My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An absolutely fascinating tale of the real life Professor Moriarty, which gives a real insight into the strange, criminal world, just before modern detection methods started to arrive. His ‘career’ path is riveting, and it’s only towards the end that the writing fades, which loses this book a star. Otherwise, a must read.
