The Word is Murder

by Anthony Horowitz

The Word Is Murder is a 2017 mystery novel by British author Anthony Horowitz and the first novel in the Hawthorne and Horowitz series. The story focuses on solving the murder of a woman who was involved in a hit-and-run accident ten years previously.

Anthony, the narrator (who shares many of the characteristics of the author), is approached by ex-Detective Inspector Hawthorne, with whom he worked on a television series. Hawthorne, who is need of money, proposes that Anthony write a book about him and one of the cases he is working on in exchange for a 50/50 split of the advance and royalties. The case involves a woman who, six hours after planning her own funeral, is found murdered. Initially reluctant, Anthony agrees and proceeds to document Hawthorne’s solution of the case.

Book Club will meet in the Lower Level, SPL- This book club meets every second Thursday of the month.

Copies of the book will be available for check out at the circulation desk with a valid library card.
