    Death, deception, and a detective with quite a lot to hide stalk the pages of Anthony Horowitz s brilliant new murder mystery, the second in the bestselling series starring Private Investigator Daniel Hawthorne _________________________ You shouldn t be here It s too late

    These, heard over the phone, were the last recorded words of successful celebrity divorce lawyer Richard Pryce, found bludgeoned to death in his bachelor pad with a bottle of wine a 1982 Chateau Lafite worth 3,000, to be precise.

    Odd, considering he didn t drink Why this bottle And why those words And why was a three digit number painted on the wall by the killer And, most importantly, which of the man s many, many enemies did the deed

    Baffled, the police are forced to bring in Private Investigator Daniel Hawthorne and his sidekick, the author Anthony, who s really getting rather good at this murder investigation business.

    But as Hawthorne takes on the case with characteristic relish, it becomes clear that he, too, has secrets to hide As our reluctant narrator becomes ever embroiled in the case, he realises that these secrets must be exposed even at the risk of death _____________________________

    • Yeah, great read This author, I like him Not per definition a crime reader I am, but from Magpie Murders I m kinda hooked on Horowitz Utterly entertaining Witty, clever, easy read whodunnit , though I did not see it all coming 4.3 maybe Loved it Let 3 on private investigator Hawthorne aka Holmes and his assistant Watson come soon This series is recommended


    • My second close encounter with Mr Horowitz was as good as the first one, and I m already looking forward to another one An enjoyable novel with a grand mystery and a bottle of a terribly expensive wine in the background.


    • 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 Hawt [...]

    • Another witty crime book from Horowitz If you liked The Word Is Murder, you will enjoy this one too I thought it was better than the first, the case being cohesive.There were convenient coincidences after all, but still an enjoyable read.


    • Anthony Horowitz never disappoints Richard Pryce, a high profile divorce attorney, is murdered in his home, bludgeoned to death with a two thousand quid bottle of wine, which is strange in itself as the victim didn t drink alcohol Even stranger, written on the wall near the body are the numerals 182 What does the message mean Hawthorne and Horowitz are called to investigate As per usual I was hooked from the onset, and couldn t put the book down Interesting and engagi [...]
