Before he was Sherlock’s rival, Moriarty fought against the unfair class caste system in London by making sure corrupt nobility got their comeuppance. But even the best-intentioned plans can spin out of control—will Moriarty’s dream of a more just and equal world turn him into a hero…or a monster?

Where should I start? If you love the Sherlock Holmes or detective stories or even stories of a villain this is definitely something you can read. This story focuses on the early life and the motives of Moriarty and how he meets Sherlock and what happens after. Overall every chapter is a joy to read. The characters are interesting and each has such complex motivations you can't help but cheer for them. With that comes a lovely art style and a great plot that rehashes the Sherlock stories and makes them even better than before. I highly recommend this manga and my only hope is for more people to read it and see why it's great! So why are you reading this when you could be reading it! :D
*spoilers* I don't think many would agree with this but, I think the manga started off great until chapter 55, **spoiler** where Sherlock and William fell in the river **end of spoiler**, after that the story becomes so unrelated to the original plot, to the point where it got really boring to me and unreadable. This really bothers me because I was such a huge fan of this work, I loved how the story was portrayed in Moriarty's POV instead of Sherlock Holmes. And as you can tell from my profile I'm a huge fan of this version of Sherlock Holmes. I really recommend the anime over the manga, since it ended properly and the ending was satisfying as well. The only down point that some scenes are poorly animated but other than that it's perfect, and a great show to put your time in if you're interested in crime, mystery, and detective genres. Hope this helps :) . . I feel that the author wasn't really allowed to end the manga and was forced to continue with it because of money purposes?
