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, which explores what really happened when Sherlock Holmes and his arch nemesis Professor Moriarty tumbled to their doom at the Reichenbach Falls. 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’s 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 one of the only writers to earn the seal of approval from Conan Doyle’s estate, Moriarty breathes life into Holmes’s dark and fascinating world.

Professor James Moriarty, prominent scientist, keen analytical mind, and a dabbler in less than savoury doings, is somewhat surprised when an unknown caller is shot by a crossbow bolt on his doorstep. Meanwhile the Professor's one-time associates, the journalist Benjamin Barnett and his wife, the former Cecily Perrine, are having their own troubles on the Continent. Things turn deadly when they find themselves in the midst of an attempted assassination of a German prince, and in Vienna, the younger son of a British nobleman—indulging in “The Great Game” of amateur spying—finds himself framed for the murder of his paramour and the assassination of an Austrian Duke. While a lesser man might be daunted, Moriarty is merely intrigued. With the unwanted help of his often nemesis Sherlock Holmes, Moriarty must connect the many threads of the mystery. But he is facing his most cunning opponent to date, and this is no game...

“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...

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
