    Summary

    "Xie [...] had invented an entire pleasure-industry by combining superior visual aesthetics with impeccable personal attention. Drasha salons were by that time a feature of any even half-decent house of repose in every pleasure district in the British Isles, but once upon a time, when Xie debuted, there had been only one, and Xie had named it: the Icehouse."

    *
    In a contemporary dystopia, Unity is peace--despite the fact unsanctioned information, illicit currency, and every sort of danger flows unchecked in the world's pleasure districts.

    John Watson, a weary hired gun, is assigned by the mysterious Mentor to investigate a subversive element lurking in the Icehouse, the world's most famous House of Repose. As accustomed as he is to dealing with the unexpected, John is nevertheless woefully unprepared to meet the gem of the Ice house, Xie, the world renowned "drashaskaya," the living work of art after which all other drashas are modeled.

    In sumptuous suites, amid trailing puddles of silk and fervent whispers in the night, John soon learns that nothing is as it seems in the floating world of London's pleasure district.

    Summary

    An old one-night stand of Sherlock’s shows up at Baker Street one day, a sassy Scottish fellow who bears more than a passing resemblance to John Watson. John goes into full jealous trash mode.

    "Give me one good reason why I shouldn’t take him up on his offer.”
    Their gazes locked, both of them breathing hard through their anger.
    And something changed in John’s expression.
    “Because I’m making you a better one,” he said, low and firm.

    (You do NOT need to have seen WTF for this to be enjoyable, promise!)
