    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”.

    Summary

    “Well,” said Peter, looking over the destruction that had overtaken the drawing room. “I suppose it was a fairly accurate retelling of the siege of Troy. Although I do fancy there was rather less throwing of pillows and more severe bloodshed in the event.”
