Moriarty Lifts the Veil

Please join me in congratulating Anna Castle on her newest release, the fourth book in her Professor and Mrs. Moriarty Mystery Series, Moriarty Lifts the Veil! I had the pleasure of working with Anna on a copyedit of this clever mystery featuring Sherlock Holmes's favorite villain and his charming wife, and I designed the book's cover! Here's the description:

It began as a harmless wager. Who could solve their case first?

Professor and Mrs. Moriarty have a few weeks to kill before their theater opens. Happily, two small cases drop in their respective laps. Moriarty has what looks like a scheme to swindle Army veterans out of their discharge pay. Angelina must find a missing servant by winkling her way into a circle of officers’ wives. Neither case seems terribly challenging; just enough to provide an agreeable competition.

But as soon as they start asking questions, things take an ugly turn. Moriarty discovers an army barracks riddled with corruption. Angelina uncovers a terrible secret at the heart of the circle of officers and wives. When Sherlock Holmes returns from a mission in India, he confirms her worst fears. Then a man is murdered, and a good friend is blamed. Scotland Yard sends Holmes to catch their suspect. The Moriartys must use all their courage and ingenuity to rescue their friend, stop a series of loathsome crimes, and put a cold killer behind bars.

Moriarty Lifts the Veil is available now in print and ebook formats on Amazon. Add it to your shelves on Goodreads, and check out Anna's website, where she blogs about her research and writing historical fiction set in England.
