follow on, Horowitz takes up the Conan Doyle baton and creates a suitably stylish and twisty detective story." SUNDAY MIRROR THE HOUSE OF SILK, was very popular and a solid piece of work - well constructed, skilfully executed and persuasively tinged with that alluring sooty flavour of 1890s London. His second, MORIARTY, is much the same, but bolder in its ambitions GUARDIAN "The plot is gripping and the writing most readable. In fact I must make a confession: I would rather read Horowitz than his model, Arthur Conan Doyle." LITERARY REVIEW A no-nonsense writer Horowitz proceeds briskly and ladles out spills and thrills with aplomb. Yet, the novel is terribly serious too - the author evokes a sombre atmosphere early on and thereafter cannot seem to shake it. This is a worthy addition to the store of Holmes fan-fic - but not be quite the romp you expected. IRISH INDEPENDENT "Ultimately, Moriarty has its cake by playfully re-creating the Sherlock Holmes persona and eats it by poking gentle fun at his methodology - and, by extension, his enduring appeal...Anthony Horowitz may not be the most reverential of the many writers who have attempted to breathe new life into the legacy of Sherlock Holmes, but Moriarty proves that he is certainly one of the most entertaining". IRISH TIMES An exhilarating page-turner SUNDAY POST "Horowitz weaves this mystery together perfectly and his plot twists are unpredictable until the last." NEWCASTLE JOURNAL "A page-turner that is exhilarating and infuriating in equal measure." EDINBURGH EVENING NEWS "Fans of Arthur Conan Doyle's London will surely adore this fine addition to the literature, being fast-paced but at this same time fully stocked with proper 'fair-play' clues." MORNING STAR "Horowitz weaves a relentlessly thrilling tale which teases and delights by the turn of each page." WESTERN MAIL "[It's] like Holmes under the influence of Ripper Street and Peaky Blinders... Holmes fans will love the theorising and super-smart twists in this deft and showy work of fandom." GLASGOW HERALD "It's a seamless blend of old friends and new characters. Classic Holmes with a contemporary gloss." SAGA "A cunningly contrived story that takes readers through many twists and turns." BBC HISTORY
