When a shipment of gold aboard the cargo ship The Empress of India mysteriously vanishes en route to its destination, Sherlock Holmes is called in to uncover the truth about the seemingly impossible theft, while Professor Moriarty, tired of the trouble resulting from becoming the prime suspect in the crime, takes it upon himself to locate the missing gold. 10,000 first printing.

McMillan Palgrave
In the late Victorian days, a large amount of gold is arriving unannounced on the cargo ship The Empress of India. Yet the impossible happens--the shipment of gold disappears en route. Sherlock Holmes, brought in by Her Majesty's Government, knows that only one man is both diabolical and clever enough to pull off such an outlandish, daring, and, yes, theoretically impossible crime: Professor James Moriarty. Moriarty, however, had nothing to do with the crime and yet finds himself under siege from all sides. To regain his peace, Professor Moriarty undertakes to locate the missing gold. But the gold is only the exposed tip of the iceberg and he soon finds himself matching wits with a mind as nimble--perhaps even more so--than his own.
