The Great Hiatus has long fascinated and baffled Sherlockians all over the world. Now, however, within these pages, they have the opportunity for the very first time to hear Colonel Sebastian Moran, the only witness to the Reichenbach episode, speak frankly about his remarkable encounters with Sherlock Holmes during this three-year period.

Even Colonel Moran, however, did not foresee the startling result these activities were to have on his later life. The revelations in The Lure of Moriarty will provide the reader with a stimulating insight into the Colonel's early contacts with Professor James Moriarty and his initiation into Moriarty's infamous international network of crime.

Review:

"The File on Colonel Moran: Volume One: The Lure of Moriarty" by Vernon Mealor is shorter that John Gardner's "Moriarty", but just as exciting. It begins with Moran's own account of the events at the Reichenbach Falls and at Camden House, Baker Street. There are welcome echoes of Harry Flashman here, and, as you might expect, the Colonel's story differs rather from Sherlock Holmes's. Then we come to "a weekly series of exciting adventures" published in The Daily News, "related by our reporter Mr Mark Jordan following exclusive interviews with the Colonel". The interviews take place in a prison cell, and I have the feeling that Mr Jordan is not quite what he appears to be. The stories are clever, suspenseful and atmospheric.
