Description
(Edgar Award nominee) Sent to Constantinople in 1885 to report on the sea trials of a newly invented submarine, American journalist Benjamin Barnett is soon in over his head, as he witnesses the sub's destruction, defends a certain professor from a gang of toughs, and is arrested for the murder of a British spy. But the professor, one James Moriarty by name, comes to Benjamin's aid, arranging for his official "death" and transporting him to safety in London. In return, Benjamin will work for him for two years, assisting Moriarty as he carries out a clandestine operation for the Russian government—while helping him to avoid the persistent meddling of a detective named Holmes. In this first mystery of Michael Kurland's delightful series we meet the real Professor Moriarty: brilliant, charming, resourceful, ambitious, and determined. And though Sherlock Holmes dubbed him "the Napoleon of crime," Moriarty is as likely to call his more famous nemesis "the Javert of busybodies," while slipping back and forth across the line of criminality in pursuit of his own enigmatic agenda.

"Michael Kurland has made Moriarty more interesting than Doyle ever made Holmes."—Isaac Asimov
