Author's summary: Of course they haven’t met up every Friday for fish and chips.

Reccer's comments: I have a bias toward shorter works that are choosy about what they reveal outright. If you're at all interested in that approach and in the prickly détente between John and Mycroft during the Reichenbach hiatus, then Bold_as_Brass has the story for you. The choice of venues in the two-year process of finding a perfect piece of haddock says as much about the characters as any of their wary conversation. Descriptions of settings and dishes - some mercifully spare and some sinfully detailed - read like notes taken mid-meal with greasy fingers, and the character voices ring despairingly, impatiently, smugly, quietly true.

Minor spoilers for The Empty Hearse.
