Moriarty by Annelie Wendeberg

"...provocative and original..." Peter Kavanagh, CBC Radio Producer
"...the new dream team of detective literature." KrimiLese
"...a formidable dark-romantic conspiracy novel. A duel of two deduction monsters." Die Welt
"Best Sherlock Holmes Mystery 2014" German Sherlock Holmes Society


London 1889. A dead man is found floating in the city's waterworks. Fearing an epidemic, the Metropolitan Police call upon bacteriologist Dr Anton Kronberg to examine the body. All signs point toward cholera having killed the man...but for faint marks around wrists and ankles.

Evidence for a crime is weak, and the police lose interest in the case. But Kronberg suspects that the dead man's final days had been steeped in cruelty. Soon, a second victim is found, and Kronberg gets embroiled in a web of abduction, abuse, and murder.

But catching a killer and staying alive would be easier if the doctor didn't have secrets of...her own.


Warning: medical procedures are depicted without apology.
This bundle compiles the Anna Kronberg mysteries The Devil's Grin, The Fall, and The Journey.

I just finished the trilogy; I can't wait for the sequel!  There simply has got to be a sequel!!  I have read so many good books but with this trilogy I have read three great books!!! I had read all of  Arthur Conan Doyle's works on Sherlock Holmes, viewed many of the films made from his stories and these books by Annelie Wendeberg took Sherlock into uncharted waters and I was completely swept away!  Anyone   who disagrees can just, well, they must have a very short attention span!  There is so much going on within these pages that to try and   describe a plot outline would be meaningless.  If a reader is familiar with the work of ACD, they will relish each page written by Wendeberg. I was on the edge of my proverbial seat and felt like I was present with Anna as she fearlessly faced her challenges with gusto,   intelligence and supreme confidence in herself, her education and Sherlock.  The characterization of Sherlock was filled in to reveal a real living breathing person behind the Doyle character that earned my respect and I liked him.  I as a reader felt I had met all the characters within these books and I formed vivid opinions upon each of them as they were so clearly presented by the author; no one with a name was forgettable.  It was like reading in 3D!!!   Shall I mention a few highlights?  Anna's first meeting with Sherlock and how they clashed perhaps?  Or how they broke into an asylum to determine where a corpse found floating in the Thames might have come from?  Or how Anna became involved in "the Club"?   Maybe when Anna realized her true feelings for Sherlock?  Or about the hornet's nest?  There are so many twists and turns and these few highlights really don't do justice to the work as they are so much better written and in a more concise manner.  Thank goodness I purchased the 3-volumne set for my Nook; I would have been really mad at myself and I highly recommend this trilogy as opposed to buying them separately.  Do pick it up.  I believe you will enjoy it as much as I did.

I really enjoyed reading "Moriarty". Straight from the beginning, I was pretty much hooked. Anna, while she has her faults, is a very strong character. I was disappointed at times in the way that the author portrayed Holmes - but it was an interesting viewpoint on a familiar, and also flawed, literary character. Overall, I highly recommend the series. I was left wondering if there were more stories to come as Anna set off on a new chapter of her life....

Started off strong, but fizzled out to a very weak conclusion.  This is a 3-volume omnibus, comprising the trilogy.  The initial story was extremely entertaining, and the interactions between Anna and Sherlock was very crisp; the character profiling of Holmes was spot on as well.  But from there, the second volume took a rather unfortunate turn, and by the third volume, Moriarty was relegated to an extremely small role as the story became very bogged down.  I would have been happier reading just the first volume and making up my own version of the story from there.

Not only is this a well planned and executed twist on the Sherlockian canon, this is a very well written story. Anna is my new favorite female protagonist.
