    Summary

    All around us exists the impossible; anything you or anyone could conceivably imagine is not only possible, but probable. Legends and myths are as common beneath the city as drops of water in the Thames.

    John Watson loses a bet to the wrong man, and finds himself in a world unlike anything he has ever seen before; except for the many ways that it's the same.

    Summary

    London is a city with two faces. There is Above and there is Below. And Below is the city of people who have fallen through the cracks, the lost, the forgotten and the broken.

    John Watson returns to London from the war, broken and lost until fate leads him to a man who calls himself the consulting detective and the mercenaries who are hunting him. As the result of a single act of kindness John finds himself pulled in the strange, and wonderful, world of Below as the consulting detective attempts to get to safety and solve the string of violent deaths plaguing Below before he is next.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    At the bottom of the stairs you didn’t step out into the rush of Baker Street, but through the cold, damp stone of an ancient wall into the dark of Below.

    Summary

    It has been 9 months since John Watson was invalided home from Afghanistan. Severely depressed, suffering from PTSD, with his life lying in tatters around him it is safe to say he is not adjusting well to civilian life. That is, until he meets a certain homeless man on the underground who is not quite all he seems. Together, they slip silently away from our world to another. The world of the forgotten, hidden far below the cracks in the pavements, in amongst disused underground carriages, down dingy alleyways; a city of monsters and murderers, of angels and saints. London Below: The city of the people who fall between the cracks. And for John, what starts out as the worst mistake of his life, may in fact prove to be the one thing that can save him.

    Summary

    Some stories have many beginnings and many endings, and it can difficult to tell one from the other.

    What can be said is that in the middle of this particular story, Door learns that finding her sister is not the same thing as getting her back, Richard struggles to come to terms with his new calling, and the Marquis may have forgotten something very important.
