How do you solve a murder... when everyone has the same motive? From global bestselling Anthony Horowitz, a brilliantly entertaining new mystery in the Hawthorne and Horowitz series. 'Easily the greatest of our crime writers' Sunday Times '[Horowitz is] a master puppeteer' The Times 'Incredible plotting, richly layered and wonderfully intricate. I inhaled it' Liz Nugent 'A clever murder mystery...playful and twisty. Nobody does this crime fiction better than Anthony Horowitz' Crime Time FM 'Spectacularly good fun, wickedly clever, with a pinch of the macabre, this is everything you could wish for from one of our top crime writers.' The Sun 'Another delightful outing with Hawthorne and Horowitz. Each one is more inventive than the last. Keep them coming!' Shari Lapena 'Anthony Horowitz is a national treasure. Close to Death is his best book yet, a perfect combination of Agatha Christie and P.D. James' Ragnar Jonasson _____________ Richmond Upon Thames is one of the most desirable areas to live in London. And Riverview Close - a quiet, gated community - seems to offer its inhabitants the perfect life. At least it does until Giles Kenworthy moves in with his wife and noisy children, his four gas-guzzling cars, his loud parties and his plans for a new swimming pool in his garden. His neighbours all have a reason to hate him and are soon up in arms. When Kenworthy is shot dead with a crossbow bolt through his neck, all of them come under suspicion and his murder opens the door to lies, deception and further death. The police are baffled. Reluctantly, they call in former Detective Daniel Hawthorne. But even he is faced with a seemingly impossible puzzle. How do you solve a murder when everyone has the same motive? _____________ Readers cannot get enough of Close to Death . . . ***** 'All said and done, this book was yet another hole in one thanks to the virtuoso-like skill of Mr. Horowitz himself.' ***** 'Wow, this has got to be my favourite detective series eve
