Author's Summary: Phillip Coulson, the famous detective, strode through the revolving doors of the Savoy Hotel just before seven in the evening. When Phil walked up to the reception, the clerk behind the desk smiled warmly in greeting. “It is a pleasure to see you again, Mr Coulson,” he said. “How may I help you this evening?”

When tragedy strikes at the Savoy Hotel, a beautiful socialite is found dead in her room. Her prized possesion, the Blue Star Diamond is stolen amongst the chaos. Detective Inspector Sitwell of Scotland Yard calls on the famous detective Phillip Coulson for help on the case.

Except nothing is quite what it seems and Phil must decide whether he can trust the help of the infamous scoundrel Clint Barton as they sift through intrigue, scandal and secrets to solve the MURDER AT THE SAVOY HOTEL.

Why I Loved It: LOOKIT THAT SUMMARY. It's a 30s Christie-esque AU with murder and mystery and stolen gemstones. WHY WOULD I NOT LOVE IT? WHY WOULD ANYONE NOT LOVE IT?!

Augh, you guys, it's just so well-plotted and the romance is sweet and bits of canon are slotted in beautifully. I keep thinking OH AND THAT CHARACTER, I LOVED THEM TOO, about, f'rinstance, Bucky, or Pepper, or Bruce. I must make a special mention of the scenes with Clint and Natasha. Wonderfully done, and paints their relationship as a family of choice in a really lovely, convincing way, without overlong trips to the department of backstory.

Best part! It's the first part of a series! There isn't any more yet, but I swear I haven't hit the subscribe button on AO3 so fast for a long time.

spoiler alert: this will not be the only Christie-esque fic I rec on this list. Fandom is a wonderful thing.
