I’ve heard of Anthony Horowitz but not read any of his previous novels. In my little world, Hororwitz is equally known for his work in television, having created Foyle’s War and the
never-ending long-lasting Midsomer Murders. And then there’s his newer work, New Blood, recently on ABC TV here in Australia (and enjoyed by my mum).
Interestingly he authored the James Bond novel, Trigger Mortis, but if I had my way, Horowitz would be been responsible for the revitalisation of Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot. Horowitz worked on the TV show and, though Sophie Hannah is certainly talented, I think the screenwriter (and obvious Christie-fan) has her style down pat.
