    Summary

    Whisky-drinking, cigarette-smoking, and jazz-loving Anglican priest Sidney Chambers is a self-admitted sinner and knows he has a lot to atone for. Currently recovering from a heartbreak, he has placed himself under strict social moratorium and sees no one but his housemate and curate Leonard Finch and housekeeper Mrs. Chapman. Much to the frustration of his best friend, Detective Inspector Geordie Keating of the Cambridge CID, he no longer involves himself with the police investigations and instead "gets his jollies" reading hackneyed whodunit novels. Geordie believes Sidney no longer wants to get his hands dirty, but Sidney tells him he only needs a mental break.

    When a woman in Sidney's parish gets murdered and the scene resembles a storyline from a book written by an author he currently admires, Sidney reluctantly agrees to help Geordie, especially after he discovers that one of his new parishioners, a lovely young American, is herself a mystery writer. As the body count rises in Grantchester, each one resembling scenes from the books Sidney has been reading, Sidney and Geordie must once again work together to uncover the identity of the killer, even if the one person Sidney could no longer trust... is himself.

    Summary

    When Jenny Shepherd pushed Tony into the under cover relationship with La Grenouille's daughter, she didn't anticipate the extent of the Rene Benoit's connections nor the depth of his disdain for agencies and agents, who try to get him through his daughter.

    As a result, although the world at large thinks that Tony's dead, his suffering has only just begun when Benoit hands him over to a business partner to extract his revenge- a partner by the name of James Moriarty.

    Summary

    London, 29th December 1940, 8 pm.
    The London Blitz reached its nadir with the bombing of the City of London and the area around its most beloved landmark, St. Paul’s Cathedral.
    John Watson and Sherlock Holmes meet as the flames blaze and roar all around them.
    But who is that dark-haired young man and why is he risking his life in such a careless manner? This is what Doctor Watson is wondering, as he eventually becomes enmeshed in a mystery that will take him away from his dreary, hopeless life and plunge him into the secret life of wartime London.

    The characters belong to ACD and the BBC. The story is mine, so please do not post anywhere else without express permission.

    “But now, since the silence will not rise and surround us,
    Leaving us wondering about ourselves, looking each to the other,
    Sketching the gesture that will finish with consummation,
    We shall not know what meaning was held by that dream.”
    Memorial for 1940 – John Gould Fletcher
