Just in time for Valentine's Day? They'd be perfect for Halloween in the Castro.

सबसे रहस्यमय हत्या

Combine Scotland Yard with the Romanov Dynasty and throw in a heavy dollop of the Subcontinent under British rule and you've got all the ingredients for a fantastic mystery series. Welcome to my world, thanks to Barbara Cleverly...

For anyone wondering why I've been taking my "lunch break" at 8am recently, you now have your answer! Just. one. more. chapter.
