Meet the new Athelney Jones. Version 2.0. He’s a Scotland Yard inspector who appeared in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Sign of Four Jones and cluelessly arrested the wrong man on suspicion of murder, only to be humiliated when Holmes solved the mystery with his usual theatrical flair.
England’s celebrated consulting detective is nowhere to be found in Anthony Horowitz’s fiendishly clever new thriller Moriarty. But Athelney Jones has returned, and he is a changed man.
