Book Review: The Word Is Murder by Anthony Horowitz

I recently finished The Word Is Murder.

Anthony Horowitz is an amazing writer, and I’d highly recommend his books to anyone who loves a well-written mystery.   Mr. Horowitz has fictionalized himself as a modern-day Watson to a modern day Holmes.

The Goodreads summary reads like this:

One bright spring morning in London, Diana Cowper – the wealthy mother of a famous actor – enters a funeral parlor. She is there to plan her own service.  Six hours later she is found dead, strangled with a curtain cord in her own home.   Enter disgraced police detective Daniel Hawthorne, a brilliant, eccentric investigator who’s as quick with an insult as he is to crack a case. Hawthorne needs a ghost writer to document his life; he chooses “Anthony Horowitz”.

This amazing tale is an fantastic read, and I didn’t even begin to guess “who-done-it”.    Well done, Mr. Horowitz!
