    Summary



    “What’s that, then? We have a new case?” Robbie bends down, bracing his forearm on the back of James’s chair to lean in close and peer at the computer screen. The scent of early morning James—coffee, cigarette smoke, croissant—washes over him.

    “They’re bronze statues. A research team at Cambridge believes they’re by Michelangelo.” James scrolls back up through the story, past the couple of small photos to a large photo of two statues. “He’s the artist who painted the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel,” he adds.

    “I may not have the benefit of a Cambridge education, Inspector,” Robbie responds testily, “but I know who Michelangelo is.”

    James tilts his big head back and grins up at Robbie. Even partially upside down, his expression is cheeky, bluegreen eyes crackling with mischief.

    Summary

    “Sir,” Hathaway’s voice seemed faint, “as much as I’d like to be an inspector, I have no desire to climb over your dead body to do so.” Hathaway’s hand grasped his shoulder, sliding up to the juncture of his neck and shoulder, his thumb brushing against Robbie’s collarbone. His voice was soft, gentle: “Are you all right?”

    It's the worst crime scene that Robbie has ever seen, perhaps it was that, or being pulled off the case, but he was more than ready to take a chance...

    Summary

    She didn’t know what to do with all the emotion just roiling around inside her, so she shoved it aside. Pushed it down, smothered it so she could be there for her mum.

    Foul weather, hostile witnesses, and a late night after a very early morning lead to Lewis and Hathaway spending the night in a B&B. Hathaway is far from keen on the idea.

    “Thought you’d want to know, Hathaway. There’s been a 999 call from your boss’s next-door neighbour. Reported something happening in Lewis’s flat, and asked for police, fire and ambulance.”

    It's the day Lewis is due back in work after his Italian holiday, and James is awoken with bad news...

    Summary

    Robbie still couldn’t quite believe what was going on – a curse, apparently, one Innocent was thankfully familiar with, and one that rarely lasted more than a day. A curse that had left James physically shrunken to his five-year-old self but with all his planet-sized brain still intact.

    Summary

    Robbie would have to admit that it felt good to be back on the road with the band again after a few years away from the music scene, and the young blond lad perched on a stool with his guitar promised to make things more interesting still.

    Summary

    “We should do this every year neither of us has other commitments. A fallback date – you know, a bit like those friends in films who say they’ll marry each other if they’re both still single by a certain age.”

    Summary

    The December sky was a clear, pale blue, with barely a few wisps of white clouds to be seen. It almost certainly wouldn’t be a white Christmas this year, not unless the weather took a dramatic turn overnight...

    A few months after ‘What Lies Tangled’, and just a few short days before Christmas, James is injured in the line of duty. Christmas Eve finds him on the road to recovery, and the stories here feature four different aftermaths of this same event, in four possible futures.
