Holmes Sweet Holmes (Sebastian McCabe-Jeff Cody #2)

Writer-actor-director Peter Gerards 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 wr ...more

Several months have passed since Cody worked with his flamboyant brother-in-law, Prof. Sebastian McCabe, to solve the mystery of who killed prominent Sherlockian collector Woollcott Chalmers. It would be nice to report that his role in that adventure catapulted him to at least twenty minutes of fame, earned him a book contract for his hard-boiled Max Cutter mysteries, and forever enshrined him as a hero in the heart of his no-longer-ex girlfriend, Lynda Teal.

Poor Jeff.

Although he’s working on an

This second Jeff Cody mystery starts on a bad note. While the writing is excellent, in the line of “No Police Like Holmes,” I was bothered by the very poor explaining of the old one-ahead trick in one of the first chapters. Then, Ralph Pendergast's aggressiveness started to piss me off in this novel, making it less credible. Too much is too much. But even before that, what exasperated me to the highest degree was the annoying clinging to grammar rules nobody observes anymore. In the first novel ...more

This book is the second Sebastian McCabe – Jeff Cody mystery, following his earlier No Police Like Holmes. This book lacks the impressive character set of eccentric Sherlockians encountered in the first, but it does present a dandy mystery and a new set of eccentrics.

Well now. After reading the first book in this series (No Police Like Holmes...see my review), I didn't have high hopes for the sequel. To my surprise, the issues I groused about with NPLH did not exist in this book. The relationship between Jeff and his bro-in-law Sebastian is described how they should have been in book two. It makes more sense and my dislike of Jeff is fading and he is actually becoming a more likable person.
Again, I prefer an amateur detective, so Jeff and his cohorts are jus
