Praise from Portugal

Nuno Robles of Lisbon, Portugal, recently finished reading No Police Like Holmes. Unable to post his review on amazon.com.uk, he sent it to me and I'd like to share it with you unedited:
This is an amazing reading experience and a great book, both for Sherlockians and for people that never read a Sherlock Holmes book (although they should have, to understand completely this mistery novel).

Following the also highly recommended "Baker Street Beat", Dan Andriacco has written a book that got my full attention from the very first page. It's a dream come true. Extremely well written, I was both intrigued by the developments of this adventure and also by the several Sherlockian references that the writter introduced in this novel.

In a time of so many Sherlock Holmes pastiches, reference books, related books, No Police Like Holmes surely stands out and it's, for me, the best book of the year. Reading this book made me want to be one of its characters and experience the weekend related in the book...it's great, it's fun, it's intense and it really makes a difference. Well done!
Yes, it's a bit over-the-top. What a thrill for me, as a newly published novelist, to have such a fan in a far-off land! Thanks, Nuno, and I'm so glad that you enjoyed my work. I hope that you like the sequel as much.
