Dead Man’s Switch
Sherlock is an ass, Alfredo and his trucker hat shows up and a professional blackmailer named Charles Augustus Milverton blackmails. But Milverton had a lot of helpers and Sherlock must find them. Gregson is the only cop in NY.

Six weeks have passed. Jack is Conrad’s working class advisor. Conrad is an idiot. Daniel is an idiot. Emily has uncovered another of Victoria’s dark secrets. The frozen faced Trask does stuff. Aiden bores. Padma is dead. Nolan cracks up. I care not.
Victoria throws another lavish party. There is bad acting. Who is this Regina chick that Charlotte punches? There is blaring opera and Victoria faints into Aiden’s arms. Aiden gets up on his high horse. Jack tries to make an alliance. There is overacting, nuns and this was an overwrought bore.

“He’s at the bottom of the East River.”
“Little sisters who love their heroin.”
“Every opera needs its phantom.”
