Description
Murder stalks the gaslit streets of 1887 London, in this second novel in Michael Kurland's delightful, Edgar Award–nominated series (following The Infernal Device). With a particular penchant for the aristocracy, a vicious killer is leaving lordly corpses behind locked doors, and high society is in an uproar. Even the great Sherlock Holmes is unable to bring the monster to justice, and Scotland Yard finally turns to the man whose connections to London's underworld are legendary, Professor Moriarty, ably assisted by American journalist Benjamin Barnett and the redoubtable Miss Cecily Perrine. But Moriarty has his own unique methods of fighting evil, and he and Holmes make for the most reluctant of allies. "Kurland has made Moriarty more interesting than Doyle ever made Holmes," noted Isaac Asimov of this brilliant, charming, resourceful, ambitious, and determined anti-hero. And though Holmes dubbed him "the Napoleon of crime," Moriarty himself 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.

"The atmosphere is perfect, and the gaslight of the title really pervades the whole story, creating a believable and enjoyable environment in which these heinous crimes and their unlikely hero play their parts. Excellent."—Books Monthly
