While Holmes is away, the mice will play

In the year 1891, Sherlock Holmes and his arch rival, the criminal mastermind James Moriarty, both famously fell from the Reichenbach Falls to their deaths. Of course author Arthur Conan Doyle later brought his consulting detective back to life because of fan pressure.

But what evil occurred while Holmes was playing possum? Moriarty was also still alive, after all. And author Anthony Horowitz tackles that question in his book, titled simply Moriarty (and filed in Adult Fiction).

The tale is narrated by a Pinkerton’s gumshoe. An American crime lord is seeking to expand his reach to the UK. Once arrived, Mr. Pinkerton becomes a Dr. John Watson of sorts, a sidekick to a Scotland Yard inspector who’s come to see Holmes as a role model.

What wickedness this way comes? Moriarty lays it all out, and it’s a fun romp.
