Summary "In London, 1890, a well-guarded young nobleman goes missing under distressing circumstances. The nobleman, masquerading under the name Baron Renfrew, is actually Prince Albert Victor, the eldest grandson of Queen Victoria. He disappeared while he was visiting a house of ill repute, guarded by men posted both inside and outside the building. His inside bodyguard was found unconscious, and the trussed-up corpse of a brutally murdered young woman was left behind in the prince's room. Hoping to find the missing prince and to clear him of the murder, the royal family is looking for a brilliant--and, more importantly, discreet--investigator. Sherlock Holmes, alas, is out of the country, so, at the suggestion of his brother Mycroft, they turn to the only man in all of England who just might be even more brilliant--Dr. James Moriarty. Moriarty, at the time, is in jail, accused of murder and awaiting a retrial. In exchange for his release and the dismissal of the charges against him (of which he's innocent), the so-called "Napoleon of Crime" will use all his resources to track down the missing prince and find out who is behind his disappearance and the brutal murders left in his wake. Moriarty soon discovers that it is someone who is deliberately laying a trail and setting up the missing nobleman to take the fall for this series of heinous crimes. If Moriarty doesn't manage to unravel and foil this plot soon, the very future of England itself may be in danger"--Dust jacket.
