Today I’m going to pick a book I’m SO EXCITED to read. I’ve always been a huge Anthony Horowitz fan and I really enjoyed Magpie Murders [read my review here], so was excited to see he’s coming out with a new novel this month – and then even more excited to get a review copy! (‘Excited’ is a word used a lot here…)
Title: The Word is Murder
Author: Anthony Horowitz
Publisher: HQ Digital
A wealthy woman strangled six hours after she’s arranged her own funeral.
A very private detective uncovering secrets but hiding his own.
A reluctant author drawn into a story he can’t control.
What do they have in common?
Unexpected death, an unsolved mystery and a trail of bloody clues lie at the heart of Anthony Horowitz’s page-turning new thriller.
SPREAD THE WORD. THE WORD IS MURDER.
Have you heard anything about this book, or have you got it on your TBR list?
Hope you enjoy this 🙂
Thank you! I hope so too – great reviews!
I’m a third of the way through this and enjoying it. It’s clever, very clever, and funny. It’s also self-referential which might annoy some people but which I’m absolutely loving. It takes a lot to make me laugh out loud but this book has done it several times so far. I’ll be fascinated to know what you think.
Ooh no that sounds right up my street! I have loved his previous books so I think this will be a winner! Can’t wait! ????
It ended up as a 4* for me so I’ll be interested to learn what you think. Just starting to write my review now…
I finished reading The Word is Murder last week! Found it ok. Hope you like it!
Ooh I’ll look forward to your review to see what you thought too!
Currently mid way through this book. A little bit different but enjoying it so far.
Glad you’re enjoying it – I can’t wait to start it!
Another cover love for me :p
It is a great cover! ????
I won a copy of this at Harrogate but have never read anything by this author before – I’m curious to see what everyone thinks.
I used to read his teen ‘spy’ books and loved them, and really enjoy his adult novels too. Love a good mystery!
Ahh I have an arc of this waiting on my kindle and I’m super excited to read it too! Hope we both enjoy!
Ooh yes I hope so! I’ll look forward to seeing your thoughts too!
This one is definitely on my radar although I’m embarrassed to admit I still haven’t got around to the Magpie Murders which I know was terrific from the more or less unqualified high praise. It’s always good to have a new book by a favourite author to anticipate…
Ooh magpie murders certainly is a fab read – great that you have both novels by a fab author to enjoy! ???? enjoy when you do read!
I’ve got a copy of this through NetGalley too, looking forward to picking it up, like you I loved Magpie Murders and the two Sherlock Holmes books he wrote
Ahh hopefully you’ll enjoy too – I’ll look forward to seeing your review¬
This sure sounds interesting:)
