    keeps up with the original

    A well-done look at the Sherlock Holmes / James Moriarty conflict from the point of view of a deeply involved third party. It's been decades since I read the Conan-Doyle original Sherlock Holmes stories (which I really enjoyed), and Wendeberg's writing brought back all the best of it. The characters are well drawn, the period is nicely and convincingly evoked, and the action and plotting are tight and engaging. I read the trilogy over a few days, without my usual need to jump to some other, unrelated book for a "rest". Kept me turning pages until my wife got grumpy "Turn that thing off, and go to sleep!" :-) It would not be much of a compliment to say it was well worth the money, since it was a Bookbub deal. More to the point, it was well worth my time, which is a much more important commodity. You won't go wrong. Recommended.

    Moriarty

    Very enjoyable although some words were to modern giving the book a feeling of being recently written but obviously a period drama.

    True to original

    Very well woven with the original Holmes stories. Breathes new life into the character of Moriarty.
