    Summary

    Set spring/ summer 1938. With war increasingly likely, the Admiralty need updated charts of the Baltic Sea. Amateur yachtsmen and women are discretely asked to help with this, under the guise of leisurely pleasure cruising. The Swallow, Amazons and Callums are among them. Naval Lieutenant John Walker has been asked to do a little more than that and Nancy inevitably gets involved the task.
    Involves danger and some (not graphic) violence in a few chapters. A warning will be put at the start of any chapter with a fight.

    Summary

    Given time and experience (and an able manservant) he'll be immaculate, no doubt, but just now he has hair a little too long and coat sleeves a fraction too short as though they were designed with someone else entirely in mind. It's just different enough to be interesting, to set the mind whirling with stories, and a musician is only half songs. The remaining is the legend that grows up around him.

    Summary

    It’s been three years since Lord Peter Wimsey met Sherlock Holmes. Since then Peter has done a touch of amateur sleuthing, Mycroft has put him out to pasture, Bunter has been ever-present, Sherlock has died and come back to life, and Harriet Vane has remained flirtatiously (he hoped) elusive.

    Lord Peter is bored.

    Why not investigate the tardiness of his morning paper?

    Summary

    Mycroft once claimed that John wasn’t haunted by the war. How very wrong he was.

    Other men, too, are haunted by this war.

     

    *While this story borrows characters from Dorothy L. Sayers, no previous knowledge of the Lord Peter universe is necessary to understand what goes on; the setting is very firmly in BBC Sherlock. If, though, you want to know more about some of these characters I couldn’t recommend Sayers more highly (no, seriously, what are you waiting for…go read them!).

    *I have, though, in the style of Lord Peter, adapted the title from John Donne’s “Farewell to Love”.
