About this item

The New York Times bestselling author of Magpie Murders and Moriarty brilliantly reinvents the classic crime novel once again with this clever and inventive mystery starring a fictional version of the author himself as the Watson to a modern-day Holmes, investigating a case involving buried secrets, murder, and a trail of bloody clues.A woman crosses a London street.It is just after 11 a.m. on a bright spring morning, and she is going into a funeral parlor to plan her own service.Six hours later the woman is dead, strangled with a crimson curtain cord in her own home.Enter disgraced police detective Daniel Hawthorne, a brilliant, eccentric man as quick with an insult as he is to crack a case. And Hawthorne has a partner, the celebrated novelist Anthony Horowitz, curious about the case and looking for new material.As brusque, impatient, and annoying as Hawthorne can be, Horowitz-a seasoned hand when it comes to crime stories-suspects the detective may be on to something, and is irresistibly drawn into the mystery. But as the case unfolds, Horowitz realizes he's at the center of a story he can't control ... and that his brilliant partner may be hiding dark and mysterious secrets of his own.A masterful and tricky mystery which plays games at many levels, The Word Is Murder is Anthony Horowitz at his very best.
