Acton & Doyle #8 Coming Fall 2018

 "You've shown an extraordinary interest in mathematics, lately, if I may say so, madam."  "Not really, but I've an extraordinary interest in sortin' things out--and the sooner the better--before my poor husband bursts from tryin' to pretend all is well."  The servant blinked. "Is all not well, madam?"  "No, it's not, but don't you dare say anythin' Reynolds, before I sort it out. He's tryin' so hard, poor thing. The way things are goin', he'll never go on holiday again, and small blame to him."
