Ah - Moriarty, the Napoleon of crime. Not only had he masterminded the greatest criminal network in Europe, he sought to extend his evil tentacles to the far reaches of the empire.

Wherever there was suffering and exploitation, he was there. Wherever there was opportunity and weakness he was ready to make the most.

Corruption was his name and ill-gotten profit was his game. He was the master of graft, terror and evil.

He is a man of good birth and excellent education, endowed by nature with a phenomenal mathematical faculty. At the age of twenty-one he wrote a treatise upon the binomial theorem which has had a European vogue.

On the strength of it, he won the mathematical chair at one of the smaller provincial universities, and had, to all appearances, a most brilliant career before him.

But the man had hereditary tendencies of the most diabolical kind. A criminal strain ran in his blood, which, instead of being modified, was increased and rendered infinitely more dangerous by his extraordinary mental powers.

But he was to meet with his nemesis in Papua and New Guinea- Holmes, Watson and Daa!

Should be Part 3 methinks.

And who is Moriarty?
