    Summary

    London, 1950. Clifford has coming looking for Sally. Instead he finds a girl who may or may not be her – or their – daughter, the reclusive former Master of Ceremonies, and an annoying parrot.

    He becomes part of their strange household, full of love and bickering; sorrow, pain and music. No-one will tell him where Sally is, or even whether she’s alive. No-one will tell him anything. Except the parrot, who tells him that life is a Cabaret.

    Summary

    "To be born in Wales,
    Not with a silver spoon in your mouth,
    But, with music in your blood
    And with poetry in your soul,
    Is a privilege indeed."

    Summary

    All day long I scribble notes on paper. Not just the case notes--the forms, too, permissions for this and requisitions for that. That you go home after a long day on the job and then you write more--I know there's money in it, but I could never make myself. Maybe that's changing now. Maybe one day the world will marvel at the Memoirs of Inspector Lestrade, as they do at Vidocq's.

    Well, this entry's going to be memorable, anyway.
    *****
    Lestrade comes to terms with Sherlock Holmes.
