The Word is Murder, Anthony Horowitz

Daniel Hawthorne is a disgraced detective. He ‘consults’ with the Metropolitan police helping to solve their more unusual cases. He thinks writer Anthony Horowitz should write a book about him and split the profits 50/50.

Horowitz, isn’t too fond of Hawthorne and almost rejects his proposal out of hand but the case Hawthorne is investigating is intriguing. A well-to-do woman visits a funeral home to plan her service, six hours later she’s murdered. Her famous son, actor Damian Cowper is coming home for the funeral and there are suspects galore for Hawthorne to question using his Northern ‘charm school’ technique. Will Hawthorne solve the case before someone, possibly Horowitz, attempts to shove him down a flight of stairs?
