His razor-sharp intellect, uncanny powers of deduction, and knowledge of the criminal underground are legendary throughout London. He solves cases with the able assistance of his close friend and confidant. And, one day, he will become the arch enemy of Sherlock Holmes.

Meet Professor James Moriarty - consulting criminal.

In these three original tales - collected for the first time - Andy Weir brings to life a Moriarty worthy of the Great Detective himself.

    "Moriarty is a bad person. And you will love him."

    Andy Weir is brilliant and these Moriarty stories are fantastic. Excellently voiced over and I hope volumes and volumes more will be forthcoming. Thanks Andy!

    "Nicely Done"

    Fun few stories... Amusing mirroring of the criminal to Sherlock and Watson's lawful... originalish and entertaining... Bit pricey though...

    "Love it!"

    I am a longtime fan of Sherlock Holmes, but I love this new perspective of Moriarty. He’s the evil Sherlock, and not only do you see his genius in solving problems, but he twists it all to his own advantage. MORE PLEASE!

    "Smart twist on Holmes story"

    Very well done although too short to be worth a credit. Audible needs half credits for short stories.

    Story
    "A good tribute to the Holmes universe"

    Andy Weir did a good job of creating a villain in the tone and tenor of the Sherlock Holmes universe. And in keeping the stories short and quickly wrapped up, Mr. Weir seems to be using a style reminiscent to the days when The Adventure of Sherlock Holmes were also short pieces written for magazine inclusion.

    In these stories, Moriarty is certainly the much darker side of Holmes. He uses similar observations and reasoning in assembling the clues into answers. In fact, my favorite parts weren't when Moriarty would wrap up a mystery. Actually, in two of the stories the outcome were somewhat predictable. Instead, my satisfaction came when he would describe how all the clues came together.

    In all, a good tribute by Mr. Weir to the Sherlock Holmes universe.

    As narrator, I found that Graeme Malcolm's delivery was top notch. His voice is both deep and rumbly almost to the point of gravelly combined with British smooth. In his characterization of Moriarty, he sounds like someone I wouldn't want to cross.

    "Outstanding, but too short"

    Its hard to give it 5 stars as short as it is, but it is masterfully done! Well written, excellent voicing, and a pace that is easy to listen to. But why oh why Mr Weir was it so short? I hope it was only to wet our appetite for something else up your sleeve. Another much larger volume that takes a different perspective on this classic tale? I certainly hope that this is the idea and that Mr Malcolm is asked to return once again to voice the cast and spin the tale of this interesting look at the Sherlock/Moriarty universe of mystery and murder.

    Story
    "Perfectly written and narrated"

    I just happened across this book and almost wish I hadn't because it left me wanting much much more. In fact that's the only bad thing I have to say about it is that it's only an hour long. It's impeccably written in the style of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and if you weren't paying to close attention you would think you were reading a Sherlock Holmes story rather than one about his arch nemesis. I hope the author has more of this planned because I'm hooked. And without giving too much away, the last lines of the final chapter give me hope for more to come.
