Moriarty by Anthony Horowitz

posted Jun 2, 2015, 10:45 PM by

I have just finished reading Moriarty by Anthony Horowitz, a brand new addition to the library collection. Having an appetite for crime and mystery, and as a fan of all things Sherlock Holmes, the title ‘Moriarty’ had me intrigued instantly; any self-respecting Sherlock Holmes enthusiast knows the name of Holmes’ arch nemesis.

This book had me thinking, right from the start. As I tried to solve the puzzles as they appeared, often without success; as the end of the book drew closer, I was sure I had it solved. I knew (without a doubt, I might add), the twist to this story AND the truth behind Holmes and the enigma that was Moriarty. Well now I can confess that although I was on the right track, I couldn’t have been more wrong. And as for Sherlock Holmes? …. Well he’s dead……

This book, at 310 pages, is quite a comfortable read. The chapters aren’t too long, meaning that if you want to read a chapter before bed (as I did), it isn’t going to send you to sleep. But on the flip side, it also means you don’t have to stop at one either J
