When Billy, a troubled young man, comes to private eye Cormoran Strike's office to ask for his help investigating a crime he thinks he witnessed as a child, Strike is left deeply unsettled. While Billy is obviously mentally distressed, and cannot remember many concrete details, there is something sincere about him and his story.

but I only liked this one. I LOVED the other 3 Cormoran Strike novels, but this one fell short, too many loose-ended characters that were all vaguely connected at the very end, I expected more. Looking forward to the next one though!

Take a trip back to Jane Austen's world and the many places she lived as historian Lucy Worsley visits Austen's childhood home, her schools, her holiday accommodations, the houses - both grand and small - of the relations upon whom she was dependent, and the home she shared with her mother and sister towards the end of her life.

Really enjoyed the performance. Enjoyed learning about not only Jane's life, but her family's as well. A definite must read/listen for any Austen fan for sure!
