Publisher's Summary

Professor James Moriarty has one desire left in his shattered life...revenge. 

All he wants is to shame the man who ruined him and stop the brute from harming anyone else. Then he meets amber-eyed Angelina Gould and his world turns upside down. 

An exploding steam engine kills a man at the International Exhibition. While Moriarty examines the wreckage, Sherlock Holmes appears, sent to investigate by Moriarty’s enemy. Holmes finds evidence that points at Moriarty, who realizes he must either solve the crime or swing it for it himself. He soon uncovers evidence of fraud and an unscrupulous company promoter. As he pursues those leads, he bumps into the alluring Angelina at every turn. She’s playing some game, but what’s her goal? And whose side is she on? 

Between them, Holmes and Angelina push Moriarty to his limits - and beyond. He’ll have to lose himself to save his life and win the woman he loves.

Great new series based on the Sherlock Holmes stories

Wow! A great new series. I was not sure what to expect but I loved it. Very ingenious to pair Moriarty and Holmes with an equally talented woman.

3.5 rounded up to 4 stars...

I've always loved Sherlock Holmes stories, with all the quirkiness of his character and the ominous presence of his arch-enemy, Professor Moriarty... And I've always liked books that take a well-known, well-liked tale and dance around it, twisting it, giving it a new perspective, altering the point of view - making it into something both familiar and yet completely different... So when I came across this book I thought, why not? It may be interesting... And generally it is but... Well, the "but" is difficult to explain. On the one hand, I love the character of Angelina Gould; she's amiable and gentle yet strong and surprising, with brilliant intelligence. Her quest to save her brother is I think the best part of the book, On the other hand, I really don't care much about Professor Moriarty - and I can't really put my finger on why... Supposedly he is very intelligent himself but somehow it doesn't show in his investigation. I had a feeling he is tossed from situation to situation without having much clue about what is going on and what to do next. His character doesn't feel real for me - the only parts I did believe in him were some of the scenes between him and Angelina, but not enough to warm me up to him... As for the plot, it generally is an intriguing murder/embezzlement investigation, although the pace is a bit uneven. Some parts definitely slow the book down and I had a feeling (not too often, luckily) that there was too much talking and too little action, especially in the middle of the story... But the ending definitely speeds us, with some quite well described action-packed scenes - this is what made me finally round up the rating to 4 stars:) The narration by Ms Smith is quite good, although some of the voices she gives the male characters sound really strange, unnatural. But overall the pace of her reading is good and there is a bit of good acting in the dialogues, so I'd say it's a very decent interpretation of the book.

Moriarty Meets His Match

The story started out a bit slow for me, but I stuck with it and soon found myself fully engaged. The unraveling of the mystery kept my interest, and I find myself curious to see where this series goes... especially with the little twist at the end! There is an error in the audio files. Chapter 39 seems to be missing. Chapter 38 is repeated, and then goes directly to Chapter 40. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

An Intriguing Twist.

I am a huge fan of the Sherlock Holmes novels and stories, therefore intrigued by this scenario. The crime novels central character is Professor James Moriarty and the mysterious Angelina Gould. Holmes and Watson and relegated to minor, though important characters. The writing is good and on the whole the conceit works. Both Moriarty and Gould are well developed and brought to life through excellent narration. The crime or crimes are intriguing and well portrayed. A very enjoyable novel.
