This mysterious collection includes three puzzling page-turners from the bestselling author, Anthony Horowitz - including two Sherlock Holmes stories.

The House of Silk finds London frozen by a seemingly everlasting winter in 1890. Holmes and Watson are enjoying a nice cup of tea in 221b Baker Street when an agitated gentleman arrives unannounced. He mentions a scar-faced man has been stalking him and soon our heroic detectives find themselves in a case that stretches from the streets of London to the criminal underworld of Boston...

In Moriarty, Holmes is dead - he fell to his doom along with his nemesis Moriarty at Reichenbach Falls. But the death of Moriarty has inspired a fiendish new criminal mastermind - and Pinkerton agent Frederick Chase has to hunt this elusive criminal down before he has the chance to cause significant damage; Magpie Murders is an Atticus Pünd story that finds the talented detective looking into a murder at Pye Hall that may not be quite what it seems.

For fans of authors like: Ngaio Marsh, Agatha Christie, Arthur Conan Doyle.

Anthony Horowitz 3 Book Collection -

This was the best spent £5 ever ... the books arrived in time and of course, were in good condition, but the content, I was so fascinated and drawn into the story immediately that I stayed up almost all night and finished reading the Magpie Murders. Next day I have indulged myself in reading The House of Silk and wished never to get to the end of the book. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle but somehow more enjoyable, page after page the streets and characters of 1890s England were all part of me. Brilliant! Looking forward to more!

Good books and good value -

Firstly, the books I ordered arrived in good time and were in good condition and of course they were at an excellent price.

I bought the box set after listening to The House of Silk as an audio book. I thought it was an excellent addition to the Sherlock Holmes canon and well worth reading for fans. It has, perhaps, a darker tone than Conan Doyle's stories but I think that reflects the times it was written in. All in all good enough that I bought this box set on the strength of it.

I have just started Moriarty and have become immediately engrossed in the story. Like the previous book it has the feel of a Conan Doyle story without slipping into parody.
