The new novel 'Holmes Sweet Holmes' http://mxpublishing.com/product/9781780921402 out this week from Dan Andriacco (Cincinnati), covers the murder of a director who dares to risk the anger of Sherlock Holmes fans. Holmes fans are a passionate bunch, as the #believeinsherlock movement has proved, and in Andriacco’s second Sebastian McCabe novel the question is – did one of them kill director Peter Gerard? His latest film was a smash hit, but some fans of Sherlock Holmes were outraged. Why? Because ‘221 B Bourbon Street’ portrayed the beloved detective as a goateed, saxophone-playing southern American working in 1920s New Orleans.
Was it a disgruntled Sherlockian or someone else who hated Gerard enough to kill him - twice? That's what mystery writer and college professor Sebastian McCabe, assisted by brother-in-law Jeff Cody, must find out before McCabe's own disgraceful involvement in the affair comes to light. And it will take a little stage magic to do it.
Amidst this challenging mystery, Jeff's complicated relationship with the lovely journalist Lynda Teal seems to be reaching a definitive resolution just as Jeff approaches his birthday. Readers who so enjoyed the best-selling ‘No Police Like Holmes’ http://mxpublishing.com/product/9781780922065 will find this sequel packed with the same suspense, surprises, and sharp humor that characterized the debut adventure of Sebastian McCabe and Jeff Cody.
Dan Andriacco’s Sebastian McCabe series of novels is drawing a lot of praise from Sherlock Holmes fans, not least because he doesn’t pull any punches when making fun of those fans who take themselves too seriously.
“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.” Roger Johnson, The Sherlock Holmes Society of London
The timing of the novel, written well before the announcement of CBS’s Elementary, is somewhat interesting as the reaction to the US adaptation continues to draw the wrath of Holmes fans. It’s tough for CBS as US fans and critics continue to heap praise on BBC Sherlock’s second series which is airing now on PBS.
Holmes Sweet Holmes is available though all good bookstores including Barnes and Noble http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/holmes-sweet-holmes-dan-andriacco/1109541475, Amazon and in electronic formats such as Amazon Kindle http://www.amazon.com/Holmes-Sweet-ebook/dp/B007KN2V48, Kobo, Nook and iPad.
