The Sentence Is Death | Anthony Horowitz

Pickpick

Book two in the Hawthorne Series; Anthony Horowitz resumes his role as ‘Watson‘ to Hawthornes ‘Holmes‘ - who could have bludgeoned the rich divorce lawyer, Richard Pryce, with a £400 bottle of wine? Will Anthony ever publish his books about Hawthorne and will Hawthorne ever stop calling him Tony?

Lucy_Anywhere Stacked! I really enjoyed the first one 4d

Spending Halloween night getting sucked into this story. I absolutely love Horowitz‘s writing, and he‘s an author I recommend as nauseam to people. This is the second of his series featuring Detective Hawthorne, an extremely politically incorrect former police detective whose wit is sometimes so dark and cynical I have to laugh out loud.

Mandoul I enjoyed Moriarty, so will need to check this out. Thanks 😀 2w

This is another great murder mystery by Anthony (Don‘t-call-me-Tony) Horowitz. I am a big fan of the Daniel Hawthorne series. I look forward to the next one...There WILL be a next one, right, Tony???

Another fun twist on the mystery genre from Horowitz. I really liked the word is murder and enjoyed this sequel as well. Horowitz himself is a character in the story playing Watson to Hawthorne‘s Sherlock. This time Hawthorne must solve the murder of a high-powered divorce attorney. Perfect for an airplane read.

Readswithcoffee I didn‘t know there was a sequel. Added to my TBR list. 2mo

It‘s been a few weeks and I still haven‘t finished this one. It‘s not because it‘s not good — it is— but more because I‘ve been so busy with work that I haven‘t even been posting much! And then there‘s the fact I‘ve been 🥴🤧😷 this week too...

As the second book in the series, I expected to learn more about the ideosyncrasies of Hawthorne. Why he is the way he is, instead I was left with more questions and frustrated at the lack if character devolopment of one of the two main characters that carried over from The Word Was Murder. Anyway, at this point, I don't know that I'll even seek out the third one. Bummer.

I love Anthony Horowitz! At this point I know I‘m going to like whatever mystery he writes, and this was no exception. Like The Word Is Murder, this book featured the author himself as a sidekick character to an ex-detective out to solve a murder. He plays around with this role as the facts about himself, his other projects, his family members, etc are true but the crime is (presumably) completely fictional. This is a clever and enjoyable book!

GloVerdino I just got The Magpie Murders and I can‘t wait to read it! I‘ve heard only good things! 4mo
LiteraryinLititz @GloVerdino I think Magpie Murders might be my favorite. 💜 Hope you love it! 4mo

I love the two main characters.
I loved this book.
I love this series.

To be honest, I thought about giving this one four stars because I wasn‘t a fan of the letter at the end, but the rest of it was so good, I decided to overlook that unnecessary coda.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I‘m enjoying this Hawthorne series. This wasn‘t quite as entertaining as the first one, but it‘s a fun mystery and I‘d be happy to see another installment come along.

Avidreader25 I really enjoyed the first, but didn‘t realize there‘s a sequel! 5mo
auntie_jenn just picked this up. i enjoyed the first two! 5mo
auntie_jenn @Avidreader25 not a series, but all the books have a literary theme, which is a departure from his previous books. 5mo

A so-so in comparison to the first book in the series. This one didn't hold the same magic for me, for some reason. It was still a quick light read, so it worked on that level.

I enjoyed the first book in this series, so I was looking forward to this one. It was fine.. nothing objectively bad or wrong with it. It followed very much the same formula as the first book. Starts with a seemingly obvious suspect... then as the investigation continues we find a bunch more possibilities.. The “mystery” just didn‘t suck me in as much as the one in the first book. Almost a pick.. but just missed the mark for me.

Vivlio_Gnosi Thank you for the insightful and informative review. 6mo

Thanks to @Graciouswarriorprincess posting her grabs from #NetGalley , I discovered this one from Horowitz is now available for requesting. I unashamedly squealed when I requested it and immediately received a download (I have no idea how I could be so lucky!). I just may have to read this as one of my #ARCMadDash titles!

I‘m on a London crime binge this weekend. Listening to this (my second in the series this week) and watching Luther (you gotta love a bit of Idris) I haven‘t watched it before so I have sooo much of it to binge on. I‘m not sure if my US buddies have it on Tv over there? Worth a watch if so.

The characters are all so believable, I really want to know more about Hawthorne and his background as I‘m sure there‘s more to come. The story itself is fast paced and with its touches of humour is totally engaging and has the great twists and turns of a classic whodunnit. I can thoroughly recommend it.

“It‘s been shut down now, part of a brilliant scheme to close half of London‘s police stations and reduce uniformed officers on the street that has seen a surge in knife crime and made it impossible to use a mobile phone without the risk of it being snatched by thieves on motorbikes.”.....nice little topical, political statement....

This is a really original novel. Anthony Horowitz has put himself as a character in the story, working with a PI to solve a murder. It mentions tv shows he worked on, like Foyles War too, it‘s a fun read and enjoying it so far
