“The title of The 1895 Murder by Dan Andriacco (MX Publishing, www.mxpublishing.co.uk; £9.99/$16.95/€12.99) refers neatly to a play based on ‘The Bruce-Partington Plans’, written by Professor Sebastian McCabe of St Benignus College, Erin, Ohio. As he proved in No Police Like Holmes and Holmes Sweet Holmes, Mac is a devoted Sherlockian and a highly skilled detective, so when a man is shot dead outside the theatre where he’s playing Mycroft Holmes, he and his brother-in-law Jeff Cody are pleased to help find the killer. Well, mostly. Jeff‘s mind, naturally, is on his impending wedding and the need for diplomacy with his fiancée’s rather unpredictable parents. It’s a pleasure to visit Erin again and to watch the solving of a particularly baffling mystery.” The 1895 Murder is available from all good bookstores including in the USA Amazon, in the UK Waterstones and Amazon, and for everywhere else Book Depository who offer free worldwide delivery. In ebook format there is Kindle, Nook, iPad and Kobo.
