    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

    As the new Duchess of Denver, Lady Peter (alias Harriet Vane) tells H. M. The Queen Mother about her changeable life and fate.
    A crossover from Dorothy Sayers' novels: "Strong Poison", "Gaudy Night", "Busman's honeymoon" to Jill Paton Walsh's novels: "Thrones and Dominations", "The Attenbury Emeralds". I highly admire the works of both the novelists, and am profoundly affected by Harriet Vane's lot.

    Pure fluff - about the year 1953.

    Summary

    For it was Lt. Wimsey, whatever he was calling himself. If Bunter hadn’t been sure of it before, the tendency to start a sentence in one language and finish it in another would have confirmed it.

    Summary

    Crossover between Dorothy Sayers’ Lord Peter Wimsey stories and Sherlock Holmes.

    London, 1921 and London, 1899. It seems that Lord Peter's first case was one of Sherlock Holmes' last.
