Sherlock Holmes never gets old, and the impulse to add to the canon doesn't either. This book does not feature Holmes as a character, but is about a Scotland Yard detective and a Pinkerton man from Amercia who are following up on the disappearance of Holmes and Moriarty at Reichenbach Falls. Did they really die? Horowitz is a great thriller writer, and has finished this one with a delicious twist.

Well done. Sherlock fans will definitely enjoy this one -- a chance to learn a little more about Professor Moriarty and that incident at Reichenbach Falls. A couple of nitpicks: First, on the audiobook version, the reader's voice is indistinct, a little difficult to understand. I followed along w/a printed copy. Second, there's a couple of holes in the plot. Things fall through the cracks that would be difficult to imagine an experienced Scotland Yard inspector would allow. Be prepared to suspend disbelief once or twice to fully enjoy the story. With those caveats, this book is a winner. Very much recommended.
