'He is the Napoleon of Crime...He is the organiser of half that is evil and of nearly all that is undetected in this great city'.

A man like Sherlock Holmes has many enemies. Violent murderers, deviant villains, ghosts of old loves, blackmailers and poisonous scribes, to to name but a few. But none are so deadly, so powerful, as Professor Moriarty. Moriarty - the only man who can compete with Holmes' genius. The only man who can, perhaps, ultimately defeat the great detective ...

This collection of gripping cases culminates in the most shocking of all, 'The Final Problem', featuring the notorious, fatal encounter at the Reichenbach falls. --back cover

I often pick up A Sherlock book when I'm on the go and need a book to read on my Kindle App. They're easy and entertaining reads, and the short stories are good because I find it hard to read more than one in a sitting. This is the case with most short stories, but especially with mysteries. Either way, this was an enjoyable book.
