They grew up in a rough neighborhood, where an intelligent, gentle boy like Mycroft Holmes would have been savaged if it wasn’t for the fact that his best friend was Greg Lestrade, one of the toughest kids around and one who was devoted to keeping Mycroft safe from anyone who might want to hurt him. That devotion deepened into something very different as the boys aged and, though his heart swelled with pride when Mycroft won a scholarship to a prestigious college, that same heart shattered when Mycroft went away, determined to study theology and forge a life in the church.
Without Mycroft’s steady support and clear sense of right and wrong, however, Greg takes a different path and forges a life in the criminal underworld. After a ‘business’ deal goes bad, Greg races to the one person he knows he can trust, but have Greg’s choices forever closed the door on their relationship, be it one of friendship or something much, much more? When an unfamiliar car pulls up to the front of Mycroft’s church, that question has a chance to be answered…
John Watson officially arrives on scene!
