Abstract:

It is the turn of the century and, far from perishing during the struggle with Sherlock Holmes at the Reichenbach Falls, Professor James Moriarty is alive and well and about to realize his plans to establish crime syndicates in the major cities of the United States. But suddenly he is called back to London, where his vast criminal society has been overrun by a rival concern led by the shadowy Sir Jordan Jack Idell--or Idle Jack --a supposed gentleman-hoodlum acting on behalf of criminal elements in France, Italy, Spain, and Germany.
