NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
What happened after Sherlock Holmes and Professor Moriarty went over the Reichenbach Falls? Bestselling author Anthony Horowitz (creator of TV’s Foyle’s War and Midsomer Murders) once again takes on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in this razor-sharp thriller
“Anything but elementary, this clever thriller is sure to please.” —People
“Infernally clever.” —The New York Times Book Review
Sherlock Holmes is dead.
Days after Holmes and his arch-enemy Professor James Moriarty fall to their doom at the Reichenbach Falls, Pinkerton agent Frederick Chase arrives from New York. The death of Moriarty has created a poisonous vacuum that has been swiftly filled by a fiendish new criminal mastermind. Ably assisted by Inspector Athelney Jones, a devoted student of Holmes’s methods of investigation and deduction, Chase must hunt down this shadowy figure, a man much feared but seldom seen, a man determined to engulf London in a tide of murder and menace.
The game is afoot . . .
Award-winning TV screenwriter Anthony Horowitz takes up Conan Doyle’s mantle once more in this riveting and deeply atmospheric tale—sanctioned by the author’s estate—that breathes life into Holmes’s world, again proving that once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.
