The Empress of India
A Professor Moriarty NovelBook - 2006
"England, 1890. A cargo ship, the Empress of India, is about to dock with a large shipment of gold. The arrival of this shipment has not been publicized, but somehow, the gold vanishes while the ship is still at sea. The British government turns to the one man they know can solve the crime: Sherlock Holmes. And the great detective soon surmises that only one villain is clever enough to pull off such a feat: Professor James Moriarty. But--and here comes the twist that will delight fans of Holmesian literature--Moriarty is innocent. Of course nobody believes him, so he decides to solve the crime himself and, soon enough, winds up face-to-face with a villain at least as fiendishly clever as he is. This is Kurland's fourth Moriarty novel, and the series is nowhere near wearing out its welcome. Readers unfamiliar with the world of Sherlock Holmes need not fear: the author avoids the overabundance of in-references that render some other Holmes-related fiction incomprehensible to the casual visitor."--Publisher.
