A cyberversion of Sherlock Holmes is created to track down an accidently
released cyberversion of Moriarty. The big clue involves both the binomial
theorem and binomial variables.

I'm afraid that this story, though cute, really strained my abilities to suspend disbelief. Not only are we expected to believe that Charles Babbage actually created a computer which became a state secret, but this computer was supposed to have been powerful enough to run an artificially intelligent program which was a sentient "Sherlock Holmes". The mention (but apparently, not much of an understanding) of the binomial theorem and its counterpart in probability theory are not enough to save this story in my mind.
