ONLINE: Anthony Horowitz - "The Twist of a Knife" with Shari Lapena
Anthony Horowitz presents The Twist of a Knife, his fourth literary whodunit following The Word is Murder, The Sentence Is Death, and A Line to Kill.

ABOUT THE BOOK
“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)
Thrown into prison and fearing for both his personal future and his writing career, Anthony is the prime suspect and when a second theatre critic is found to have died in mysterious circumstances, the net closes in. Ever more desperate, he realizes that only one man can help him. But will Hawthorne take the call? With a cast of characters that all have a motive, The Twist of a Knife has distinct echoes of Agatha Christie, which will delight Anthony Horowitz fans and new readers alike.
