Think you know the story of Moriarty? Think again. We welcome Graeme to the blog to tell us more about this incredible new novel and of course about the competition.
Does anyone really believe what happened at Reichenbach Falls?
So starts the first chapter of Anthony Horowitz’s fantastic new novel, Moriarty, set in the world created by Arthur Conan Doyle and it’s every bit as good as Horowitz’s last Holmes adventure, The House of Silk.
But you don’t have to rely on our say so, as we have one limited edition copy to give away. One of only a hundred, velvet bound, silver-foiled lettering, luxury end pages and signed, this is a great collector’s item for all you Holmes fans out there.
Want to know more about the book? See the blurb below:
Sherlock Holmes is dead.
Days after Holmes and his arch-enemy Moriarty fall to their doom at the Reichenbach Falls, Pinkerton agent Frederick Chase arrives in Europe from New York. The death of Moriarty has created a poisonous vacuum which has been swiftly filled by a fiendish new criminal mastermind who has risen to take his place.
Ably assisted by Inspector Athelney Jones of Scotland Yard, a devoted student of Holmes’s methods of investigation and deduction, Frederick Chase must forge a path through the darkest corners of the capital to shine light on this shadowy figure, a man much feared but seldom seen, a man determined to engulf London in a tide of murder and menace.
With pitch-perfect characterisation and breath-taking pace, Horowitz weaves a relentlessly thrilling tale which teases and delights by the turn of each page.
The game is afoot…
