    Summary

    "You fear becoming the plaything of a powerful man."

    Greg Lestrade might have risen to the rank of Detective Inspector, but he's still just an East End boy at heart. That's why this arrangement with Mycroft Holmes, power incarnate, is starting to feel so weird - if only Mycroft weren't so damn hard to resist.

    When family tragedy and a murder in the East End start stirring up the shadows of the past, Greg could lose the chance at happiness he's waited twenty years for.

    But is there hope for two souls from such very different worlds?

    Summary

    Four years ago, Sherlock had announced his retirement, leaving London for the country side at barely 53, and John had watched him go without a word. But four years is a long time when you spent it away from the person you've been desperately in love with for decades, and John finally decides it's time to pack his things and have the talk they should have had long ago.

    Summary

    It’s the autumn of 1941, war is raging in Europe, German U-boats are raiding Allied convoys in the Atlantic, the Luftwaffe is bombing English cities, and the cryptographers at Bletchley Park are working feverishly to decode their enemies' encrypted communications. One should consider this challenge and distraction enough for capricious codebreaker Sherlock Holmes. But the true enigmas are yet waiting to be deciphered: an unbreakable code, a strange murder, and the appearance of Surgeon Captain John H. Watson of the Royal Navy.
