More than a century ago, in the apartment of Mary lived the most famous investigator of all time, a true genius of enigmas and disguises: Sherlock Holmes. The story then moves into the misty London of the late nineteenth century. The detective and his assistant Watson are faced with the worst villain of all, the mad scientist Moriarty.
