Moriarty outsmarts the great Sherlock!

This Audible Original is Fantastic, this is proof that the Sherlock vs Moriarty franchise can move forward with cunning style, intrigue, mystery and stay true to the original characters, if you are a fan of Sherlock & Moriarty this is a refreshing addition to the body of work already available.

Find that one armed man that killed my wife....

All that is missing is Tommy Lee Jones and Harrison Ford. The acting is good though.

A must read. To spite audio issues

I have no idea why people hate this podcast because it is phenomenally brilliant. This is a modern day twist on a classic. I hope they make a sequel to this podcast because I want to know what happens to the professor James Moriarty and his lover.

This was also my very first time ever listening to a Sherlock Holmes story. And I absolutely loved it.

With that being said, audio was not terrible but not great either. Sounded very echoey. Which made this podcast very hard to understand. But this podcast left me wanting more.

Please listen to all 10 episodes before making a review. Because if you do not you are selling yourself short on a great Sherlock Holmes adventure. That will leave you on the edge of your seat. Mr. Charles Kindinger is a brilliant genius.

A new experience

Didn’t know what to expect but pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to keep track of characters. Flashbacks took getting used to also. Much more interesting than audiobooks of same quality because of sounds and voice inflections

Fantastic!

Loved this soooo much! Please keep making more. Dom and Billy are perfect casting, and I enjoyed everyone else as well.

Good listen except for distracting sound effects

The story is good, the voices are decent (although Holmes' voice is not my favorite). The music and sound effects are too loud and distracting, as with most Audible Originals I've listened to. Wish they would tone them down and focus on the story and the voices.

Fascinating concept. Excellent execution

I believe Sir Arthur Conan Doyle would have enjoyed this series. The cast has done very well. Thoroughly enjoyed the plot and writing.

The Twist and Turns

Awesome story and it’s really played out in a perfect way, it’s so fascinating to listen to the story plan out other than watching a movie or reading a book

Terrible

Not enough diversity. It is not enough that Sherlock Holmes is reimagined as an African American. Sherlock Holmes needs to be a gay non-binary transexual of African American AND LatinX American ancestry. As it is we need to demand Amazon rework this to make it more inclusive.
