For Sale: The Poisoned Penman by Dan Andriacco & Kieran McMullen

London, 1922: Two years after helping Sherlock Holmes solve the Hangman Murders, American journalist Enoch Hale becomes even more intimately involved in another puzzling mystery. Langdale Pike, veteran purveyor of gossip to the trash newspapers, is poisoned while sipping tea with Hale - and apparently just as he is about to spill a secret more important than social gossip. With the unrequested aid of advertising copywriter Dorothy Sayers, Hale pursues a number of leads based on notes in Pike's pocket diary - including an interview with the formidable G.K. Chesterton.

His attempts to uncover the identity of one of Pike's fellow club membersbring Hale the unwanted attention of Mycroft Holmes, head of His Majesty's Secret Service, and of his younger brother. Once again Enoch Hale and the theoretically retired but far from retiring Sherlock Holmes join forces to solve a crime that may have international complications. And this time Hale himself almost becomes a victim when he gets too close to the solution. This fast-moving tale is sure to please the many fans of the first Enoch Hale - Sherlock Holmes adventure, The Amateur Executioner.

I love the Enoch Hale series

A friend of mine recommended that I read “The Poisoned Penman,” and I decided to read it as I love Sherlock Holmes pastiches. I was only half-way through that book when I decided to buy “The Amateur Executioner.” I know I probably should have read them in order, but when the authors alluded a few times in Penman to the Hangman Murders, then I decided to read the first book as well.

An absolutely entertaining read.

I just can't understand how two authors with success in individual series can combine and create a third successful series. Andriacco's Sebastian McCabe - Jeff Cody series is a delightful humorous group of tales in contemporary U.S. with wonderful characters who just love Sherlock. McMullen has four standard Sherlockian pastiches that read true to the Canon. This is the second Enoch Hale mystery taking place in the early 1920's with an American journalist in London being involved in a good mystery which includes real persons from the era in believable roles. Only near the end does the "retired" Holmes get involved in solving the case.

Sometimes he does just hit you over the head with it but it just makes the story better.

Dan Andriacco lives up to his reputation as a solid storyteller. His nods to Sherlock Holmes with subtle asides is finessed as always. Sometimes he does just hit you over the head with it but it just makes the story better.

... The Poisoned Penman is set in one of my favorite time periods and favorite locales—1920s London

Dan Andriacco and Kieran McMullen’s Enoch Hale mystery The Poisoned Penman is set in one of my favorite time periods and favorite locales—1920s London. It is the second book in this series, and I’ve read it twice—cover-to-cover.

Enoch Hale returns!
