's review

it was amazing

Private Investigator Daniel Hawthorne returns in the sequel to The Word Is Murder. Once again he teams up with sidekick Anthony Horowitz (the author himself) and once again they are on the trail of a murderer.
As with their previous adventure there is plenty of humour, most of it at the author's expense! I love the eloquent plotting & the nice mixture of what I feel must be the "real" Anthony Horowitz & the "fictional" one. However, what I like most is that this novel is quite simply Fun with a capital F!!

Quotes Bill Liked

Anthony Horowitz
“I've met police dogs with more intelligence than those two. You could tell them everything we've done, down to the last word, and they'd still end up running around in a circle, sniffing each other's arses.”
Anthony Horowitz, The Sentence is Death

Bill Lynas Hope you enjoy it, Dita. It's rare to read a crime story with so much humour in it.
