can’t controlWhat do they have in comm 35 starsThis book is structured like a Sherlock Holmes story in which Dr Watson accompanies Sherlock Holmes on an investigation then chronicles the case In The Word is Murder Anthony Horowitz ostensibly accompanies detective Daniel Hawthorne on an investigation then writes a book this one about the case As the novel opens wealthy middle aged Londoner Diana Cowper goes to an undertaker to plan her funeral so when the time comes it will go off exactly as she wantswith her chosen hymns and music The funeral will occur much sooner than expected though because Diana is strangled in her apartment a few hours later Diana s death which is clearly a murder draws extra attention for two reasons a decade ago Diana s car hit twin eight year old boys Jimmy and Jeremy Godwin killing Jimmy and leaving Jeremy brain damaged In addition Diana is the mother of the famous actor Damian Cowper who s currently a big sensation in America The cops in London s Metropolitan Police Service MPS need Diana s case solved fast So an MPS official prevails on a former police detective Daniel Hawthorne a brilliant sleuth who was fired for bad behavior to consult on the investigation Hawthorne agrees and to make an extra buck asks writer Anthony Horowitz to shadow his probe and pen a book for which they ll share the profits 5050 Horowitz author of the Alex Rider series for children and several mysteries for adults as well as the creator of the TV series Foyle s War and Midsomer Murders is reluctant to embark on a non fiction tome but agrees in the end Anthony HorowitzHorowitz is immediately impressed with Hawthorne s ability to wrest information from almost imperceptible clues just like Sherlock HolmesHowever the writer is put off by the gumshoe s personality since Hawthorne is abrupt rude intolerant and secretive Moreover Hawthorne never picks up the check for drinks meals train tickets taxi fares etcseriously draining Horowitz s wallet In any case Horowitz accompanies Hawthorne as he runs around uestioning people including the undertaker and his assistant who were the last people to see Diana alive Judith and Alan Godwin who are still distraught about their deadinjured sonsand think Diana got off too lightly the judge who gave Diana a slap on the wrist witnesses to the automobile accident ten years ago Diana s actor son Damian a conceited snob who abuses his girlfriend and others Hawthorne constantly warns Horowitz to just shut up and take notes during interviews but the author who thinks of himself as than just a tape recorder throws in the occasional uestion anywaywhich seriously annoys the detective In fact unlike Watson and Holmes Horowitz and Hawthorne have a very contentious relationship At one point Horowitz tries to skive off an interview because he has an important business meeting with legendary filmmakers Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson Hawthorne blithely interrupts the conference and drags Horowitz off much to the writer s chagrin In the end the crime is solved and Horowitz and Hawthorne warm up to each other a tad in fact Hawthorne pays the writer a small compliment to Horowitz s immense pleasure The story is structured like an intricate puzzle and I didn t guess the murderer until the end I enjoyed this well written novel and highly recommend it to fans of traditional murder mysteries FYI In an interview with NPR Anthony Horowitz said that inserting himself into the book as a character was an attempt to turn the murder mystery format upside down and that he was very careful not to give himself the best lines but to give them to Daniel Hawthorne instead Horowitz also notes that his mysteries are an homage to Agatha Christie but he has the advantage of being able to insert modern technology like texts and emails I ve finished several of Horowitz s mysteries and look forward to reading You can follow my reviews at Triptyk uncovering secrets but hiding his ownA
