Idlewild Hall, the abandoned, rotting and perhaps haunted Vermont boarding school for "troubled girls" is the backdrop for this superbly crafted mystery. Past and present crimes weave together to create an eerie and unsettling read that is impossible to put down. I loved this book!!! ~ Reviewed by Sarah Donner

The Word about The Word is Murder Is "Wow". This book made me smile from the first page on wards. A true whodunit in a very proper British style and humor seamlessly combined with memoir in a wholly new genre. Horowitz has outdone himself. The premise: a respectable woman designs her own funeral and is found murdered that same day -- and still I smiled. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan

This is a twisty, unique and entertaining take-off of the classic British mystery. Uniquely told from the author's often ironic point of view, this delightfully witty romp follows him as he unwillingly plays Watson to Detective Hawthorne's Sherlock while the detective attempts to solve the mystery of the murder (or was it suicide?) of a woman who had just planned her own funeral. Because of the unusual perspective, I felt like I was right there with them, drawn into the twist and turns all the way to the surprising conclusion. I LOVED it, and can't wait for Horowitz's next mystery! ~ Reviewed by Tambra Johnson Reap

It’s hard to believe this is a debut novel for author C.J. Tudor. In 1986 a group of young friends find a headless corpse, and the aftermath of that resonates long after, culminating in a new murder 20 years later. There are so many twists and turns your head will be spinning by the time all the mysteries are solved. And that ending? You’ll NEVER see it coming. ~ Reviewed by Tambra Johnson Reap
