    Summary

    In the London of 2081, aerotaxis are commonplace, personal identification is tied to computers, and robots are tightly regulated. John Watson, former army roboticist, has an expired license and an illegal tri-wing screwdriver in his desk. Sherlock Holmes has fingerprints and a name, and in an office somewhere in Whitehall there are blueprints for the metal underneath his perfect, artificial skin.

    Summary

    Retired combat medic Craig Standish is looking forward to time in his family home on Long Island while starting his life as a civilian. One morning, on a walk in West Hills County Park, he happens upon the most unlikely of things: a very beautiful, very naked young man who can't remember who he is or how he ended up under a pile of leaves in the woods. What else can Craig do but take the young man home and try to help him regain his memory?

    He never expects that the process requires a cat, lots of coffee, and a mountain of paper - and all too little in the way of clothes.

Later in the same summer, Dorothea, Dick and Titty, along with the small Callums then revisit the Hebrides. (I've got Port and Starboard as Nell and Bess in by copy of coot club (not a first ed.) so went with Port being Nell and Starboard being Bess.) If I've got it wrong, I'm sorry.
