With his trusted companion Doctor Watson at his side, Holmes matches wits with his arch-nemesis, the evil Professor Moriarty, and faces his greatest challenge: a chilling mystery involving a kidnapped diva, the King of Bohemia, London's seamy underworld, and the only woman to have captured Holmes’ elusive heart.
