Summary

Internationally bestselling author Anthony Horowitz's nail-biting new novel plunges us back into the dark and complex world of Detective Sherlock Holmes and Professor James Moriarty--dubbed "the Napoleon of crime"--in the aftermath of their fateful struggle at the Reichenbach Falls.

Days after Holmes and Moriarty disappear into the waterfall's churning depths, Frederick Chase, a senior investigator at New York's infamous Pinkerton Detective Agency, arrives in Switzerland. Chase brings with him a dire warning: Moriarty's death has left a convenient vacancy in London's criminal underworld. There is no shortage of candidates to take his place--including one particularly fiendish criminal mastermind.

Chase is assisted by Inspector Athelney Jones, a Scotland Yard detective and devoted student of Holmes's methods of deduction, whom Conan Doyle introduced in The Sign of Four. The two men join forces and fight their way through the sinuous streets of Victorian London--from the elegant squares of Mayfair to the shadowy wharfs and alleyways of the Docks--in pursuit of this sinister figure, a man much feared but seldom seen, who is determined to stake his claim as Moriarty's successor.

Riveting and deeply atmospheric, Moriarty is the first Sherlock Holmes novel sanctioned by the author's estate since Horowitz's House of Silk. This tale of murder and menace breathes life into Holmes's fascinating world, again proving that once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however im- probable, must be the truth.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Horowitz is the fellow who gave us the wonderful Foyle's War on PBS and maybe the best Holmes pastiche ever, The House of Silk (2011). Now he's done it again, with a stunning riff on the Holmes-Moriarty clash. It's full of allusions to the Holmes canon that Sherlockians will congratulate themselves for spotting, then wince moments later when Horowitz gently reveals the prank. The hero here introduces himself as Frederick Chase, a Pinkerton agent sent from the U.S. to sort out Moriarty's gang. He partners with Scotland Yard Inspector Athelney Jones, whom Holmes walked over in The Sign of Four. The experience addled Jones, who has made himself a wannabe, breaking codes and analyzing writing and struggling to be a master of disguises. Horowitz spins his tale in pitch-perfect Watsonian prose, easy and flowing, setting readers up for a finale that is truly jaw-dropping. A few pages at the end let us know how the con was worked on us, and that's fun, too, but it takes a while before the shakes go away.--Crinklaw, Don Copyright 2014 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this disappointing follow-up to Horowitz's brilliant first Holmes pastiche, The House of Silk (2011), Sherlock Holmes appears only in passing, in a prologue in which narrator Frederick Chase, a Pinkerton operative, details the plot holes in Watson's account of the fatal encounter between the great detective and the Napoleon of crime at the Reichenbach Falls in 1891. Chase is on the trail of Clarence Devereux, an American Moriarty, when news reaches him of the tragedy in Switzerland. Chase believes that Moriarty and Devereux had been in contact, and he travels immediately to Meiringen, where he winds up teaming with Scotland Yard's Insp. Athelney Jones, who displays an unexpected gift for Sherlockian deduction. After decoding a message setting a meeting between Moriarty and Devereux at London's Café Royal, Chase plans to impersonate the master criminal. As a pair, Jones and Chase are but a pale shadow of Holmes and Watson. Agent: Jonathan Lloyd, Curtis Brown (U.K.). (Dec.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
