A Victorian mystery that gets many of the day to day details of life right, if you overlook the character of DeQuincy’s daughter. A bit Grand Guignol for my taste, but it kept my interest

Incredible reference and a great read even if you're not usually a fan of "thrillers."

All I know is that, of the 100 noted within, I already read 18, had 14 more on to-read lists for a while now, and I added another 24 to said list from the 100 noted.

And then I added another 31 more books just from the authors who wrote about the 100 thrillers as their books also sounded interesting and worth reading.

So, 1 book read, 55 more added to the interminable to-read list. I'd fret about never finishing that to-read list but having more good things to read is never a bad thing.… (mais)
