Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
Thank you!
Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
One more -- Emmuska Orczy, The Old Man in the Corner (9780486440484)

Also, maybe it would be better to include the individual volumes of the Sherlock Holmes canon instead of combination volumes (I suspect this was a "search" thing)?

Just in case -- the ISBNs are:

A Study in Scarlet: 9780241952894
The Sign of Four: 9780140439076
Adventures of Sherlock Holmes: 9780192835086
Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes: 9780192838117
Return of Sherlock Holmes: 9780192123176
His Last Bow: 9780192123152

"The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes" mostly contains cases that take Holmes outside of London, so I'm not sure it qualifies. Neither does "The Valley of Fear" (set in Birlstone, Sussex & Vermissa Valley, PA, USA) ... nor, of course, "Hound of the Baskervilles."

More books from the participants' reading plan lists -- including unassigned / "free square" / "wild card" books that would fit this category:

The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson (9780142422052)

Slightly Shady by Amanda Quick (9780553583366) -- note: I can find that it's set in England, but London, too?
SusannaG - Confessions of a Crazy Cat Lady
My friends' reviews on GR seem to suggest that Slightly Shady is indeed set largely in London.
Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
Cool, thanks for confirming!
Murder by Death
9781594138287 isn't in the database; added via title.
Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
Sigh. That "not in the DB" thing is getting to be ... disappointing, especially since ISBN search doesn't seem to be adding as-yet-not-included books any longer, either. Obviously if a book is on my own shelves here on BL, I'm giving you the ISBN of that edition, but if it's not, I go for whatever currently shows up as the main commercial edition online ...
Murder by Death
It hasn't worked since the EU privacy thing kicked in - I think they lost their contracts with Amazon (same thing happened to my at-home database software). ShelveIt is truly the only import mechanism we have at the moment and it only works for the .co.uk site. I sent an email to Kate about non-Amazon alternatives that are all free and begged her to pass it along. She was happy to send it along to development and not at all adverse to the suggestions, but not overly optimistic about the chances either. :( So I have no freaking idea what's going to happen.
Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
They really *should* prioritize this -- a functioning database is the life blood of any site like this. It keeps amazing me that this isn't more of an obvious focus ...
Murder by Death
Agreed - I suspect the site isn't making enough $$ to have a full time developer and Kate, so they're waiting until enough revenue accumulates to pay for x development hours and everything has to wait until that point. Pure, irresponsible speculation on my part but it would explain why the site goes without for so long and then goes offline and everything is done at once.
Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
I agree -- though obviously, with the database going to pot the site is likely going downhill, not uphill. But who are we to pontificate ...
XOX
House of Silk by Anthony Horowitz 978-1409142256

Would this fit?
Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
It would, definitely. And I'll add that its sequel, "Moriarty", would also fit.
Murder by Death
Added both. :)
XOX
Thanks.

More from the participants' "reading plans" posts:

Day of the Dead by Nicci French (9780718179694)
-- also Frieda Klein book No. 1, "Blue Monday" (9781405913003)
Winterblaze by Kristen Callihan (9780349406046)
A Private Business by Barbara Nadel (9780857387769)

Next batch from the participants' "reading plans" posts:

The Sherlockian by Graham Moore (9780446572583)
Firelight by Kristin Callihan (9780349405995) -- though a later book in the series ("Winterblaze") is already here, and going by the name of the series, which actually *is* "Darkes London", I would assume that all books in the series qualify for this list.
