    Summary

    “Why, exactly, do you not sleep?”

    “I’ve told you, it’s simply a waste of time. There are too many books to be read.”

    “But why really? If it were just that, you’d have at least tried sleeping.”

    “I suppose it always seemed a bit foolish.”

    Summary

    It’s the trial of the century: bestselling mystery author Anthony Crowley stands accused of poisoning his former lover. He’s got means (arsenic), motive (the breakup), and opportunity (a meeting the night of the murder); his guilt seems certain.

    Certain, that is, to everyone except Lord Aziraphale Eastgate, rare book collector and amateur detective. Aziraphale’s not sure why he’s so convinced of Crowley’s innocence, but he’s determined to save him from the gallows--by finding the real murderer before it’s too late.

    Summary

    “Have you ever been to Brighton?”

    “Can’t say that I have."

    “Lovely place. I was there once in the eighteenth century, back when everyone was taking sea air as a curative. Someone upstairs got the bright idea to dole out some blessings and try to encourage a spiritual awakening. Complete nonsense, didn’t work at all. But it was a lovely weekend.”

    Summary

    He’s never forgotten, although She tried to burn the memory from him, that glorious day when he laid Aziraphale in the heavenly grass and kissed him. Only the once, because it hadn’t felt like something that needed to be grasped, needed to be held tightly, because it hadn’t felt like something She would soon take away from him.

     

     

     

    Crowley remembers before, and Aziraphale doesn't.

    Summary

    “You were a starmaker?” Aziraphale asks, his fingers twisting his ring. His angelic ring. It always feels heavier when he talks to the demon. “I didn’t know.”

     

    “Never told you, did I?” Crawley’s indifference is careful. “But yeah. I was.”

     

     

    New year in Cairo 2110 BC and new year in London 2019 look remarkably similar when there's Crowley, Aziraphale, a bunch of kids and those old familiar stars watching over them.
