The story of Adam Worth, unknown to most of us, but a legend in the annals of crime. Worth was the greatest criminal mastermind of the 19th century, and served as the inspiration for Arthur Conan Doyle's Professor Moriarty, Sherlock Holme's nemesis. This is Part 1, covering Worth's beginnings in the US and his crimes in London, which included the theft of a valuable piece of art from a London art gallery, a crime for which he became well known in the criminal world. Worth never killed or threatened innocent persons during his days, preferring to use his wit to pull off hundreds of heists, thus earning the respect of Allen Pinkerton, who finally elicited his full confession.
