    Bookmarker's Notes

    Mien gott. Read this, and fall in love all over again. My only family to whom I've come out were okay with it. They are the only two (of . . . um, a lot, counting halves and steps and in-laws especially. Just siblings, though, there are 7.) whose opinion concerns me.

    This is gorgeous.

    Summary

    “Seriously? You? You're going to be a stripper?” John tried to keep the amused incredulity off his face. Judging by the disgruntled look Sherlock gave him, he was not entirely successful in this endeavor.

    “I can dance, John.” Sherlock’s lower lip threatened to edge out into a full-fledged pout.

    “Yeah, okay, but.......” John trailed off. Sure, he had seen Sherlock dance on rare occasions, but a waltz was a far cry from a strip tease, and his possibly asexual (virginal?) flatmate, was proposing to do just that. “.....where will you hide your handcuffs?”

    Summary

    "Xie [...] had invented an entire pleasure-industry by combining superior visual aesthetics with impeccable personal attention. Drasha salons were by that time a feature of any even half-decent house of repose in every pleasure district in the British Isles, but once upon a time, when Xie debuted, there had been only one, and Xie had named it: the Icehouse."

    *
    In a contemporary dystopia, Unity is peace--despite the fact unsanctioned information, illicit currency, and every sort of danger flows unchecked in the world's pleasure districts.

    John Watson, a weary hired gun, is assigned by the mysterious Mentor to investigate a subversive element lurking in the Icehouse, the world's most famous House of Repose. As accustomed as he is to dealing with the unexpected, John is nevertheless woefully unprepared to meet the gem of the Ice house, Xie, the world renowned "drashaskaya," the living work of art after which all other drashas are modeled.

    In sumptuous suites, amid trailing puddles of silk and fervent whispers in the night, John soon learns that nothing is as it seems in the floating world of London's pleasure district.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I wouldn't have thought Sherlock as a geisha could ever work, but in this one it does, beautifully so. I highly recommend this gorgeous story.
