"What you do in this world is a matter of no consequence. The question is what can you make people believe you have done" ~Sherlock Holmes, A Study in Scarlet.
Emily Schott wants nothing more than satiation; a lust for destruction, for carnality and, most importantly, vengeance on those who snatched away her ability to trust.

Life in Baker Street continues. The unattainable man finds himself doubting his own, cold reason, challenged by a shy smile, a mess of scars, and a brilliant mind. Millie Shon, the subconscious, John Watson, the heart, and Sherlock Holmes, the head, can only watch as a new, ruthless partnership pushes the boundaries of crime itself.
