    Summary

    I scowled, annoyed as usual by Holmes's intrusion on my privacy. I was afraid that some day he might read something more telling, something more dangerous, and that in uncovering the truth he would ruin our intimate friendship for good. "I’m not exactly feeling up to scratch this morning, Holmes."

    "And yet your eyebrows continue their semaphore."

     
    Christmas Eve day. Come mid-morning, Holmes and Watson find themselves with three gifts, two cases, and one mild hangover. If they're lucky, they won't be additionally burdened with a partridge in a pear tree—though with the direction everything is heading, Watson wouldn't bet against it.

    Summary

    Almost three years after Sherlock's death, John is a best-selling author with a new book approaching publication. He is thrown head long back into the world of deduction by the murder of “thehonourable” Ronald Adair, a Sherlock Holmes conspiracy theorist, who was killed by a professional hit for no apparent reason.

    While taking down the second-to-last man in the Moriarty web, meanwhile, Sherlock becomes desperately ill, and makes a mistake that costs him his identity. Frantic and hallucinating, he automatically calls John for help, unwittingly bringing Moran on to his trail.

    With Schonberg and Moran each after Sherlock’s blood, and his condition deteriorating rapidly, John, Mycroft and Lestrade are in for an international race against time to keep Sherlock alive long enough to get him back from the dead.

    Summary

    The morning after John and Sherlock's party is full of surprises. Harry finds a priceless blue gemstone in the entrails of a chicken. John and Sherlock find themselves on the trail of something more sinister than a jewel theft. Lestrade finds himself in Molly's bed. Which seems, to both of them, like a pretty big problem...until Molly finds a corpse in her garden.

    Lestrade and Molly try to solve the murder--and hopefully solve the mystery of how they actually feel about each other. Sherlock and John try to figure out how that sapphire got into that chicken...and how this relationship upgrade is supposed to work. Harry, well, all she's trying to do is start up a law practice and get back into the dating game. But they're all trapped in the same weird web; and they're not the only ones being drawn into its center.

    This is a sequel to "Empty Houses." It crosses "The Blue Carbuncle" with a few other things, including T. S. Eliot's The Waste Land.. If you care about the intertextual stuff, the notes at the end of Chapter 7 will tell you all about that. (NOTES CONTAIN SPOILERS. BIG SPOILERS.) But you do not have to understand The Waste Land, or ever have heard of it, to enjoy the story.
