Mycroft needs someone intelligent and capable to find the Prince, so Moriarty is bailed out to assist the British Government. Moriarty as detective A favourite whore of Prince Albert Victor has been slaughtered and the prince has gone missing from the brothel. Moriarty as detective works really well. The character has an acidic sense of humour and the plot is intricate and interesting. Highly recommended for all Sherlockians and anyone interested in historical crime.

Kurland makes Moriarity into a good guy in this series. Interesting but really a take-off on Arthur Conan Doyle. Thoroughly enjoyable Are we to take the evaluation of Sherlock Holmes, who categorized Moriarty as London's most evil criminal, at face value? Scarcely aware of the roughness of his gray prison garb, the damp chill of his cell, or the shackles on his hands, he mentally roamed the vast space between the stars, considering what the spectra of certain nebulosities indicated about their composition and structure — a problem he had been wrestling with for some years.
Someone acquainted within the unseen worlds of mendacity, deceit, treachery, and falsehood that lurk in the corners of the realm.

Someone who can travel about freely in the underworld of the illegal and the illicit, and who is trusted by men who trust no one. But is it a feint, or a feint within a feint? Enter the Professor, who immediately sets about tracing the missing royal and soon uncovers of a far more sinister plot than he at first imagined — one directed at himself.
The gore of the crimes and their impacts on the emotions of the well-drawn primary and secondary characters who discover them are vividly but never solemnly rendered; both the British government and Moriarty himself have some very serious things at stake as the murders pile up. Those five decades have seen a vast number of terrible Holmes pastiche novels and a small handful of good ones Donald Thomas comes right to mind as an example of the latter.
