Anthony Horowitz ☆ 1 CHARACTERS

Detective uncovering secrets but hiding his ownA reluctant author drawn into a story he can’t controlWhat do they have in comm. 45 stars Death for me had always been little than a necessity something that moved the plot on But standing in the bedroom of a woman who had so recently died I could feel it right there beside meWhen author Anthony Horowitz is asked to write a book about a former detective inspector now turned private investigator he uickly learns that solving a crime is much different when you find yourself smack dab in the middle of it Investigator Daniel Hawthorne approaches the renowned writer with a deal to go fifty fifty on a book about his work life beginning with a rather peculiar murder of a 60 something year old widow What makes this particular case so intriguing is this Diana Cowper had planned her funeral and she was going to need it She was murdered about six hours later that same day Rather reluctantly Horowitz accepts the offer and what follows is a very clever and highly entertaining story It is a compelling mystery mixed with an interesting reflection on the process of both book writing as well as television script writing You see the real Anthony Horowitz inserts himself right into the pages of this book One could also say that The Word is Murder is a brilliant mix of both fictional and non fictional writing This book flows so smoothly at a nice brisk pace It s one that you could easily read in a day or two if you were so inclined There are plenty of clues lots of suspects and a good dose of wit Horowitz and Hawthorne don t necessarily see eye to eye when it comes to novel writing or crime solving as a result the banter between the two made for some good laughs Hawthorne is a very private man making Horowitz s job rather difficult After all a reader wants to know the nitty gritty details about the protagonist s life right At first we really only note that he is a rather unlikable fellow having been dismissed from the Metropolitan Police Force in London for reasons that are somewhat vague Hawthorne believes the reader only needs to know about the crime the victim the suspects he does not want to share his private life with the world Horowitz however wants to understand what makes him tick where he lives and what got him thrown off the force This is what the reader wants They re not called murder victim stories They re not called criminal stories They re called detective stories There s a reason for that I m taking a big risk here If you solve this crime right now I won t have anything to write about Worse than that if you don t solve it at all it ll be a complete waste of time So getting to know you matters If I know you if I can find something that makes you human at least that s a start So you can t just brush aside every uestion I ask you You can t hide behind this wallThis is very much like a classic mystery la Sherlock Holmes style despite the contemporary setting Hawthorne only shares so much of his discoveries and theories with Horowitz much like we would have seen with Watson therefore the reader is fed only little morsels at a time Never fear though as we are told early on in the novel the clues are all there if you are sharp enough to fit them together successfully I was not But that s okay the fun is in the attempt to work it all out This was my third adult novel penned by the talented Anthony Horowitz They have all been great diversions paired with excellent writing Both Magpie Murders and The House of Silk are on my favorites list This one comes very close to both but those wowed me just a wee bit I would not hesitate to recommend any of the three if you are a mystery lover I understand there is a second in the series coming out in November and I can t wait to grab it and follow of Hawthorne and Horowitz s escapades in that one I hope we can unravel some of Hawthorne s secrets next The relationship between an author and his main protagonist is a very peculiar
