    1 thought on “The Empress of India

    1. The book was amazing Michael Kurland brings Moriarity in such a detail that you often pause and wonder, if only Sherlock Holmes had these details in the original.

    2. I started reading this novel and seriously considered not finishing it That is until the plot revved up and the humor kicked in Kurland came up with a fantastic plot involving the Empress of India and a large shipment of gold bars headed for the Bank of England The main character is James Moriarty, nemesis of Sherlock Holmes who has been hired to protect the gold The year is 1890 and the setting is Calcutta, India where the gold is loaded on the voyage to England Holmes disappears and Moriarty r [...]

    3. Involving quite a few logical loopholes and substantial no of occasions where the reader is practically requested to suspend his her disbelief, the story races ahead, nevertheless, to its climax The best parts are those where our heroine oh yes, we do have one is allowed to display her wit strength, combined with similar traits displayed by other charming characters no shortage there either, believe me The Professor is of course there, and so is Holmes at his annoying best But the novel is reada [...]

    4. A fun read with an entertaining plot and rather good prose, but I had some difficulties the dialogue was funny but contrived, and all the characters seem to have had the same sense of humor two major mistakes in British forms of address that didn t make any difference to the story but grated on me like nails on a chalkboard and one of the most unbelievable and clich d plot points I ve ever encountered plunked right in the middle of a really good climax.

    5. This is another one of those Holmes spinoffs that for some reason I am drawn to The difference here is that the main character is Moriarty, not Holmes, with the premise being that maybe Moriarty is not quite the demon Holmes thinks he is This was heading for a 4 star rating from me well written, good puzzles to solve, etc until a plot twist at the end I found ridiculous Still enjoyable, however.

    6. A large cargo of gold is being shipped from Calcutta to London on The Empress of India Sherlock Holmes is hired to guard it, but he disappears before he can travel to India Who is after the gold, and how does he hope to steal it Professor Moriarty, Colonel Moran, and Holmes join forces to protect the gold and solve the impossible crime.

    7. An enjoyable, if simple, mystery A few points seemed rather obvious, although, as a reader who enjoys solving the mystery before the detective, it was not without its rewards.I really enjoy the character descriptions and witty dialogue provided by the author.

    8. Very good I liked the part where Watson went to see Holmes and Holmes knew Watson had recovered from his recent illness.

    9. A good summer read Language, setting, and characters reminded me of the Sherlock series Exquisite artwork on the dust jacket of the hard copy and he answers his own e mail.

    10. A turnabout Prof Moriarty as the detective and Holmes as the criminal well almost, nothing is as it seems There are in the series too
