Author of the global bestseller The House of Silk, Anthony Horowitz once more breathes life into the world created by Arthur Conan Doyle. With pitch-perfect characterisation and breathtaking pace, Horowitz weaves a relentlessly thrilling tale which teases and delights by the turn of each page. The game is afoot... ~ Sarah Broadhurst

Moriarty by Anthony Horowitz

Sherlock Holmes is dead. Days after Holmes and his arch-enemy Moriarty fall to their doom at the Reichenbach Falls, Pinkerton agent Frederick Chase arrives in Europe from New York. The death of Moriarty has created a poisonous vacuum which has been swiftly filled by a fiendish new criminal mastermind who has risen to take his place. Ably assisted by Inspector Athelney Jones of Scotland Yard, a devoted student of Holmes's methods of investigation and deduction, Frederick Chase must forge a path through the darkest corners of the capital to shine light on this shadowy figure, a man much feared but seldom seen, a man determined to engulf London in a tide of murder and menace. The game is afoot...


'Thrilling and compelling, with a stunning twist, this is written as if Conan Doyle were at Horowitz's shoulder, and is - in my view - the finest crime novel of the year.' DAILY MAIL

'Is there nothing Anthony Horowitz touches that doesn't turn to gold? ...He captures Conan Doyle's narrative technique to perfection. Gory murders, honest thieves, brilliant disguises, breathless chases and red herrings abound' DAILY EXPRESS

'A relentlessly fast-paced and entertaining read' SUNDAY TIMES

'An unpredictable and twist-filled mystery from start to finish. But what do you expect from the man penning the next James Bond novel?' SHORTLIST

'I hope it won't be the last of Horowitz Holmes novels: should he publish another, I will be at the front of the queue.' SPECTATOR
