#BookReview: The Word Is Murder by @AnthonyHorowitz @HarperCollins

36204075My Review…

Who plans their own funeral 6 hours before their murder? 

I loved playing detective alongside Ex-DI Hawthorne and trying to make sense of the growing trail of leads.  What was the motive?  Did the victim know she was in danger? What is going on? Who left an important clue ? Did I catch that clue? Nope

Horowitz plants himself in the story as well. He is a fictional character working with the detective as a writer to document the case as a true crime novel.

This was ridiculously entertaining and I flew through it, trying to spy the murderer the entire way through. Hawthorne was like the master murder solver and Horowitz was always questioning his tactics and getting on his nerves.

A good old-fashioned murder mystery with a dash of modern day life to give it a contemporary feel. Brilliant! I adore a twisty who-dunnit!
