Publisher's summary

The latest installment of Audible’s blockbuster addition to the Sherlock Holmes universe, now featuring Dame Helen Mirren in a deliciously villainous performance, with Dominic Monaghan and Phil LaMarr returning to their leading roles.

Professor James Moriarty (Monaghan) is back for a gripping new adventure that finds him joining forces with his bitter rival, Sherlock Holmes (LaMarr). Moriarty tracks down the woman he loves but discovers that she is trapped in the web of a shadowy cabal of evil that’s growing stronger every day. To fight it, Moriarty must face Lady Milverton (Mirren), a ruthless mastermind whose blackmail poisons the highest levels of power. When he learns that his nemesis Sherlock Holmes is also in Milverton’s grip, the two must set their animosity aside to stop an escalating threat of world war.

The all-star cast’s performances, paired with a meticulously crafted sound design, make Moriarty: The Silent Order a truly electrifying audio experience. Come for the heart-pounding thrills, and stay for the biting wit and shocking twists. You’ve been warned: The game is once again afoot.

Not for me

I realize I'm going against the current by saying I didn't like this very much, and I'll explain why in a moment. I don't mean to take anything away from anyone else's pleasure, though, so feel free to ignore me.

Moriarty is pure hocum -- a lurid plot with a lot of melodramatic touches, with some appropriately broad performances. It's like old radio in that respect, and that kind of thing can be fun -- Orson Welles as the Shadow, for example. But it grated on me, like the first part, which I dropped after a few minutes. Unlike the old pulp stories, you constantly have the feeling that someone is trying to be clever. Every minute of it reminds you that somebody's written it, and not very well. The dialogue is so derivative, and so anachronistic, that it could have been generated by ChatGPT.

For example, after his tumble at the Falls, Holmes has gone missing. The bad guys have a man in a room who's lost his memory, who they've been torturing to get his memory back, as, apparently, you do in such cases. He turns out to be Sherlock Holmes! In case you missed it that this was supposed to be stunningly unpredictable, the music spends a good part of a minute cuing you that it was, and giving you time to absorb it.

But, you know, it's got Helen Mirren in it, and she sounds as if she was enjoying herself. Nothing is without some redeeming feature.

A Great Sequel To A Great Series

This chapter was full of tons of twists and references, harkening back to The Adventure of the Empty House, The Adventure of the Second Stain, and The Adventure of Charles Augustus Milverton. It's a shame that they couldn't get the original voice actor for Colonel Moran but all in all, a terrific story I look forward to seeing continue, hopefully all the way to His Last Bow. The storytelling was gripping with more twists than I could have expected. It was a great listen.

Another good Holmes-Moriarty story

The voice acting was fantastic, even better this time and the first one was already vwry well done.
The story kept rolling along with some expected and a few less expected twisrs and turns and all the while it kept moving. I binge listened to it and found it to be an entertaining performance and I look forward to the next one.
I used to be a complete Sir Arthir Conan Doyle Sherlockian snob, hut there are quite a few great additions to the pantheon, although not considered canon, and it has been fun enjoying them
all, including this Moriarty series.

So entertaining!

I just listed to the first and second performances for the first time and was simply delighted in the story and acting. I haven’t really been thrilled with a Sherlock Holmes original or interpretation before but the actor chemistry in this version thoroughly pulled me in for both editions. I very much look forward to the next season(?) and listening again to these two beforehand. What a gem!

not as good as the first

first one was amazing so expectations were high and I did not think this was as good as the first. But for a sequel the story wasn't too bad. the production value was high but not overwhelming with sound effects; that element I actually think was done very well. overall it is pretty good and worth listening to especially if you like Sherlock Holmes stories.

Typical hollywood crap

It would take longer to detail all the errors with this story than it took to listen to it. Laws of physics?Who needs them, it would only distract from the story.....anything can happen like magic regardless of how inpluasible.
A multi-story building is collasped with a hammer and a vial of acid,
They smash a steel cell door hinge with a handy rock (strong rock) but only break one Hinge to open the door? How would that work in reality?
if you can pass a third grade science test you are banned from hollywood?
A math equation to predict to the second what will happen? Wow.i guess if you know absolutly nothing about math you might believe that.

Like being teleported into a rich world of grit and color

This was just awesome. I intended to listen a few times on my way to work to spread it over a week or so but binged it in one sitting. It was just so good with thoughtful plot and layers of deceit and stunning sound design and voice performance. Dominic Monaghan is obviously an accomplished film actor but his role as Moriarty is just wow. It’s also a fun reimaginatiom to paint Sherlock Holmes as a little bit of a gritty, cocky, Brit, while the good professor sounds more like the queens English, but is a mastermind of the most prolific crime. They’re both bad guys and it’s SO great. Part III please.

Thoroughly Enjoyable!!!!

I really enjoyed this second chapter of sorts. I am going back to listen to the first part again. I sincerely love how they developed Moriarty. I saw Holmes being more of the spirit they brought here on several occasions. I hope this continues!!
