Synopsis

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 from New York. The death of Moriarty has created a poisonous vacuum which has been swiftly filled by a fiendish new criminal mastermind. Ably assisted by Inspector Athelney Jones, a devoted student of Holmes's methods of investigation and deduction, Chase must hunt down 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 ...

Reviews

'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

'Though Horowitz dishes up the gore and violence with relish, he also offers all the tropes one might expect from a Holmes yarn, including baffling coded messages, impossible murders and clever red herrings... plotting is just as brilliantly gnarly [as THE HOUSE OF SILK] but its tone more self-aware and laced with in-jokes.' FINANCIAL TIMES

'His new novel, Moriarty, begins with a bravura dissection of Doyle's story The Final Problem in which he points out all the discrepancies, loose ends and improbabilities of behaviour. The remainder of the book is partly an ingenious exercise in explaining them away. ...An often excruciatingly exciting pursuit, and there is much casual slaughter, with hints of torture; nothing gratuitous but, as in The House of Silk, Horowitz's Victorian London is a much darker place than Doyle's.' DAILY TELEGRAPH
