    Summary

    There's a limousine waiting at the kerb, and Amanda is standing there with the door open. "In you get," she says, beaming at him.

    Benedict gets in amid a flurry of camera flashes. What will they say, when they see him leaving with the two of them? Can they know? How can they possibly not know? He doesn't care. That's a lie.

    Summary

    John Watson has been out of work for eighteen months after his last restaurant, Fifth Northumberland, burned to the ground in a kitchen accident. He's more than ready for a new project, but who wants to open a restaurant with a washed up celebrity chef who can't even hold a knife anymore?

    Sherlock Holmes was never meant to be a widower; now a machine wears his late husband's face.

    Summary

    “That man—“ I say, jabbing a finger over Watson’s shoulder in the direction we have come, “was making advances.”

    “I beg your pardon?”

    “Advances,” I hiss, aware that my voice will carry if I’m not careful. “On you.”

    Summary

    Both Holmes and I had a weakness for the Turkish bath. It was over a smoke in the pleasant lassitude of the drying-room that I have found him less reticent and more human than anywhere else. On the upper floor of the Northumberland Avenue establishment there is an isolated corner where two couches lie side by side...

    - The Illustrious Client (1924)

    “But why Turkish?” asked Mr. Sherlock Holmes. [...] "Why the relaxing and expensive Turkish rather than the invigorating home-made article?”

    - Lady Frances Carfax (1911)

    There are good reasons.

    Summary

    A continuation (of sorts) of Totus Mundus Agit Histrionem, in which Holmes ends his career as a Shakespearean actor to become a detective. Lydia Bainbridge, Holmes's former on-stage paramour, brings him a curious case from her own exclusive club, which to solve he will have to infiltrate as a professional woman. Holmes is a master of disguise, and Watson is appreciative. Lots more disguise than case, here. Mostly just disguise appreciation. Holmes in a dress. The end.

    Summary

    “What,” I managed, “on earth—”
    Holmes swung his leg over and settled down on the plush seat. It creaked under his weight. “This, my dear Doctor, is what they call ingenuity. Do you like it?”
    “I- I say, Holmes—”
    He took pity on me. “Come, John. I will not be coy with you if you promise me the same courtesy. I found it in a curiosity shop, and I wish to use it in your illustrious and appreciative company.”

    Summary

    The month of June, 1898, was mild enough, but the beginning of July brought hot weather and cloudless skies, the rain of autumn and winter long forgotten. The air hung heavy and oppressive in the city of London, and deterred both decent citizens and the criminal classes from too much physical activity. Sherlock Holmes sat sprawled in his armchair, touching as little of the upholstery as he could, legs outstretched and arms akimbo, fanning himself half-heartedly with a folded-up newspaper that was empty of newsworthy material.

    Summary

    "Dear God, Holmes,” and here I had to lower my voice again, because we were surrounded by people, but not so much that I couldn’t be heard over the whine and rumble of the escalator, “you’re jealous.”

    Summary

    The Great Western Railway wreck of 1898 kills twelve and injures nearly two hundred. Sherlock Holmes is among that number and it affects him more deeply than he realises. Fortunately, he’s on very good terms with his physician.

    Summary

    The stage lost a fine actor, even as science lost an acute reasoner, when he became a specialist in crime.

     

    January, 1881: a despondent army doctor is offered a ticket to a Shakespeare play, and is instantly captivated by the fellow playing the Danish prince himself. Then there is a murder. Then they fall in love.
