I started reading again (as the Christmas approaches) Hercule Poirot's Christmas , after about 35 years since the last time, and as perhaps you remember, in the introduction there is a dedication for .... James , :-) so it's perfect.

not bad, I like it, maybe just too squeezed (few episodes for so much history and details in the books).

--The New York Journal of Books said: «Forty Days Without Shadow is more than a splendidly told murder investigation and its consequences. It is a fascinating telling of bloody history, culture, and indigenous people struggling against all odds to survive. The winter scenes are frighteningly real, at times leaving you breathless and filled with awe.»--

Charles Dickens and Wilkie Collins

#^No Thoroughfare


Two boys from the Foundling Hospital are given the same name, with disastrous consequences in adulthood. Two associates, wishing to right the wrong, are commissioned to find a missing heir. Their quest takes them from fungous wine cellars in the City of London to the sunshine of the Mediterranean—across the Alps in winter. Danger and treachery would prevail were it not for the courage of the heroine and the faithful company servant.

The story contains crafted descriptions, well-drawn and diverse characters, eerie and exotic backgrounds, mystery, semi-concealed identities, brinkmanship with death, romance, the eventual triumph of Good over Evil, and many other elements expected in classic Dickens.

First published in 1867 there are thematic parallels with other books from Dickens' mature writings, including Little Dorrit (1857) and especially Our Mutual Friend (1865). The Listener will decide if this story yields insights into The Mystery of Edwin Drood (unfinished 1870).

Wilkie Collings collaborated with Charles Dickens to produce this ‘Christmas’ book and the stage play of the same name. In the book Collins assisted in Act 1 and Act 4; Collins scripted most of the stage play with Dickens’ assistance. If this book were released today it would be splashed "THE BOOK OF THE FILM". - Summary by Alan Chant.

Sing a song of sixpence,
    A pocket full of rye.
    Four and twenty blackbirds,
    Baked in a pie.

When the pie was opened,
    The birds began to sing;
    Wasn't that a dainty dish,
    To set before the king?

The king was in his counting house,
    Counting out his money;
    The queen was in the parlour,
    Eating bread and honey.

The maid was in the garden,
    Hanging out the clothes,
    When down came a blackbird
    And pecked off her nose.
