's review

really liked it
bookshelves: 5000-2019

Hawthorne is back with his rather abrasive personality and his undoubted skill at finding clues and solving cases. Horowitz features again as himself acting as Hawthorne's sidekick attempting to solve not one but possibly two murders.

Having the author actively involved in his own book makes for some interesting reading. Occasionally I sat back and wondered which bits were fact and which fiction, but in the end it really does not matter. The book is totally enjoyable and very easy to read. There is a good story, well paced and interesting. The clues are all provided and although there is a surprise ending I managed to guess the culprit before Horowitz did.

Altogether an interesting and entertaining read and I am looking forward to the return of Hawthorne in #3.
