Moriarty is a Sherlock Holmes novel written by author Anthony Horowitz and published in 2014. It is the follow up, but not a sequel, to The House of Silk.[1] Moriarty takes place in 1891 after the events of Doyle's "The Final Problem". Sherlock Holmes appeared only at the end of the novel. The detectives that Holmes worked with in previous cases, such as Athelney Jones and Lestrade, also appeared in the novel.[2][3] The novel follows Frederick Chase and Athelney Jones as they try to prevent a new criminal mastermind taking over the streets of London after Moriarty's demise.[4]
