    Audible’s bold new addition to the Sherlock Holmes universe, Moriarty: The Devils Game, dares to ask: What if Holmes’ most villainous nemesis was actually an innocent man?

    Featuring Dominic Monaghan (Lord of the Rings, Lost) in a riveting lead performance, Moriarty turns one of literature’s most famous rivalries on its head, recasting Professor James Moriarty as a desperate fugitive framed for murder–and hunted by dark forces who will stop at nothing to exploit his brilliance.

    Moriarty finds the professor on the heels of an earth-shattering mathematical breakthrough–a formula so powerful, it can predict the future–and at the scene of a gruesome murder he must solve to prove his innocence. With London’s sprawling underworld as their battleground, Moriarty and Holmes match their peerless intellects to gain the ever-shifting upper hand. But as their duel escalates, so does the deadly cost of pursuing the truth. “What will it take to get your justice?” Dr. Watson asks an utterly ensnared Moriarty, “And if do you get it… what will you become?”

    Vividly brought to life by a sensational cast and meticulously crafted sound design, Moriarty is a heart-pounding series filled with biting wit and shocking twists at every turn.

    Listen closely - and assume nothing. The game is afoot.

Alternate Perspective

What if everything you ever thought you knew about the world of Sherlock Holmes was turned upside down? What if Moriarty was a villain because he was judged to be one and therefore seen as one? What if Sherlock actually was a hero because he hid his true motives behind his “good work”?
Thoroughly enjoyable. Just ignore the fact that Holmes would never be able to treat people the way he does and keep his consulting status.

What an interesting twist!

Oh, that was so good!
What an interesting idea, to make Sherlock Holmes such a nasty villain.
The performances were very good and I really enjoyed listening to it. Funny how we've come full circle, listening to stories like the old radio shows.

A nice twist on a classic story

I thought it was a clever way to tell a Sherlock Holmes Story in a way I haven't seen before. Almost like an alternate reality where the heroes and villains switch roles.
Also thought the performances and sound design were excellent.

What an audible page-turner

Outstanding performances in an wonderfully reimagined world of Holmes; taking the listener down a refreshingly new, inventive, exciting path in old world London.
