The Sentence is Death

Anthony Horowitz

'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. Strange circumstances pile up. 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...


Screenwriter Anthony Horowitz (Foyle’s War; Midsomer Murders) takes centre stage as himself in this page-turner of a book. Playing Watson to grizzled ex-cop, now private gumshoe Daniel Hawthorne, Horowitz must solve the Case of the Bludgeoned Barrister. Funny, tense, and highly original, we loved it. More Hawthorne/Horowitz, please, Anthony.
