"Witty and Ingenious," Reviewer Says

The December issue of The District Messenger, newsletter of the Sherlock Holmes Society of London, contains a great review of Rogues Gallery and of my work in general. Here's what it says:
The tales of Sebastian McCabe and Jeff Cody by Dan Andriacco follow an appealing tradition dating back to Anthony Boucher’s The Case of the Baker Street Irregulars. They’re quality fair-play detective stories about a Sherlock Holmes devotee. After four novels, all highly recommended, Dr Andriacco’s latest book is Rogues Gallery (MX; £8.99), a collection of witty and ingenious short stories.
And don't forget, one of those short stories - "Santa Crime" - is a sentimental Christmas mystery. Sebastian  McCabe dresses up as Old St. Nick but, as usual, acts more like Sherlock Holmes.
