‘The Word is Murder’ by Anthony Horowitz

A woman is found murdered six hours after arranging her own funeral. Did she know she was going to be murdered? Did she arrange her own death? This unusual thriller begins in the first person, in a direct and wholly unconventional style, Anthony Horowitz relates the story of a murder case from his own perspective. Horowitz works with Detective Daniel Hawthorne, a crime consultant on a TV drama, but this well-worn man has a deft knowledge of crime and a set of observational skills that make him a fine Sherlock next to Horowitz’s Watson. This is the first in a series of novels that I would recommend to any fan of Horowitz as it offers such a witty and charming perspective on his working life as a TV writer (Foyle’s War) as well as being a gripping thriller.
