BOOK BEGINNINGS ON FRIDAYS
Thank you for joining me on Book Beginnings on Fridays to share the opening sentence (or so) from the book you are reading this week. You can also share from a book that caught your fancy, even if you are not reading it right now.
MY BOOK BEGINNING
"I'm sorry, Hawthorne. But the answer's no. Our deal is over."
-- from The Twist of a Knife by Anthony Horowitz.
This is the latest -- the fourth -- book in Anthony Horowitz's "Hawthorne & Horowitz" series. I loved the first three and this one is just as much fun. The premise is that Anthony Horowitz is a character in the books, playing himself. Detective Hawthorne, a retired police office brought in to consult on cases, hires Horowitz to write "true crime" books about the murder cases he's working on. I love them!

MY FRIDAY 56
From The Twist of a Knife:
"But you've got to see things from my point of view. You can't have a main character who doesn't give anything away, and frankly, being with you, I feel I'm up against a brick wall.”
FROM THE PUBLISHER'S DESCRIPTION
In New York Times bestselling author Anthony Horowitz’s ingenious fourth literary whodunit following The Word is Murder, The Sentence is Death, and A Line to Kill, Horowitz becomes the prime suspect in a murder investigation—and only one man can prove his innocence: his newly estranged partner in solving crime, Detective Hawthorne.
I think I'd love this series. I just need to make the time to read them. Along with a thousand other books.ReplyDelete
I haven't read any of the books from this series. I like the quotes!ReplyDelete
I didn't realize Anthony Horowitz wrote adult books until I saw the Netflix series made from one of his books. Based on my experience with that series, I think I'd like this author.ReplyDelete
This sounds like a really great series. The excerpts are intriguing. Have a great weekend!ReplyDelete
