MORIARTY - Anthony Horowitz
Authorized by the Doyle Estate, Horowitz has written a novel containing Doyle's characters but from a different perspective.
Its very hard to describe the mystery without spoiling it , so I won't even try.
There several written like this lately, Ian Fleming's estate has been getting guest writers in, some good and some bad, The trouble with this is not the style of writing but its the story. Its a weak story and anyone with an IQ above room temperature will solve the crime very early and from there its just a matter of how long it will be drawn.
Horowitz first Holmes story " The House of Silk" was very good and disturbing, this just doesn't work.
