    Horowitz and Hawthorne are perfection together I can t get enough of this series I love how the author has put himself into the story as the narrator the Watson to Hawthorne s Holmes or as I like to think of them, the Felix Unger to his Oscar Madison Horowitz comes off as honest, sympathetic, earnest and willing to poke fun at himself Hawthorne is decidedly uncharming, brash, politically incorrect and I kinda have a soft spot for him There is definitely a back story there and I am here for it I m looking forward to peeling back all those grumpy, secretive layers I see you Hawthorne and there is definitely than meets the eye In The Sentence is Death Hawthorne has once again been called in by the police to help investigate the murder of a high profile divorce attorney He quickly recognizes this will be a perfect opportunity for Tony Horowitz to write book 2 Although I did figure out the whodunnit early on I enjoyed the story immensely and how it tied so many people, places and things together It definitely made me doubt myself a few times but in the end, I proved better at solving the crime than poor Tony he never does seem to get it right Thank goodness the police have Hawthorne He may not be an active police off...

    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...

    Keep in mind One lie can ruin a thousand truths.Anthony Horowitz opens the heavy wrought iron gates on another stellar mystery that feels circa 1930 Anthony becomes a key figure in his own novel as he takes on the role of himself Horowitz, you see, is the famed writer of Foyle s War, an on going successful television saga in the UK He s in the middle of filming a crucial scene on the streets of London when a cab pulls up and spoils the shot Anthony recognizes the man who has just exited the cab and is running towards him Let s introduce you to former Detective Inspector Daniel Hawthorne Hawthorne is now a for hire crime expert who works on random cases He has convinced Anthony to write his biography That entails riding shotgun with Hawthorne as he attempts to solve a case Anthony signed on the dotted line with the buzz of crime murder intrigue dancing staccato in his heart Later, his common sense caught up with this pending madness The body of an affluent divorce lawyer has been found in the posh section of Hampstead Heath A teetotaler by choice, Richard Pryce is found to have been blungeoned with an expensive bottle of wine at the back of his once stately head The number 182 ...

    Full review hereSentence is Death starts with the murder of a divorce lawyer and Horowitz sets to write a second book of this case alongside working with Hawthorne The victim had been threatened by a well known, award winning and fiercely literary writer and his husband seems to be hiding things Of course, there are also issues from the past that bubbles up in surface of the case Who visited the victim before he died, and why is there a numbe...

    The rehearsal was stressful While attempting to shoot a scene of London Street circa 1947 for an episode of Foyle s War, there were weather issues and the police would not allow filming before 10 AM Adding to film writer Anthony Horowitz s woes, Detective Inspector Daniel Hawthorne drove on set, music blasting Hawthorne told Anthony that high profile divorce lawyer Richard Pryce had been murdered I though you would want to write about it Having made a three book deal to write about Hawthorne s cases, Horowitz had no choice but to work with this ex copper who swore all the timesmoked and called me him Tony Ex detective Hawthorne was hired by the Metropolitan Police to assist with this difficult case much to the dismay of Detective Cara Grunshaw, a scowling, hostile, and unpleasant woman She wanted all the accolades despite the input of others Anthony Horowitz, the author, inserts himself into the investigation acting as a veritable Doc Watson to Hawthorne s Sherlock Holmes.The crime Richard Pryce was found bludgeoned to death in his dwelling He had been hit on the head with an expensive bottle of wine then stabbed repeatedly with the jagged edged neck of the bottle Why did Pryce, a teetotaler, possess this wine He had recently completed divorce proceedings favoring Adrian Lockwood, an expensively dressed, pony tailed, property...

    In the first book in this series, The Word Is Murder, Horowitz took the unusual step of placing himself in the book as the narrator, melding his real life with this fictional life as a writer engaged to write about PI Daniel Hawthorne s cases This made for delightful and amusing reading as Horowitz stumbles through the case in the wake of Hawthorne s somewhat astute detective work I wasn t sure how well this would work in a second episode but am happy to report that if anything it worked even better the second time around.The case this time involves a high profile divorce lawyer, Richard Pryce, a teetotaler bashed with an expensive bottle of wine and then stabbed to death with broken glass from the bottle On the wall above the body the killer painted the number 182 in green paint At the time Pryce had been involved in a major case involving a celebrity writer, Akira Anno, who immediately becomes their main suspect, as she was recently witnessed pouring a glass of wine over Pryce s head in a popular restaurant and then threatening to hit him with the bottle Or could that just be what the police are meant to think...

    This is the 2nd novel in the Daniel Hawthorne, Private Investigator series by Anthony Horowitz.I have not read the 1st book The Word is Murder nor in fact any other books by this author but quickly realised once I started this novel that times were going to change I was so impressed and enjoyed reading this book that I had already purchased a couple of the authors other books before finishing it.For me the book had a feel of an older style of detective novel, maybe an Agatha Christie or likely Arthur Conan Doyle Witty, well plotted and some excellent characters I found the book a light read but intriguing and very enjoyable.The setting of the novel is a little bit unusual with the author being one of the main characters In the novel Anthony Horowitz is invited to write about the retired detective Daniel Hawthorne who still helps the Police solve difficult cases Anth...
