Moriarty: The Hound of the D'Urbervilles, by Kim Newman

Professor Moriarty and Basher Moran: if Sir Arthur Conan Doyle had loved the bad guys more.


Moriarty: The Hound of the D'Urbervilles

Titan Books, 2011, 476 pages



Imagine the twisted evil twins of Holmes and Watson and you have the dangerous duo of Prof. James Moriarty - wily, snake-like, fiercely intelligent, unpredictable - and Colonel Sebastian 'Basher' Moran - violent,politically incorrect, debauched. Together they run London crime, owning police and criminals alike. Unravelling mysteries -- all for their own gain.

A spin-off from Titan's highly successful Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes series, The Hound of the D'Urbervilles sees acclaimed novelist Kim Newman (Anno Dracula) take on the fiendish Professor Moriarty.


Moriarty smiled his adder's smile. And I relaxed. I knew. My destiny and his wound together. It was a sensation I'd never got before upon meeting a man. When I'd had it from women, the upshot ranged from disappointment to attempted murder.
