    Summary

    A formerly brilliant doctoral student and currently mediocre bookshop owner, Bilbo Baggins is quite happy to live in quiet obscurity of his distant hometown of Hobbiton, his dreams of uncovering the history of Middle-Earth locked away in ruins and ancient manuscripts all but forgotten.

    He's happy until one day a colleague of Thorin Oakenshield, a battle-wearied campaigner for dwarvish civil rights determined to uncover the true story of his people, invites him to join a dangerous and illegal excavation in the ruins of Erebor. What Thorin and Bilbo uncover about the ancient history of a now impoverished and culturally destitute people, about the efforts undergone to conceal it, and about their own troubled lives, have consequences for the past, present and future that neither of them could have ever imagined.

Maybe their places are by the partners at their firm?

    Summary

    Jean Cherry is the biggest singer in America right now, and Marco’s in the front row for his first concert back in his hometown being pressed against the stage by a deafening crowd. He’s only there for his sister, see. He likes Jean’s music just fine, but guys don’t care about seeing him up close. Guys don’t really know all of the lyrics to all of his songs. Guys find the way Jean dances hilariously outrageous, and sometimes try to copy him; they don’t find it mesmerising and incomprehensively seductive.

    Marco is absolutely only there for his sister. He swears.

    Summary

    Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it.
    - Terry Pratchett

    Sherlock Holmes is and always will be a mystery. An unsolvable puzzle and an equation without variables.

    A mystery with perfect hair and a scent of grease and cigarette smoke.

    A sinful temptation.
