Moriarty | Anthony Horowitz

Horowitz is the only writer authorized by Doyle's estate to write novels regarding Sherlock Holmes. The two main characters, Frederick Chase and Athelney Jones (seen in Doyle's “The Adventure of the Six Napoleons“) play out the archetypal roles of Holmes and Watson as they trail a criminal who is now in London attempting to take over Moriarty's territory after his supposed death by Holmes in the fight over the Reichenbach Falls. Fun for SH fans.

As a self-professed Sherlock maniac, I've read many pastiches in many anthologies, but I had never read an entire novel (except the four in the original canon). I was engulfed in this romp that almost bordered on comedy in some scenes. Having Meyer be the “editor“ is another genius touch--similar to Doyle being the publisher of the “real“ adventures of Holmes as chronicled by Watson.

136/150 As someone who grew up on the Basil Rathbone/Nigel Bruce versions of Holmes & Watson, I found this novel to be a real treat. Its London, 1942, and a new Ripper is loose, attacking women during the Blackout. Of course, Sherlock is enlisted to find the killer. You know he's going to figure it out, but it's fun to play along with the twists and turns of the story. 4 ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 1/2

I was struggling with #pop22 #characterontheacespectrum so researched characters last night. Benedict Cumberbatch says that in the BBC version Sherlock is asexual, so going with it even though I ship Johnlock.

Straightforward 1970s non-canonical Holmes. The story itself is closer to a novella, but multiple framing devices establishing the game make it longer. Read in a day as it was so light.

Read several more stories in this doorstop of a book plus a few magazines for last weekend's #20in4 #readathon. Still not finished yet! I'll keep plugging along reading a story or two here and there between my other book and magazine reads.
