Die Londoner Unterwelt ist in Aufruhr: Der gefürchtete amerikanische Gangster Clarence Devereux will seine Geschäfte nach England ausdehnen. Auch Professor Moriarty soll seine Hände im Spiel haben – aber ist er nicht, ebenso wie Sherlock Holmes, an den Reichenbachfällen in den Tod gestürzt? Und welche Rolle spielt der undurchsichtige Detektiv Chase, der plötzlich in London auftaucht? Als der Machtkampf der Giganten des Verbrechens seine Opfer fordert und eine grausam zugerichtete Leiche gefunden wird, macht sich Inspector Jones von Scotland Yard daran, die Machenschaften des Amerikaners aufzudecken. Eine blutige Spur führt von den Docks bis in die Katakomben des Smithfield Meat Market. Kann es sein, dass Moriarty noch lebt? Ganz in der Tradition seines Sherlock-Holmes-Romans Das Geheimnis des weißen Bandes schickt Anthony Horowitz erneut die Ermittler von Scotland Yard auf Verbrecherjagd – und Athelney Jones beweist, dass er Sherlock Holmes ein würdiger Nachfolger ist.

Bestselling British novelist John Gardner published two books purporting to be the true history of Professor James Moriarty, archenemy of Sherlock Holmes, the Napoleon of crime. The books - The Return of Moriarty and The Revenge of Moriarty - were praised as stand-alone volumes set in a vividly accurate Victorian London and a stunning vision of the underworld of the time, inhabited by the kind of men and women who lived and preyed on the society of the late 19th century. Now it is the turn of the century and Moriarty has been away from London for several years, realizing his plans to set up crime syndicates in major U. S. cities. He is suddenly called back to London where his vast criminal society has been overrun by a rival concern led by the shadowy Sir Jordan 'Mad Jack' de Levant - a supposed gentleman hoodlum who is acting on behalf of the leaders of well-known criminal elements in France, Italy, Spain and Germany. Moriarty lives again and revolts against the upstart criminals who have attempted to oust him from his rightful place as king of all criminal endeavour.

"Alle Verbrechen, die Sherlock Holmes, dieser Langweiler, je untersucht hat, sind MEIN Werk." Professor Moriarty Viele Jahre hat Sherlock Holmes seinen Freund Watson und die Öffentlichkeit über die Bedeutung seines wichtigsten Gegenspielers in die Irre geführt - jetzt erfahren wir aus den Unterlagen von Professor Moriarty, warum auch Holmes' Genie eine Lüge ist. Die Anhänger des ach so genialen Sherlock Holmes haben es schon immer befürchtet, seine Gegner immer geahnt: Fast alle Verbrechen, die Holmes je untersucht hat, gehen auf das Konto eines einzigen genialen Gegenspielers: Professor James Moriarty. Mehr noch: Ein enger Vertrauter hat den Nachlass des unter mysteriösen Umständen getöteten Moriarty gesichtet und zeigt in schockierender Direktheit, dass Holmes nicht mehr war als eine traurige Marionette in den Händen eines Mannes, der seine wahre Rolle stets zu verbergen wusste. Moriarty war das Genie hinter den Kulissen in "Tal der Angst", der Napoleon des Verbrechens in "Das letzte Problem" und die dunkle Macht in "Das leere Haus".

Since their original appearanc more than two decades ago, Michael Kurland's two novels feature Professor James Moriarty--The Infernal Device and Death by Gaslight--have been among the most acclaimed of the works based on the characters first introduced by Authur Conan Doyle. In Doyle's original stories, Professor Moriarty is the bete noire of Sherlock Holmes, who deems the professor his mental equivalent and ethical opposite, declares him "the Napoleon of Crime, " and wrestles him seemingly to their mutual deaths at Reichenbach Falls. But indeed there are two sides to every story, and while Moriarty may not always tread strictly on the side of the law, he is also, in these novels, not quite about the person that Holmes and Watson made him out to be. In Kurland's fictions about Moriarty, the truth is finally revealed: The Infernal Device--A dangerous adversary seeking to topple the British monarchy places Moriarty in mortal jeopardy, forcing him to collaborate with his nemesis Sherlock Holmes. Death by Gaslight--A serial killer is stalking the cream o England's aristocracy, baffling both the police and Sherlock Holmes and leaving the powers in charge to play one last desperate card: Professor Moriarty. The Paradol Paradox--The first new Moriarty story in almost twenty years, it has never before appeared in print. Brilliantly and vividly evoking late Victorian England in all its facets, this first-ever omnibus of the adventures of Proefssor James Moriarty will delight longtime fans as well as readers new to the milieu.

Written and extensively class tested with NSF/NIH support, this timely and useful text addresses a crucial need which is acknowledged in most universities and colleges. It is the need for students to learn to write in the context of their field of study; in this case science. Although numerous "how to" writing books have been published, few, if any, address the central pedagogical issues underlying the process of learning to think and write scientifically. The direct connection between this writing skill and that of critical thinking is developed with engaging style by the author, an English professor. Moriarty's book is an invaluable guide for both undergraduate and graduate science students. In the process of learning the specific requirements of organization demanded by scientific writing, students will develop strategies for thinking through their scientific research, well before they sit down to write. This instructive text will be useful to students who need to satisfy a science writing proficiency requirement in the context of a science course, a course in technical writing, advanced composition, or writing for the profession.

In London, 1892, a well-guarded young nobleman goes missing under distressing circumstances. The nobleman, one Baron Renfrew, is actually Prince Albert Victor, eldest grandson of Queen Victoria. He disappeared while he was visiting a house of ill repute, with bodyguards both inside and outside the building—with his inside bodyguard rendered unconscious and the trussed-up corpse of a brutally murdered young woman left behind. Hoping to find the missing Prince and to clear him of the murder, the royal family is looking for a brilliant—and, more importantly, discreet—investigator. Sherlock Holmes, alas, is out of the country so, at the suggestion of his brother Mycroft, they turn to the only man who just might be more brilliant—Dr. James Moriarty. Moriarty, at the time, is up on charges of murder, awaiting retrial after his first jury was hung. In exchange for his release and the murder charges (of which he's innocent), the so-called "Napoleon of Crime" will use all his resources to track down the missing prince and find out who is behind his disappearance and the brutal murders left in his wake. He soon finds that someone out there is laying a trail, setting up Moriarty himself to take the fall for the crimes. If the real Moriarty doesn't manage to unravel and foil this plot soon, he may never again draw another free breath. Who Thinks Evil is the fifth Professor Moriarty novel from Michael Kurland.
