" 'You shouldn't be here. It's too late'...These, heard over the phone, were the last recorded words of successful celebrity-divorce lawyer Richard Pryce, found bludgeoned to death in his bachelor pad with a bottle of wine - a 1982 Chateau Lafite worth £3,000, to be precise. Odd, considering he didn't drink. Why this bottle? And why those words? And why was a three-digit number painted on the wall by the killer? And, most importantly, which of the man's many, many enemies did the deed?

“The Sentence Is Death” (2019), the second Daniel Hawthorne mystery by Anthony Horowitz, proves the first one, “The Word Is Murder,” was no fluke.

As before, this novel reads like autobiography. Horowitz himself is a key character, the Watson to Hawthorne's Holmes. Hawthorne is an ex-cop, kicked off the force because he was suspected of pushing a child-porn suspect down a flight of stairs. Yet this very disagreeable man is just too smart, too good at solving unsolvable murders to ignore. So he gets hired to help with difficult cases. He then drafts a reluctant Horowitz, a noted writer of mysteries that include some featuring Sherlock Holmes, to write about his brilliant deductions.

This time the case involves a divorce attorney killed with a bottle of wine after the wife of a man he had defended in a divorce case had apparently threatened to hit him over the head with a bottle of wine. Of course, open-and-shut cases are not so open and shut in mystery novels, and before long there are several other possible suspects and a number of other possible motives.

Horowitz keeps things hopping, maintaining the mystery until the end without overcomplicating things. Not every mystery writer can do this this well. Yet perhaps his greatest achievement is fitting this fictional story so seamlessly into his own life. ( )

One of my great joys is reading a author who has a singular voice, a unique way of writing that jumps off the page into your head. It makes reading such a visceral experience, it makes the entire experience more "real" if you will, and Mr. Horowitz definitely has a "voice." He writes in a strange combination where he is a character in his own story. This hall of mirrors approach could be clunky and overwrought but he is using it for humor and self-deprecation and it works. It works wonderfully. He mixes this in with mysteries out of the Agatha Christie toolkit and the result is a fun romp with a satisfying conclusion. What's not to like? I love the thrust of the mystery in this one but really enjoyed the peek into the daily life of the character "Anthony Horowitz" as he balances his work as a television writer (true) with his true crime chronicling (not true). This was a good quarantine read for sure. ( )

I have 1 or 2 others in this series. I enjoy them, although sometimes not as much as I would like. ( )

This is my first Anthony Horowitz novel, although it is the second in the series. It is quite entertaining, especially with the author as a character in the book. He is paired up with an ex-detective, Hawthorne, and the pair is often at odds, with Horowitz showing a dislike for Hawthorne.
In this novel, a lawyer is found murdered, and there is a long list of suspects, including clients and friends, a as well as his husband. Many have a motive.
Entertaining, but also a bit sad, especially when you read the ending and how everything is resolved. ( )

I love the relationship between Horowitz and Hawthorne, it's such a clever premise for a book, the author is a character in his own book. Looking forward to the next in the series... ( )
