About the Author
One of the UK's most prolific and successful writers, Anthony Horowitz may have committed more (fictional) murders than any other living author. His novels include Magpie Murders, Trigger Mortis, Moriarty, The House of Silk, and the bestselling Alex Rider series for young adults. As a television screenwriter he created the series Midsomer Murders and the BAFTA-winning Foyle's War, which were both featured on PBS's Masterpiece Mystery! He lives in London.
"This humorous homage to golden age closed-circle mysteries is not to be missed." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Playful ... An efficiently old-fashioned whodunit with all the surprises you'd expect." -- Kirkus Reviews
"Excellent . . . . Readers of character-driven novels will love the twists and turns of this Agatha Christie-style mystery that leads to an unexpected reveal. Perfect for fans of G. M. Malliet, Elly Griffiths, and Richard Osman." -- Library Journal (starred review)
"Horowitz continues to delight in mixing real life (e.g., Horowitz's play Mindgame was staged in London) and fiction, as well as in juxtaposing Horowitz (the character) as nebbish against the always-three-stepsahead Hawthorne. Not to worry, their relationship isn't over quite yet. There's much more to discover, and readers will be waiting eagerly for more from one of the best mystery writers around." -- Booklist (starred review)
" . . . .Gleefully witty. . . ." -- Tom Nolan for The Wall Street Journal
"The thing I most like about the mysteries of Anthony Horowitz -- besides their smooth writing, skillful plotting and delightful sense of humor -- is this: Horowitz gives you clues. He lays them all out there, and if you are sharp and paying attention, you can solve them. I assume. I never have." -- Minneapolis Star Tribune
"An adventure that will enchant mystery lovers, Anglophiles and theater buffs."
-- Washington Post
"The Twist of a Knife is consistently, delightfully entertaining, with Horowitz's own theatrical experience providing just the right amount of bittersweet bite." -- Air Mail
"Fall is the time to read a mystery novel, and Anthony Horowitz consistently delivers a great whodunnit." -- Town & Country
