A mix of fact and fiction makes for a clever, well-written mystery.

The Word Is Murder - Anthony Horowitz

If you like clever, well-written murder mysteries you’ll enjoy The Word is Murder.

 

An author is recruited by a discredited detective who in turn has been hired as a consultant by his former employer to solve a puzzling murder.

 

The sleuth wants the writer to tell the story about how he solves the murder and in turn share the rewards of what he’s sure will a bestseller. The author is not so sure–about the detective or the project.

 

Author Anthony Horowitz mixes fact with fiction and real people with imaginary characters to weave a story that has plenty of twists and turns.

 

The plot becomes a bit convoluted near the end but not so much as to dismiss it as contrived.
