Reviews

"Fans of traditional puzzle mysteries will be enthralled." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Horowitz succeeds on all levels with book two in the Detective Daniel Hawthorne series . . . the overall voice of the series is fresh and original, Horowitz writing with the effortless élan that distinguishes all his work." -- Booklist

"Except for Jeffrey Deaver and Sophie Hannah, no one currently working the field has anywhere near this much ingenuity to burn." -- Kirkus Reviews

"The Sentence Is Death . . . may just be one of summer's greatest, guiltiest pleasures . . . Pray for solitary confinement, because you'll want to read this one straight through and uninterrupted." -- New York Journal of Books

"Horowitz mimics Golden Age authors (Christie, Allingham, Marsh, Sayers) so well in his books' scope and denouéments that fans of both puzzle and cozy mysteries will savor the balance of clues." -- NPR

"The Sentence Is Death is...fast-paced, lively ... there are twists and turns and unexpected developments. The fact-fiction blurring continues to the last page." -- Minneapolis Star Tribune

"Horowitz shows no signs of ceding the spotlight. He's having too much fun and, as a result, so are his readers." -- Los Angeles Book Review
