Exit Sherlock Holmes


Author: Robert Lee Hall
Ever wondered just what was the relationship between Holmes and Moriarty? Why no one has ever seen the two of them together? Well, here's your answer. As Moriarty himself puts it: 'We are closer than brothers - and further apart than any two beings can be.' This non-Doyle pastiche continues the Sherlock Holmes tradition as the reader, following crumbs left by Dr. Watson in bequest, is led to Sherlock's brother Mycroft, past 221B Baker Street, and through the enigmatic Diogenes Club to ultimately view the inevitable showdown between Holmes and Moriarty that reveals their true identities and the underlying meaning of their lifelong duel.
