    Yeah, great read! This author, I like him. Not per definition a crime reader I am, but from Magpie Murders I'm kinda hooked on Horowitz. Utterly entertaining. Witty, clever, easy read & 'whodunnit', though I did not see it all coming... 4.3 maybe more. Loved it. Let #3 on private i...

    I've not read THE WORD IS MURDER, book one in this series, but I definitely want to after reading this one! To be honest didn't I know a damn thing about the story before I started to read/listen to this book (yes I tend to mix it when I have the chance, listen at work, read and l...

    Full review here Sentence 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 b...

    Immensely enjoyable and very clever crime thriller in which the author plays a most unusual role. Every bit as good as The Word Is Murder. Roll on book 3. Review to follow shortly on For Winter Nights. ...

    I adored, ?The Word is Murder,? the first in the Daniel Hawthorne series, and was delighted to receive the second, ?The Silence is Death,? for review. As before, Anthony Horowitz, or ?Tony,? as Hawthorne calls him, is very much telling the story as himself. Horowitz is work...

    Jolly good fun! The more books I read by this author, the more of them I want to read. No matter who's involved - Sherlock Holmes, James Bond or, in this instance, the author himself - they're clever, witty and thoroughly engrossing. Throw in a little murder, and it just doesn't get...

    I wanted to like this more than I actually did as I think Mr Horowitz is a fine author. Sadly this felt like a rehash of the previous book in the series. Having said that, if you'd come to this book cold and read it as a standalone, it would be perfectly fine so perhaps I'm being o...

    3.5 stars rounded up. I very much enjoyed the first book and this one was also a good read. His style in this series is very chatty, like he is actually in the room telling you about his day. I?m still confused about how much of this is true.. thanks to Netgalley for an arc of this ...

    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 b...

    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...

    Book reviews on www.snazzybooks.com The Sentence is Death is another brilliant novel from one of my favourite authors, Anthony Horowitz. I particularly enjoy this series as it's definitely different from most other 'crime' novels; I love the self-aware style of writing. Anthony Hor...

    I like Anthony Horowitz books and this one was pretty different to the others I've read. Basically it's more of a slow-burn mystery. More of an Agatha Christie or Sherlock, old-style detective story. The core mystery seems to be based on a true story, though it was difficult to ...

    Horowitz has kept the promise he created in his first book in this series, alive and well in the second one. My only sadness is that I have no more Daniel Hawthorne to read at the moment and must wait for 'Tony' to write some more. The way he mixes up reality and fiction has me wi...

    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 impress...

    If you a) like a baffling mystery and b) you?re a fan of Hercule Poirot then c) it is dead certain this novel will please you. I didn?t know at first but The Sentence is Death is actually the second in a series following PI Daniel Hawthorne and the writer, Anthony. That?s exac...

    After falling in love with Magpie Murders, I have now read both of the Anthony Horowitz/Hawthorne books. I love the way AH plays with the line between reality and fiction?making himself a central character and using other real people (not just his family). Even the acknowledgements h...

    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 readi...

    Another witty crime book from Horowitz. If you liked The Word Is Murder, you will enjoy this one too. I thought it was better than the first, the case being more cohesive. There were convenient coincidences after all, but still an enjoyable read. ...

    Visit the London locations in the novel I remember the feeling I had when I read the first of the novels where Anthony H appears as a character in his own novel. Wow I thought, did that just happen? Well it did and this is a second one just as good as the first with a twisty tal...

    If you?ve not read The Word is Murder yet then I highly recommend you do so before starting this book. The narrative is so unexpectedly crafted that I don?t think you could just jump into book 2 of this series without reading the first book to feature Hawthorne, a unique detectiv...

    Private Investigator Daniel Hawthorne returns in the sequel to The Word Is Murder. Once again he teams up with sidekick Anthony Horowitz (the author himself) and once again they are on the trail of a murderer. As with their previous adventure there is plenty of humour, most of it at t...

    The Sentence is Death, the second novel to feature ex-policeman and Private Investigator Daniel Hawthorne, has an old-school, authentic atmosphere to it much like the crime classics of Agatha Christie and Arthur Conan Doyle. Horowitz focusses on mystery, suspense, intrigue and keeping ...

    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. ...

    My first five-star-book in 2019 and I absolutely loved it! The story is gripping, I had no clue who the murderer was throughout the book but in the end it all made perfect sense, just how a good detective story should be! I don't know why but I just love the way Anthony Horowitz tel...

    4.5 stars Once again (again), Horowitz does not disappoint. I can honestly say that I will read whatever this man writes because he has a way of writing that is so hard not to love. It?s impossible. Both Horowitz and Hawthorne are in this novel, and I just want to say that th...

    Anthony Horowitz never disappoints! Richard Pryce, a high profile divorce attorney, is murdered in his home, bludgeoned to death with a two thousand quid bottle of wine, which is strange in itself as the victim didn?t drink alcohol. Even stranger, written on the wall near the body...
