    Summary

    This has been archived at Sacrilege! since...I disremember exactly, but it's got to be at least ten years ago. At the time I was using "Irene Adler" as my pseudonym for the Holmes fiction. Sacrilege! is not updated much now but it's still a great site and well worth a visit if you have never been; it's probably the oldest H/W archive on the net, possibly still one of the largest, and Cress/Miss Roylott really put a lot of effort into it. But I figured I'd repost the Sacrilege! stories here so they can be with "Adventure of Downton Abbey."

    So: The year after the Return, Holmes is working hard on a blackmail case and won't tell Watson who the client is. Watson does a little digging, and learns a lot of things that he really should have known already. The rest is history.
