    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

    “I don’t think I’ll want to talk about this again. There’s no point. But I have to ask, did you even once…at least tell me, while I was dying back here, waltzing into a goddamn spider’s snare, at least tell me you thought of me when you were away.”

    Sherlock blinks once, twice, then stands up.

    “Of course. Of course you can’t even answer that. Go, go sulk in your room.”

    “No, John. I’m going to answer you,” Sherlock starts unbuttoning his shirt. “You’re the one who’s still not ‘getting it.’ Moriarty was never going to kill me, not straight away. He was going to kill YOU."
