Moriarty by John Gardner is a 300-page hardcover published in 2008 by Harcourt, Inc. There is light surface rubbing and small crease to the dust jacket. Else, little to no indication of prior use.
It is the turn of the century and, having survived the struggle with Sherlock Holmes at the Reichenbach Falls, Professor James Moriarty is alive and well and about top realize his plans to establish crime syndicates in the major cities of the United States. But suddenly he is called back to London, where his vast criminal society has been overrun by a rival concern led by the shadowy Sir Jack Idell--or Idle Jack--a supposed gentleman hoodlum acting on behalf of criminal elements in France, Italy, Spain, and Germany.
As Moriarty fights back--against both the unruly crime families and the forces of law and order--readers are thrown in among the lurkers, punishers, dippers, cracksmen, and the professor's elite guard.
Moriarty lives again and revolts against those who attempt to oust him from his rightful place as the Napoleon of crime.
