With riches accumulated from an American crime spree, Professor Moriarty proceeds to annihilate his enemies. He murders the leaders of Europe's underworld one by one, then prepares his most hideous revenge for his arch-enemy, Sherlock Holmes. Will he succeed in this most terrible plan?
In this vivid, suspenseful novel of London underworld crime, John Gardner has created another brilliant novel in his acclaimed series pitting the Napoleon of Crime, James Moriarty, against mystery fiction's Great Detective, Sherlock Holmes.

The story seemed disjointed to me. In all fairness to John Gardner I may need to read it in print, as Robin Sach's performance was so monotone that I never finished the book.
Mr. Sach's was so monotone that I was afraid to listen in the car, as I may have fallen asleep driving.
I am an avid Sherlock Holmes fan. In that, I wanted to love this book. I couldn't finish it simply because of the voice actor. It was droll and lifeless. But I do not blame Mr. Sachs. It has to be the directors fault.
Yes, that might be better.
