Review

“Except for Jeffrey Deaver and Sophie Hannah, no one currently working the field has anywhere near this much ingenuity to burn.” (Kirkus Reviews) --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

About the Author

ANTHONY HOROWITZ is the author of the US bestselling Magpie Murders and The Word is Murder, and one of the most prolific and successful writers in the English language; he may have committed more (fictional) murders than any other living author. His novel Trigger Mortis features original material from Ian Fleming. His most recent Sherlock Holmes novel, Moriarty, is a reader favorite; and his bestselling Alex Rider series for young adults has sold more than 19 million copies worldwide. As a TV screenwriter, he created both Midsomer Murders and the BAFTA-winning Foyle’s War on PBS. Horowitz regularly contributes to a wide variety of national newspapers and magazines, and in January 2014 was awarded an OBE.



Allan Corduner starred as Sir Arthur Sullivan in Mike Leigh's Topsy Turvy. Other films include Moonlight Mile, The Green Zone, and Yentl. He has extensive theater credits on Broadway and in London's West End.

Rating: 4.4/5

"There's something very satisfying about a complicated whodunnit that actually makes sense."

Anthony Horowitz is such a talented and versatile writer. He seems to be able to turn his writing hand to just about anything and make a suitably superb job of whatever the subject matter is: For young adult readers there are the Alex Rider books (and others); for the theatre he has written the excellent "Mindgame"; for adults he has also penned a variety of thrillers; he has produced work written sympathetically in the style of Arthur Conan Doyle and Ian Fleming in creating additional adventures for Sherlock Holmes and James Bond respectively; and then there is all of his television screenplay writing too. I suspect he could even rewrite the telephone directory and make it an entertaining read!

In "Moonflower Murders" we are reintroduced to Susan Ryeland, whom we first met a few years ago in the wonderful "Magpie Murders". The format here is again similar, in that there is a book contained within a book. I won't rehash the whole plot here, as the synopsis and other existing reviews have covered that ground already.

The two stories are both "whodunnits" and written in the classical style of the "golden age". At the start, and again at the end of "Moonflower Murders", Horowitz tells the story of the current mystery, being investigated by former editor, Susan Ryland. Sandwiched in between we have a separate, but related mystery penned by the fictitious Alan Conway and featuring the Poirot-like German sleuth Atticus Pünd.

Both mysteries stand up in their own right, but, as he did in "Magpie Murders", Anthony Horowitz cleverly interweaves the relevance of one with the other. However, the thing that impresses me most when Horowitz does this, is the fact that he manages to write in a markedly different, but nonetheless authentic and credible style as Alan Conway. In the same way that he successfully adapted his writing for the Sherlock Holmes and James Bond novels, Anthony Horowitz "becomes" Alan Conway for 224 pages. That takes some skill and it is something I am not sure that many other writers could pull off as adeptly.

This is another hugely entertaining read from the pen of Anthony Horowitz. I am only stopping short of awarding the full 5 stars because of the fact that he used essentially the same mechanic in Magpie Murders, so this time around it does not have the same level of originality ... but it is still a hellishly good book.
