A Line to Kill from the global bestselling author of Moonflower Murders

A Line to Kill from the global bestselling author of Moonflower Murders

Author: Anthony Horowitz Format: Hardback Release Date: 19/08/2021

'Witty, wry, clever, a fabulous detective story and perfect summer reading' KATE MOSSE 'Funny, intriguing, thrilling and thought-provoking: a marvellous mystery' ADAM HAMDY 'Horowitz ... playing Watson to Hawthorne's Sherlock, serves up a pretty kettle of fish, full of red herrings' THE TIMES 'With a colourful cast of characters, clever red herrings, a locked-room puzzle and chalk-and-cheese banter between the sleuths, Horowitz keeps the reader entertained and guessing throughout, in a wonderful take on the classic crime thriller' INDEPENDENT ________________________________________ 'I couldn't see the sea from my bedroom but I could hear the waves breaking in the distance. They reminded me that I was on a tiny island. And I was trapped.' There has never been a murder on Alderney. It's a tiny island, just three miles long and a mile and a half wide. The perfect location for a brand-new literary festival. Private Investigator Daniel Hawthorne has been invited to talk about his new book. The writer, Anthony Horowitz, travels with him. Very soon they discover that all is not as it should be. Alderney is in turmoil over a planned power line that will cut through it, desecrating a war cemetery and turning neighbour against neighbour. The visiting authors - including a blind medium, a French performance poet and a celebrity chef - seem to be harbouring any number of unpleasant secrets. When the festival's wealthy sponsor is found brutally killed, Alderney goes into lockdown and Hawthorne knows that he doesn't have to look too far for suspects. There's no escape. The killer is still on the island. And there's about to be a second death... _____________________________________________________________________ 'There are some delicious comic moments as they encounter their fellow participants, including a loud-mouthed TV chef and a volatile French performance poet. A party thrown by one of the festival's sponsors ends in murder, but the best thing about this diverting novel is Horowitz's stream of self-deprecating observations about being a writer.' THE SUNDAY TIMES 'A golden-age whodunnit on steroids' KIRKUS REVIEWS 'There's no way out in this compelling whodunnit' WOMAN'S OWN 'One of my all-time favourite authors' RYAN TUBRIDY 'An irresistible whodunnit' SAGA 'Providing contemporary crime fiction with a much-needed revitalisation' CRIME FICTION LOVER 'A classic closed-room mystery with great characters and plenty of red herrings' CHOICE 'A clever light-hearted tale infused with the author's customary wit and panache. Horowitz's legion of fans will love unpicking the red herrings and connecting the clues here' NEWBOOKS MAGAZINE 'Horowitz's witty and crafty narrative is as evocative of the detachment and claustrophobia of rural isolation as last year's Moonflower Murders . . . Unputdownable stuff' THE CONVERSATION 'A cosy mystery echoing Agatha Christie' IRISH INDEPENDENT

A labyrinth of clues. A mystery novel hiding a deadly secret. A killer with a fiendish plot: a brilliantly intricate and original thriller from the bestselling author of Magpie Murders _____________________________________________ 'Absolutely loved it. So clever, just masterful stuff.' Richard Osman 'A beautiful puzzle: fiendishly clever and hugely entertaining. A masterpiece.' Lucy Foley, author of The Hunting Party Retired publisher Susan Ryeland is running a small hotel on a Greek island with her long-term boyfriend. But life isn't as idyllic as it should be: exhausted by the responsibility of making everything work on an island where nothing ever does, Susan is beginning to miss her literary life in London - even though her publishing career once entangled her in a lethal literary murder plot. So when an English couple come to visit with tales of a murder that took place in a hotel the same day their daughter Cecily was married there, Susan can't help but find herself fascinated. And when they tell her that Cecily has gone missing a few short hours after reading Atticus Pund Takes The Case, a crime novel Susan edited some years previously, Susan knows she must return to London to find out what has happened. The clues to the murder and to Cecily's disappearance must lie within the pages of this novel.

Richard Osman, author of The Thursday Murder Club 'We all want to go away on foreign holidays - but I was reading Anthony Horowitz's new book based in Greece and oh my God I could taste the wine, I could see the sea, I could smell that lovely dusky air! ... It's so much fun, I'm absolutely loving it' Ryan Tubridy, RTE Radio One 'Showcases Horowitz's full battalion of strengths: the whiplash plotting, the leather-smooth prose, the bold energy and, above all, the bright spark of joy that ignites the best fiction. Sophisticated, literate novels aren't supposed to be so much fun.'

And the perfect jumping-on point for newcomers.' The Sun 'It's a complex plot, a novel within a novel, where the reader gets to grapple with the whodunnit both in the main narrative and through an entirely separate detective story[...] They are both gripping reads' Irish Times 'So clever, a story within a story within a story. A triumph.' Kate Mosse 'A masterpiece by an author at the top of his genre.' Adam Hamdy
