Moriarty by John Gardner
Can Moriarty ever be defeated?
It is the turn of the century and, having survived the struggle with Sherlock Holmes at the Reichenbach Falls, Professor James Moriarty is about to realise his plans to establish crime syndicates in the major cities of the United States.
But suddenly he is called back to London, where his vast criminal society has been overrun by a rival: the shadowy Sir Jack Idell—or Idle Jack—a supposed gentleman hoodlum acting on behalf of criminal elements in France, Italy, Spain, and Germany.
As Moriarty fights back—against both unruly crime families and the forces of law and order—readers are thrown in among the lurkers, punishers, cracksmen, and the professor’s elite guard. In Moriarty the mastermind lives again and revolts against those who attempt to oust him from his rightful place as the Napoleon of Crime.
This is the third thrilling novel in John Gardner’s bestselling James Moriarty saga.
Thriller writer John Gardner (1926-2007) had fifty-five books to his credit when he passed away, many of them bestsellers, which include his James Moriarty novels and fourteen James Bond novels.
