Interesting perspective

Tonight I have the two-hour season finale of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., "Absolution" and "Ascension":

It’s a showdown a season in the making as S.H.I.E.L.D. takes on Hive, and when his master plan is finally revealed, the team must spring into action. Who will live, and who will die?

I may also catch the season finale of NCIS. It is Very Special Agent Tony DiNozzo's last ever because after 13 years, Michael Weatherly is leaving the show.

Even though I'm still watching via Netflix episodes from back in Season Six (and this is Season 13), I've spend over 100 episodes with this Very Special Agent and I'd like to see how they conclude his character.

Aaand on the book side of things.....

Currently reading DEATH SITS DOWN TO DINNER by Tessa Arlen. 2nd of 2 in series featuring Lady Clementine Montfort and housekeeper Mrs. Jackson, in Edwardian England. 
Lady Montfort is thrilled to receive an invitation to a dinner party hosted by her close friend Hermione Kingsley, the patroness of England's largest charity. Hermione has pulled together a select gathering to celebrate Winston Churchill's 39th birthday. Some of the oldest families in the country have gathered to toast the dangerously ambitious and utterly charming First Lord of the Admiralty. But when the dinner ends, one of the gentlemen remains seated at the table, head down among the walnut shells littering the cloth and a knife between his ribs. Summoned from Iyntwood, Mrs. Jackson helps her mistress trace the steps of suspects both upstairs and downstairs as Hermione's household prepares to host a highly anticipated charity event. Determined to get to the bottom of things, Lady Montfort and Mrs. Jackson unravel the web of secrecy surrounding the bright whirlwind of London society, investigating the rich, well-connected and seeming do-gooders in a race against time to stop the murderer from striking again.
Published in 2016, it has 320 pages. 

Ok, so that's my evening.

Much love,
