Double cross purposes by Mary Sutherland

'Unfortunately, the Minister was neither an adulterer, nor corrupt, which eliminated some possible moves. Since he was simply a sanctimonious prick, it was time to fall back to plan B.' Mycroft's point of view is hard to pull off but this complex portrait of him in action during 'A Study in Pink' balances Machiavellian machine & human softie. The novelette is fleshed out with a diverse cast of overlooked canon characters & OCs
