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.

Bit predictable

Not likely to tax your deductive powers.
It’s a interesting angle to take on this subject matter.

The Wicked Side of the Sherlock Holmes World

A fantastic introduction to Professor Moriarty that may well have been written by Arthur Conan Doyle himself. The story is told from the perspective of an underworld figure to detail some of his early experiences with Professor Moriarty. It is greatly reminiscent of Watson following along with Holmes on his adventures, but from a playfully wicked angle.

Graeme Malcolm narrates superbly. One of my highlight's being his portrayal of a crime boss in the second chapter.

TL;DR: If you enjoy Sherlock Holmes and are even a little curious about the evil side of that world then you'll enjoy this. If only there were more than the three short tales featured here.

A fun little tale

Andy Weir demonstrates his writerly chops once again, this time giving us a look at the villainous Moriarty's early exploits in evil.
If you're a fan of Sherlock Holmes, or little mysteries, get this one - it's short, but sweet!
