The secret life of Sherlock Holmes's nemesis, Moriarty ... This wonderfully diverse collection by writers such as Martin Edwards, Jurgen Ehlers, Barbara Nadel, L. C. Tyler, Michael Gregorio, Alison Joseph and Peter Guttridge reveals not just the evil side of Moriarty's personality, but his humanity, his motivations and his human failings. Some of the stories are humorous, some scary, but all are hugely entertaining.

Synopsis

The Mammoth Book of the Adventures of Moriarty The Secret Life of Sherlock Holmes's Nemesis - 37 Short Stories by Maxim Jakubowski

We think of Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson, but far more seductive is the pairing of Holmes and Professor James Moriarty, 'the Napoleon of crime' - a rivalry unparalleled in the world of crime fiction. Fiercely intelligent and a relentless schemer, Moriarty is the super-villain as megastar.
