Riptides

Riptides cover

Riptides is a fanfic crossover between the Lord Peter Wimsey novels of Dorothy L. Sayers and the Marlows books by Antonia Forest, and also borrows the character of Sophie Dixon from The Jewel in The Crown; in the 1984 film series he was played by Warren Clarke, who then went on to play DS Andy Dalziel.

Nicola Marlow, at Oxford, finds old ghosts intruding. But a chance encounter in a pub shows her that ghosts may, perhaps, be shared, and so halved.

Warnings: The author chooses not to warn.
