Watchmen is an exploration of the history and purpose of the superhero genre, how readers connect to it, and what it means philosophically. Many consider this to be Moore's magnum opus.
It starts with a murder. This is the story of a group of super heroes who don't fight crime anymore, because vigilantism was outlawed. Can they figure out who the murderer is before he/she strikes again?
