Holmes Sweet Holmes“I loved Dan Andriacco’s first novel about Sebastian McCabe and Jeff Cody, and I’m delighted to recommend the second, which has a curiously topical touch. Holmes Sweet Holmes concerns the murder of Peter Gerard, writer, director and star of 221B Bourbon Street, which re-imagines Sherlock Holmes as a jazz-playing American in 1920s New Orleans. The characters are engaging, the plot is cunning, and the writing is literate and witty. This is classy stuff!” – Roger Johnson, The Sherlock Holmes Society of LondonNo Police Like HomesIt’s a satirical look at Holmes and the industry he’s spawned, but it’s affectionate and neatly constructed . . . There are plenty of twists, a good few red herrings and an ending which surprised me as I had someone entirely different chalked in as the murderer.” – The Bookbag“Andriacco’s characters and their lives are so very normal and untormented, his writing style so light, and his observations so witty that No Police Like Holmes is an enjoyable, palate-cleansing romp of a mystery with a little Sherlockian education thrown in.” – Well-Read Sherlockian“Cody is engaging enough to make further books in the series welcome.” – Publishers WeeklyBaker Street Beat“Baker Street Beat is an entertaining collection of short essays, stories and screenplays by Dan Andriacco, a self confessed Sherlock Holmes aficionado, and covering the author’s own experiences and knowledge of the world of Holmes . . . In all, I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who has a love of Holmes and wants to learn more about him.” – Cult Britannia
The 1895 MurderPopular mystery writer Sebastian McCabe is about to conquer a new world with his Sherlock Holmes play 1895. On opening night, however, his Erin, Ohio theatrical debut as both playwright and actor is upstaged by a murder in back of the newly renovated theater.“Reading The 1895 Murder, the third mystery in Dan Andriacco’s Sebastian McCabe/Jeff Cody series was like visiting a group of friends who, yet again, find themselves embroiled in a murder investigation. Andriacco’s masterful plotting had me stumped. When book four comes out, I will be one of the first to crack the cover.” – Kathleen Kaska, author of the Sydney Lockhart mystery series and the Classic Triviography books.“Dan Andriacco has a writing style I would love to have. Dan has characters that have real lives and who you can identify with. His Jeff Cody character has great wit and McCabe great intelligence. His books are just fun to read." –Kieren McMullen, author of Watson’s Afghan Adventure and Sherlock Holmes and the Irish RebelsTWITTER: @Dan Andriacco
