Delighted to see another chapter. Particularly liked the stoical Lestrade, Watson's reputation for declining all fees from the yarders , and the domestic detail. Intrigued by Sophie-a thoughtful and careful touch.

Oh my GOSH. I am in love with your Bob Bradstreet! He's truly a gem! I can see him in my mind, as well as everything about that whole chapter! Oh my gosh! This was an unexpected treat for the weekend, and I saved it for the very last.
I'm worried sick in all the right places, but least I get desensitized, you pop up with a warm moment like the chaos that is the Bradstreet household!

Oh very cool story. Very good eight chapters.

Delighted to read more from you:-) And don't apologise, we all need time, inclination and inspiration-quality is consistent, so you may need to change your middle name:-)
I am still enjoying the complicated relationships which have developed between the Yarders, and the doggedness of Gregson's enquiries of Lestrade. Interesting twist if a woman is involved in the gruesome events, and quite subtle of Gregson to leave Lestrade to consider the implications-regarding the whole case, and his own attack,
Ready for the next chapter when you are:-)

I am completely stunned.
This is a pretty twist on things...

So much impresses me in this chapter; the way you show sparks flying off the yarders yet unshakable loyalty; Watson's personal interest in anything which happens to them; Elizabeth carrying on quietly in the background and the horror building up to the discovery at the end. and all the time, a methodical sifting of evidence and consideration of likely suspects and motives. Grim, but very, very nice work:-)

I can see her doing it, too.
More, please? The chase scene was very good.

Computer broken, grrrh! I would give this a long, fantastic review that it deserves, but I can only say I'm speechless and amazed and waiting with my breath in my rib cage for the next chapter!

So glad I was done eating dinner when you told us what was in the box...
Birthday, and if there are presents, they'd better be nice ones. Poor guy deserves it after this. :]

You have laid this chapter out beautifully, framed with Lestrade's list. Evans' changing POV of his boss was well done, and Lestrade's chase, injuries and aftermath worked well. I liked the little spike of humour with his daughter, too.
Mrs P :-)
Oh, birthday party or Hopkins vs Lestrade clan:-)

SO glad you updated. More, please?

I am speechlessly glad to see you back. Thank you! And now I have a reason to check my email every night.

YAY! Finally another chapter!
When is Holmes going to show up?

Delighted to see more from you. I have missed your Yarders:) The detail about the various families and relationships is fascinating, I like the grudging acknowledgement from Jones that Lestrade was the best of the yard, and Abigail's exchanges with Lestrade were intriguing; a very effective scene.
I shere Lestrade's feeling that this will get worse..
