If you enjoyed BBC's Sherlock, you'll LOVE The Word is Murder. _________________Buried secrets, murder and a trail of bloody clues lie at the heart of Anthony Horowitz's page-turning new detective series. SHE PLANNED HER OWN FUNERAL. BUT DID SHE ARRANGE HER OWN MURDER?A woman is strangled six hours after organising her own funeral. Did she know she was going to die? Did she recognise her killer?Daniel Hawthorne, a recalcitrant detective with secrets of his own, is on the case, and he's found himself a sidekick - popular crime novelist Anthony Horowitz, who's struck a deal with Hawthorne to turn his latest case into a true crime bestseller. But the case is twistier and bloodier than Hawthorne had bargained for, and the unlikely duo of detective and writer find themselves neck deep in danger. When the written word is your only defence, you know you're in trouble when the word is murder... _________________'Raises the game-playing to Olympic level' Guardian Books of the Year'A real page-turner.
