An original short story set in the world of Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes, €€œMary€€™s Christmas€€ goes back to a time long before the two met on the Sussex Downs in the spring of 1915.It begins one winter€€™s evening in late 1921 or 1922 when the two are seated by their fire, sharing stories about the unexplored portions of their past. Naturally, a person might expect the older Holmes to have a large collection of these€€”but tonight it is Russell who astonishes her husband with news of a previously unknown, even unsuspected, relation.Uncle Jake: scoundrel, charmer, eternal youth, black sheep of the wealthy Boston Russell family. Jake is the kind of man who literally drops out of a cloudless summer sky, who makes a good if shady living from his wits, whose holiday specialty is a series of wildly inappropriate and passionately adored Christmas presents. Whose older brother loves him, and doesn€€™t trust him an inch.What young girl could resist his charms? Even when his plots lead young Mary into some areas of questionable ethics and downright danger, under her parents€€™ very nose.
