Publisher's Summary

Writer-actor-director Peter Gerard's 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 is 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. 

Amid 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. 

Listeners who so enjoyed the best-selling No Police Like Holmes will find this sequel packed with the same suspense, surprises, and sharp humor that characterized the debut adventure of Sebastian McCabe and Jeff Cody.

misdirection

This was very intriguing and entertaining. I enjoyed the case of misdirection and seeing how it all took place. Jeff is quite endearing. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a great job bringing the characters and story to life. I highly recommend this book.

Very good!

Well, I seem to have managed to miss the first book in this series, shame on me! /0\ Nevertheless, I could follow the story with no problem.

And it was a great story! I really liked the main characters and had a lot of fun following their investigation. The mystery was really good; the clues were all there and the resolution very logical.

I most certainly will be reading the rest of the series.

Wonderful academic mystery

I thoroughly enjoyed Holmes Sweet Holmes by Dan Andriacco. Writer-actor-director Peter Gerard is apparently murdered twice while visiting the college - or did he?! Professor Sebastian McCabe and his brother-in-law are intent on solving the crime and saving the academic department. There was a lot of academic infighting which was true to life (remembering my time in grad school and academic career). The story was very entertaining and a classic mystery with many Holmes and other literary references. The narrator, Tom Lennon, was fabulous! He brought the characters to life and made the story that much more enjoyable. Highly recommended!

Classic Whodunnit

This is a classic whodunnit, told with a lovely style. I love the asides and that you are treated to the thoughts of the main character Cody, lots of academic infighting, a double murder and loads of literary references make this a thoroughly enjoyable story, you even have the classic get the suspects back to the scene of the crime finale. I liked the narration, Tom Lennon really does a good job with both Cody and McCabe, he doesn't have a great vocal range for the characters but he is easy to listen too and entertaining. Overall an entertaining classic locked room mystery with lovely touches. I received a complimentary copy from the narrator and am leaving a voluntary honest review
