Mana recenzija/My review

Pirmā triloģijas grāmata The Devil’s Grin noslēdzas ar Annas un Holmsa panākumu, bet ne līdz galam. Jo, lai gan tika aizturēti pētījuma izpildītāji un citas mazās zivis, paši lielākie tomēr izspruka cauri sveikā.

The Fall sākas ar Annas nolaupīšanu no pašas slēptuves, un tā stāstā iesoļo profesors Džeims Moriartijs, kurš ir tikpat vērīgs un inteliģents kā iepriekš minētie galvenākie tēli, bet tajā pašā laikā arī ļoti atšķirīgs. Viņu nemoka sirdsapziņa, lai sasniegtu mērķi un panāktu savu.

Šķiet, vakcīnās izstrāde pret holeru bija vien tāds sākotnējs tests, jo iemesls, kāpēc Anna nu ir gūstekne, ir Moriartija griba, lai viņa izstrādātu bioloģisku ieroci, kas vienkārši sagrautu jebkuru ienaidnieku pirms kārtīga kauja vispār ir sākusies. Tas, cik Moriartijs reizēm spēj būt neapdomīgs, parāda viņa pārgalvīgais priekšlikums sākt ar mēra baktērijām.

Atrašanās Moriartija gūstā laika gaitā soli pa solim izmaina Annu virzienā (arī fiziskā ziņā), kādā viņa pati diezin vai būtu devusies. Starp abiem visu laiku norit spēkošanās kā kaķim ar peli, cenšoties pārspēt viltība otru, tā nezaudējot kontroles sajūtu.

Pa starpu pamata sižetam, ir arī daži mazāki, kā Annas palīdzība kučiera un kalpones attiecību aizsākšanā. Tādejādi iesaistot un parādot mazāk galvenu tēlu puses. Ja pirmajā grāmatā Šerloka brālis pieminēts vien vārdiski, tad šajā arī neliela darbība ar viņa iesaistīšanos.

Lai gan noslēgums ir līdzīgi veiksmīgs (vienlaikus bēdīgs) kā pēc holeras lietas, nepamet sajūta, ka arī šoreiz netiek notverti visi lielie bosi.

Ja par sēriju kopumā pagaidām, tad žēl, ka Garets nav ticis izmantots plašāk, kā arī apšaubu, vai prīkvela ļaundaris bija Moriartijs. Cerams noslēdzošā grāmata viesis skaidrību gan par šo, gan vēl šo to.

­                                                                                                                                                 

The first trilogy’s book The Devil’s Grin ended with Anna’s and Sherlock’s success but not for 100%. Because, although those who conducted the experiments and research and other small fish were caught, the big ones got away.

The Fall starts with Anna’s kidnapping from her hiding place and with that we are introduced to professor James Moriarty, who is just as observing and intelligent as my previously mentioned two main characters, but at the same time he is very different. Conscience isn’t a factor that might hinder him to reach his goals.

It seems that creating vaccine for cholera was just some first steps in much bigger game. Because the reason why Anna now is a hostage is that Moriarty wants that she would help him create biological weapons making victory in a battle and war just that easy. His suggestion to start with bacteria of Plague shows how much hasty, irrational and bold Moriarty sometimes can be.

Being imprisoned by Moriarty changes (also in the physical way) Anna step by step in a way that she probably wouldn’t go herself. Both characters are all the time playing the cat and mouse game between each other trying outmaneuver the other and not losing the control along the way.

Besides the main plot there are also few minor like Anna helping cabman and maid to start their relationship. Thereby involving and demonstrating other characteristics of side characters. If in the first book Sherlock’s brother Mycroft was only mentioned by name then in this one he was allowed also a little action.

Albeit the ending is similarly successful (at the same time a bit sad) as in case of cholera, a feeling that not everyone important enough was captured.

And about the series overall right now, then after the prequel I hoped that Garret would be used more or at all! Also I don’t think that the Villain from that same book wasn’t Moriarty. Hopefully the concluding book will clear this and other questions.
