An enjoyable pastiche by Kim Newman, this has negligible overlap with his vampire series other than minor mentions of the Diogenes club.

It is largely an homage to a wide variety of Victorian fictional villains and villainesses written in a combination of the styles of Conan Doyle and of George McDonald Fraser. The narrator is Colonel Moran, whose character is modelled on Fraser's Flashman. Moriarty and his "family" appear to owe a lot to the Moriarty trilogy by John Gardner.

While I don't believe this is as strong a book as Kim Newman's other publications it is well worth reading.

A fun read. I'm a Holmes fan, but it's always interesting to see things from the other perspective- the villians of the Holmesian world. Darkly humorous.
