The Sentence is Death

A mind-bending murder mystery from the bestselling author of THE WORD IS MURDER

‘My favourite literary hero at the moment is Anthony Horowitz’ – SHARI LAPENA, author of
The Couple Next Doorand
A Stranger in the House

_________________________

Death, deception, and a detective with quite a lot to hide: the second novel in the bestselling series starring Private Investigator Daniel Hawthorne.

_________________________

‘You shouldn’t be here. It’s too late…’

These were Richard Pryce's last words, overheard moments before the celeb divorce lawyer was bludgeoned to death with a £3,000 bottle of wine.

Strange circumstances pile up. Pryce was teetotal, so why this bottle? Why those words? Why did the killer paint a number on his wall? And, most importantly, which of the man’s many, many enemies did the deed?

Baffled, the police are forced to bring in
Private Investigator Daniel Hawthorne and his sidekick, the author
Anthony, who’s really getting rather good at this murder investigation business.

But as Hawthorne takes on the case with characteristic relish, it becomes clear that he, too, has secrets to hide. Anthony knows they must be exposed – even at the risk of
death…

Er hat sich in die Sümpfe des "True Crime" Genres gewagt und sich selbst als Charakter in sein Buch geschrieben - und er hat es geschafft daraus einen Bestseller zu machen, der den Titel verdient. "The Sentence is Death" ist der zweite Band in dieser Reihe mit Ermittler Daniel Hawthorne und zuerst weiß Anthony Horowitz gar nicht, ob der neue Fall überhaupt genug Stoff für ein neues Buch bietet - doch er wird schnell vom Gegenteil überzeugt. Ein Must-Read für alle True Crime Fans!
