Festive Felony: Anthony Horowitz Recommends the Best Crime Books of 2017

For Anthony Horowitz, time spent in the company of a good crime novel this year has had to take second place to busily writing his own second crime novel, The Word is Murder - the first in a new series following the bestselling Magpie Murders. Nevertheless, he’s crossed paths with some unmissable crime fiction this year and he’s chosen the highlights of his findings exclusively for Waterstones. From contemporary thrillers to historical mysteries it’s got something for everyone; perfect for those readers for whom Christmas wouldn’t be complete without a murder or two under the tree.

Never Say Die: Anthony Horowitz's Alex Rider Lives Again

'It was jammed with action sequences and had a terrific new villain... before I knew what I was doing, I had sketched out a new novel. '

Alex Rider has been amassing legions of fans since he first stormed into being in the epic series debut Stormbreaker. So, when Anthony Horowitz announced that his ninth Rider novel, Scorpia Rising, was to be Alex’s final mission, readers were left on tenterhooks about the fate of the teenage spy. When it comes to espionage fiction, however, you should never say never and now, five years later, Alex Rider is back in explosive form in Never Say Die. Here, exclusively for Watertsones, Anthony Horowitz explains why he just couldn’t leave his hero behind.
