    Summary

    Before Holmes met Watson, he met a young pickpocket...

    Sherlock Holmes, consulting detective to ... nobody in particular, actually, is struggling to make his mark on the world of criminal investigation. In fact, his career looks doomed to failure before it's even really begun.

    Falling behind on his rent payments and forced to rely on his increasingly exasperated brother for handouts, Holmes takes on a seemingly pointless case involving a burglary in which nothing is stolen.

    But, when his pocket is picked, Holmes spots a business opportunity that might just help to revitalise his flagging fortunes.

    Summary

    The year is 1920: the Great War is over, and Sherlock Holmes has retreated to his cottage in Sussex in search of privacy and quiet. But a mystery is unfolding in the little village of Fulworth, and Holmes can't resist getting involved. Having John Watson at his side during a rare weekend visit is a further temptation, and together they delve into a case of murder and mayhem that threatens the whole town. The reminder of their younger days and the excitement that first brought them together rekindles dormant affection, and long-suffered secrets are reluctantly, inevitably revealed.

    Summary

    (1883) Holmes has made it well known the extent to which he abhors the softer passions, and so I am careful not to offend him by the depth of my feelings with a set of rules I have established for myself.
    On the other hand... Holmes rules, if there are any guidelines he ascribes to, apparently allow for watching me sleep in the early morning.
