Waterstones Says

A woman orders her own funeral, six hours later she is strangled to death. A devilish mystery ensues for Horowitz’s Holmseian sleuth to unravel. A masterclass in classic detection.

A wealthy woman strangled six hours after she's arranged her own funeral.  A very private detective uncovering secrets but hiding his own. A reluctant author drawn into a story he can't control. What do they have in common?

Unexpected death, an unsolved mystery and a trail of bloody clues lie at the heart of Anthony Horowitz's page-turning new thriller.

Spread the word, The Word is Murder!

Anthony Horowitz is the author of the bestselling teen spy series, Alex Rider, and is also responsible for creating and writing some of the UK's most loved and successful TV series, including Midsomer Murders and Foyle's War.

He has also written two highly acclaimed Sherlock Holmes novels, The House of Silk and Moriarty; two James Bond novels, Trigger Mortis and Forever and a Day; and his most recent stand-alone novel, Magpie Murders, was a Top Five Sunday Times bestseller.

The Word is Murder is the first in a series of crime novels starring Detective Michael Hawthorne.

MEDIA REVIEWS

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
