If Part One was your basic gap-filler, here’s where things take a turn for the truly hinky.

Part Two: The Gauntlet features smoldering glances, thwarted desire, and fainting spells, plus a generous helping of ominous portents. It’s to be found at the end of Part One (conveniently enough) under the link to The Squire of Reigate.

Tune in soon for the staggering conclusion, crammed to the brim with Holmes h/c, action-hero!Watson, bullets, brandishments and a thunderstorm with a marked appreciation for dramatic effect. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
