    Summary

    Visiting professors John Watson and Sherlock Holmes are longtime academic rivals — and now unwilling office mates — at a prestigious American university. When their tense arguments give way to an undercurrent of mutual attraction, their war of wits turns into something more personal — until it goes off course. A party, a phone number, and deserted office at night might just bring them back together.

    Summary

    More than a year after Sherlock Holmes's return from the dead, his cohabitation with the good Doctor has more or less returned to normal. With their daemons at their sides, Holmes and Watson are as keen a pair of crime solvers as they ever were. Deep in the winter of 1895, their limits as a team are tested when a young woman's daemon is stolen from her side and destroyed. It is not the first of such attacks, Watson learns, and he and Holmes immediately set out to find the culprit of the horrifying deed. They are led into a web of back alleys and gambling debt that leads ultimately to the heart of the government, all in the pursuit of the elusive element of Dust. But their investigation is not a secret one, and the duo's fame in the city of London brings them more trouble than expected and forces them to take some measures to protect one another that violate many a social taboo.

    Summary

    "You're a man," John says
    "Problem?" the man asks, his voice a rumble of thunder across sandy planes.
    "No. I just didn't expect..."
    "Well," the man says. "Neither did I."

     

     
    John Watson wants not to be bored, and not to be forced to take these dance classes his fiancée wants him to take. Sherlock Holmes wants to live off of money not begged off of his brother, and to be allowed to solve cases that the idiots at New Scotland Yard clearly can't solve. They meet one Friday at 4 o'clock. Nothing is ever dull again.

    Summary

    “I’m looking for a castle,” John informed the scarecrow. “A moving one.”

    Except that, as it turned out, it was not a moving one at all.
