Staff Reviews


Anthony is a busy man: a husband, father, and an author with deadlines on novels and hit TV scripts. But when PI Hawthorne appears on the scene, he can't resist - there's been a murder that might make a good book...
Anthony Horowitz is back with another funny, 4th wall breaking book. He's a great writer, and an even better main character, and I hope his (fictional) writing partnership with the rude ex-copper brings us many more mysteries! — Leah Moore

Horowitz is such a clever writer, and this follow up to “The Word is Murder” is just as smart. We again get to revel in the author’s likability, along with the hard to like Detective Hawthorne, as we are carried on a tide of twists and turns. A highly enjoyable way to spend a weekend. — Becky Doherty

June 2019 Indie Next List


“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.”
