Synopsis[edit | edit source]

A twist on Conan Doyle‘s original Sherlock Holmes series, Moriarty the Patriot follows a man going by the name William and how his ideals of justice take him to become a criminal mastermind. His operation and high intellect is not all too elusive to Sherlock, as they are up to par with one another. They are similar in multiple ways, but their lives and paths vary in more ways than one.
