No Police Like Holmes by Dan Andriacco Review
Buy on Amazon
The Investigating Arthur Conan Doyle and Sherlock Holmes Colloquium and donation of the third largest private collection of Sherlockiana in the world were supposed to produce a weekend of great publicity for tiny St. Benignus college in Erin, Ohio. But when theft and murder come to campus, college public relations director Jeff Cody finds himself knee-deep in Sherlockian suspects, besieged by an aggressive reporter he loves but no longer dates, and competing with his eccentric brother-in-law, Sebastian McCabe, to solve the crimes first. The mess worsens when Jeff and his ex-girlfriend, Lynda Teal, themselves fall under suspicion of murder - and with good reason, for they have something to hide. This satirical romp takes Sherlock Holmes seriously, but not Holmesians. A witty and engaging spoof sure to delight not only the deerstalker set but mystery fans in general.
Cassandra's Review- A fantastic mystery that is sure to keep you satisfied. The author did a great job of keeping me up until the very last page.
A former journalist and reviewer of mystery books, Dr. Dan Andriacco has been a member of The Tankerville Club, a scion society of the Baker Street Irregulars, since 1980. His goal in writing mysteries and critical works about the field (including Sherlock Holmes) is to entertain; he strives to be fun and funny, and reviews indicate that he has accomplished this.
Dan's doctorate degree is in ministry, which is reflected in the subject matter of his first two books. In his day job, Dan has been communications director of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati since 1997. Dan and his wife, Ann Brauer Andriacco, have three grown children and five grandchildren. They enjoy traveling, an endless source of experiences that are reflected in Dan's writing.
