What is the unbreakable bond that links these two men? Why is it that they battle to destroy each other and yet neither can exist without the other? Holmes & Moriarty - the Yin & Yang of crime and mystery. Their unique relationship is explored in this fascinating routine, and one volunteer discovers to her amazement that their bond is truly unbreakable.
As well as the fully explored and explained Sherlock Holmes angle, several other ways of presenting this routine are also included.

I found this edition of the Coffee Break series to be the weakest so far. The story telling is outstanding, providing fascinating information about Holmes and Moriarty's relationship, but I found the method itself a bit flat. Overall, as part of this excellent series from this excellent author, I encourage you to complete your collection.
