Staff Reviews


Anthony Horowitz keeps getting better and better. A continuation on the clever conceit he initiates in THE WORD IS MURDER, Horowitz once again finds himself as a character in his own detective novel. He begrudgingly teams up with Hawthorne in order to solve not one, but three suspicious deaths. Horowitz has developed a unique storytelling method and I hope this is not the last one we see.

“I really love this series by Anthony Horowitz. The mystery behind the murders is so expertly plotted and layered that you could make a case for any suspect. In this book, a divorce lawyer is found dead in his home after being beaten over the head with a VERY expensive bottle of wine, and the number 182 is painted on his wall. When Private Investigator Daniel Hawthorne drives onto the set of Horowitz’s TV show shoot, Horowitz has no choice but to follow his lead and write about the case. As always, I’m anxiously awaiting the next in this series.”
