agent Carter on TV. "Life of the Party" and "Monsters":
Peggy recruits an unexpected adversary when she realizes she needs help saving Wilkes in the first half of this combined episode. In the second half, Whitney searches for even more dark power; and Jarvis comes to learn that he shouldn't make promises he can't keep.
TWO of them? I can't stay up until 10! I'm tired and cranky as it is!
I don't know why I'm tired and cranky. I slept ok last night I think. And I'm listening to music now.
It will pass. :)
