About this title

Synopsis:

Sherlock Holmes wanted to retire . . .

When Holmes gives up the adventurous life of a consulting detective and retires to the Sussex countryside to raise bees, little does he or his old friend Dr. John Watson realize that their greatest adventures lies ahead-an adventure spanning centuries and extending across the solar system . . . for nothing elss than human civilization lies at state as Sherlock Holmes finds himself moving inexorably toward the final and most terrible confrontation with his ancient enemy, the time-jumping Napoleon of crime, Professor Moriarty!

"Delightfully preposterous . . . a lot of fun!" -- The Republic

"Professor Moriarty, once reported dead, but now rejuventated by the Time Machine which Moriarty has swiped from H.G. Wells' time traveler . . . Doyle to H.G. Wells to Dvorkin . . . nice triple play!" -- The New York Times
