“Kurland has made Moriarty more interesting than Doyle ever made Holmes.” Isaac Asimov London, 1887, and a vicious killer stalks the gas-lit streets of the capital. With a particular penchant for the blue-blooded aristocracy, he is leaving lordly corpses behind locked doors, and high society is in uproar. Scotland Yard call in the great Sherlock Holmes to hunt down the murderer, but even he is unable to bring the monster to justice. Several more noble throats are slit before the Yard turn to the one man who might be able to solve the bloody crimes: the Napoleon of Crime, Professor James Moriarty, ably assisted by American journalist Benjamin Barker, and the redoubtable Miss Cecily Perrine. However, Moriarty has his own unique methods of fighting evil, and he and Sherlock Holmes make for the most reluctant of allies… PRAISE FOR THE MORIARTY NOVELS “A deliciously complex and abundantly rewarding novel… Uncommon are the pleasures such writing affords.” Publishers Weekly “From whatever celestial outpost he now occupies, Conan Doyle must be beaming his approval.” West Coast Review of Books “Sherlock Holmes' most clever adversary… He's a fine sleuth and makes for a compelling protagonist. Splendid stuff.” Booklist
