Re: What are you reading now?
Drood picked up steam about 500 pages in, and the last third or so was downright urgent. Unfortunately, the ending was pretty anticlimactic.
I had intended to start Caleb Carr's Sherlock Holmes pastiche "The Italian Secretary" next, and I still may, but it would be nice to get out of the Victorian era for a bit. This one does echo back to Mary Stuart's time, though.
