“A wealthy woman strangled six hours after she’s arranged her own funeral.
A very private detective uncovering secrets but hiding his own.
A reluctant author drawn into a story he can’t control.
What do they have in common?
Unexpected death, an unsolved mystery and a trail of bloody clues lie at the heart of Anthony Horowitz’s page-turning new thriller.
SPREAD THE WORD. THE WORD IS MURDER.”
What is this book all about?
This is a first narrative book starring the author Anthony Horowitz’s, who is reluctantly working with a private investigator named Hawthrone. They join together to investigate the murder of Diana Cowper, who happened to die just six hours after staging her own funeral.
Hawthrone wants Anthony Horowitz to shadow him during the investigation, he wants Anthony to write a book showing him in action, and this is how their adventure begins.
My take on the book
The whole story is fast paced and a real page turner. With a mix of mystery suspense and thriller. This is one of the most unique books I’ve read, it has so many twist and turns that it will keep the reader guessing to the very end. I have never read first narrative book. So this was my first and I am highly impressed.
Its a fabulous blend of fact and fiction, I highly recommended this book to everyone.
