Pre-order the brand new Anthony Horowitz novel The Twist of a Knife, coming August 2022! 'EASILY THE GREATEST OF OUR CRIME WRITERS' Sunday Times Chosen as one of Crime Time's books of the year! If you enjoyed BBC's Sherlock, you'll LOVE The Word is Murder. _________________ Buried secrets, murder and a trail of bloody clues lie at the heart of Anthony Horowitz's page-turning new detective series. SHE PLANNED HER OWN FUNERAL. BUT DID SHE ARRANGE HER OWN MURDER? A woman is strangled six hours after organising her own funeral. Did she know she was going to die? Did she recognise her killer? Daniel Hawthorne, a recalcitrant detective with secrets of his own, is on the case, and he's found himself a sidekick - popular crime novelist Anthony Horowitz, who's struck a deal with Hawthorne to turn his latest case into a true crime bestseller. But the case is twistier and bloodier than Hawthorne had bargained for, and the unlikely duo of detective and writer find themselves neck deep in danger. When the written word is your only defence, you know you're in trouble when the word is murder... _________________ 'Raises the game-playing to Olympic level' Guardian Books of the Year 'A real page-turner. I loved it!' Aled Jones 'Horowitz blurs the line between fact and fiction' Financial Times 'Splendidly entertaining, absorbing and difficult to put down. Hawthorne is an intriguing character' Daily Express 'Sharp-witted readers who think they've solved the puzzle early on can rest assured that they've opened only one of many dazzling Christmas packages Horowitz has left beautifully wrapped under the tree' Kirkus Reviews 'Deduction and wit are well-balanced, and fans of Peter Lovesey and other modern channelers of the spirit of the golden age of detection will clamor for more' Publishers Weekly

This is a funny, crafty, well-worked out crime mystery, all rolled into one clever package. I loved it. * The People's Friend * Anthony Horowitz's The Word is Murder is terrifically funny. He inserts himself as a character into his own novel, dragged into solving crimes by a disgraced police detective. They're an unlikely duo and it's a hilarious read. * Shari Lapena *
