    Summary

    A collection of Wimseyverse drabbles and ficlets, originally from Tumblr prompts, mostly on words. Chapters are self-contained; it's marked unfinished as it's a repository for things too short to be sensibly organized into a series.

    Summary

    “‘M afraid I proposed,” Lord Peter told his whiskey.

    “Proposed,” Phryne repeated.

    “Yes. Marriage.”

    There was a pause as she took this in. “She was in prison. You’d been called in, all monocled, to keep her from hanging. And your suggestion to her was holy matrimony.”

    Peter flourished a hand in a sad sort of bow.

    Summary

    September, 1946. An airman’s body washed up on a beach brings Lord Peter and Harriet to Barlock, Somerset. To Lord Peter, the dead pilot represents unfinished business. He is the latest in a series of deaths linked to “X”, a shadowy figure who uses his connections within Bridstow’s close-knit homosexual community to extort military intelligence from vulnerable men in high-level roles. A chance encounter with an old college acquaintance hands Harriet a loose end which may have the power to unravel all X’s intrigues.
