Publisher's Summary

When popular mystery writer Sebastian McCabe agreed to take part in a literary debate in London, he had no clue that he would wind up as both investigator and suspect in the strangest case of his amateur sleuthing career. 

Arthur James Phillimore, investment guru to the stars and member of an elite Sherlock Holmes society, steps back into his home to fetch an umbrella one rainy day and is never seen alive again. The mystery is eerily evocative of one of Dr. Watson’s most famous untold tales, the disappearance of Mr. James Phillimore. But this Phillimore soon reappears - dead. 

Jeff Cody and Lynda Teal, also in London on the second leg of their honeymoon, get swept up in the bizarre case as well. From the home gym of a gorgeous movie star (the second Mrs. Phillimore) to the flying office an airline entrepreneur, they help McCabe chase down clues all over London. For the journalist Lynda, it’s a big story. For Jeff, it’s a big distraction from the joys of married life. 

Dogging them along the way is the shadow of Sherlock Holmes, the one subject that several of the characters have in common. The great detective is also a figure for whom Lynda - to Jeff’s dismay and consternation - evinces a growing fascination. Humor, romance, and mystery once again combine in an engaging McCabe-Cody adventure sure to delight the growing fan base of this series.

entertaining and enjoyable

My favorite part is the recap of how it all went down. I enjoy the step by step details but not his arrogance. I did enjoy the story. The short story was very entertaining and sweet and I liked it too. 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. Well done.

Another great McCabe / Cody mystery!

The Disappearance of Mr James Phillimore by Dan Andriacco is the 4th book in the McCabe / Cody mystery series. The story is complex enough and very engaging. The books get better as the series goes on since the characters mature and grow. I enjoyed this book set in Italy and the England. The narration by Tom Lennon was wonderful. The characters come to life with his performance!

Overall, an enjoyable listen!

I'm a huge Sherlock Holmes fan, so I looked forward to this audiobook. The story weaves between Sherlock Holmes and Watson, and Sebastian McCabe and Cody. I found that a little distracting at times for some reason, but that could have been me. The storyline is quite engrossing, and while I enjoyed Tom Lennon narrating, I had to speed it up to make it flow better.

I will go back and listen to the other books in this series as I think it has good potential. Overall, worth the listen!

This book was provided to me for an honest review. (But I would definitely buy it)
