"Classy," says London!

Here's what The District Messenger, newsletter of the Sherlock Holmes Society of London, has to say about my latest mystery novel in a new review by Roger Johnson:

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 (MX Publishing; £10.99 / $18.99 / €12.99) concerns the murder of Peter Gerard, writer, director and star of 221B Bourbon Street, which reimagines Sherlock Holmes as a jazzplaying American in 1920s New Orleans. The film is a hit, but some Sherlockian fundamentalists have sent hate mail. Did an angry Sherlockian break in to St Benignus College and kill Gerard? And how could Gerard be murdered twice? The characters are engaging, the plot is cunning, and the writing is literate and witty. This is classy stuff!
