Some crimes are bigger than others, and the same is true of crime stories. Rogues Gallery brings together for the first time a series of shorter Sebastian McCabe-Jeff Cody mysteries - three novellas and two short stories. The many fans of the McCabe - Cody novels will be delighted to find that these tales are characterized by the same dry humor, solid plotting, and adroit characterization that distinguished the novel-length adventures.

This case book includes:

Art in the Blood - An art show in downtown Erin, featuring the works of Kate McCabe and other female artists, goes horribly awry when murder stalks the gallery.

The Revengers - Halloween finds Jeff Cody and Lynda Teal dressed as John Steed and Emma Peel. But before they get to the party, they find themselves in an Avengers-like mystery.

Santa Crime - Sebastian McCabe, dressed as Santa Claus for a Christmas event at a local charity, finds himself acting more like Sherlock Holmes to solve a holiday theft.

A Cold Case - House-hunting turns into a nightmare for the newly married Jeff and Lynda when a body turns up in the freezer chest of a house they'd like to call home.

Dogs Don't Make Mistakes - Nobody would blame Jeff and Mac's friend Ashley Crutcher for shooting her estranged husband when he entered their home in the middle of the night. But she insists she didn't do it.

PRAISE FOR ROGUE'S GALLERY
Dan Andriacco hits it out of the park with Rogues Gallery, a collection of short mystery stories featuring the two unlikely brothers-in-law and modern day Holmes and Watson of Sebastian McCabe and Jeff Cody. Narrator Cody is a sardonic, witty newlywed everyman while McCabe (rotund in the tradition of Nero Wolfe) is an avid, oddball Sherlockian with formidable powers of his own. Andriacco's distinctive tone delights - in a similar manner to the brilliant M.C.Beaton - with his combination of cozy, small town detail and hilarious and pointed observations of its denizens.The cozy elements are all in the settings, here including an all-female art show, Christmas and Halloween parties, college politics and the developing relations of Cody and his new bride as they navigate newlywed issues. But unlike many mysteries with cozy elements, Andriacco's plots are masterful. Like a skilled close-up magician, Andriacco lulls you into what appears to be quiet Midwestern sense of normalcy, only to turn up an ace from his sleeve with a murderous surprise. You're in the hands of a master of mystery plotting here. Rogues Gallery is a delightful read, hard to put down, and highly recommended. And did I say fun?
- Hollywood screenwriter Bonnie MacBird, author of TRON

Another entertaining outing for Cody and McCabe

It’s relatively rare, I think, to find a writer who can pull off both forms equally well. Dan Andriacco achieves this feat in his latest Cody-McCabe release, Rogues Gallery.

For a small Ohio town, Erin sure gets a lot of murder cases. That's no problem for we the readers. But it does fill up the time for Prof. Sebastian McCabe and his best friend and brother-in-law Jeff Cody. In this book the duo face mysteries in 3 short stories and 2 novellas. Each is cunningly plotted in the author's winning style. Will Jeff and his bride ever get their dream home if it comes complete with a body in the freezer? Who killed the new head of the college's art department at the art gallery show? Most entertaining and a wonderful addition to Andriacco's series of McCabe and Cody mystery novels already offered to the public. Read, read them all!

Dan Andriacco is a very skillled and enjoyable writer. He specializes in making the commonplace uncommon and adding just the right number of quirks to his characters to keep the reader deeply engaged. Good stuff. Well worth the reading time.
