The game is once again afoot in this thrilling mystery from
the bestselling author of The House of
Silk, sanctioned by the Conan Doyle estate.
Internationally bestselling author Anthony Horowitz’s
nail-biting new novel plunges us back into the dark and complex world of
detective Sherlock Holmes and Moriarty—dubbed the Napoleon of crime” by
Holmes—in the aftermath of their fateful struggle at the Reichenbach Falls.
Days after the encounter at the Swiss waterfall, Pinkerton
detective agent Frederick Chase arrives in Europe from New York. Moriarty’s
death has left an immediate, poisonous vacuum in the criminal underworld, and
there is no shortage of candidates to take his place—including one particularly
fiendish criminal mastermind.
Chase and Scotland Yard Inspector Athelney Jones, a devoted
student of Holmes’ methods of investigation and deduction originally introduced
by Conan Doyle in The Sign of Four,
must forge a path through the darkest corners of England’s capital—from the
elegant squares of Mayfair to the shadowy wharfs and alleyways of the London
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.
A riveting, deeply atmospheric tale of murder and menace
from the only writer to earn the seal of approval from Conan Doyle’s estate, Moriarty breathes life into Holmes’ dark
and fascinating world. Download and start listening now!
