    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.

    Summary

    When a male prostitute brings Holmes home after he's been attacked Watson knows that he shouldn't ask questions;-

    It is an insolent question and Holmes’ eyebrows lift towards his hairline. I look down to where his white hand rests on his knee and await my fate. He waits until I lift my head again before he speaks. Holmes regards me with a smile darting around his red lips. He sits up Indian fashion in his armchair and steeples his fingers together. “Not often. Now what is that you really wish to know, my dear Watson?”

    I choke back the one word answer ‘everything’ and mumble that it isn’t my concern. Holmes uncurls himself and pours us both a brandy. His fingers touch mine when he hands me the glass and it is unlike any other passing contact. “My God,” I say and gulp the brandy down.
