"Days after the encounter at the Swiss waterfall, Pinkerton detective agent Frederick Chase arrives in Europe from New York. Moriarty's death has left an immediate, poisonous vacuum in the criminal underworld, and there is no shortage of candidates to take his place--including one particularly fiendish criminal mastermind. Chase and Scotland Yard Inspector Athelney Jones, a devoted student of Holmes' methods of investigation and deduction originally introduced by Conan Doyle in The Sign of Four, must forge a path through the darkest corners of England's capital--from the elegant squares of Mayfair to the shadowy wharfs and alleyways of the London Docks--in pursuit of this sinister figure, a man much feared but seldom seen, who is determined to stake his claim as Moriarty's successor" -- from publisher's web site.

Sherlock Holmes never gets old, and the impulse to add to the canon doesn't either. This book does not feature Holmes as a character, but is about a Scotland Yard detective and a Pinkerton man from Amercia who are following up on the disappearance of Holmes and Moriarty at Reichenbach Falls. Did they really die? Horowitz is a great thriller writer, and has finished this one with a delicious twist.

Well done. Sherlock fans will definitely enjoy this one -- a chance to learn a little more about Professor Moriarty and that incident at Reichenbach Falls. A couple of nitpicks: First, on the audiobook version, the reader's voice is indistinct, a little difficult to understand. I followed along w/a printed copy. Second, there's a couple of holes in the plot. Things fall through the cracks that would be difficult to imagine an experienced Scotland Yard inspector would allow. Be prepared to suspend disbelief once or twice to fully enjoy the story. With those caveats, this book is a winner. Very much recommended.
