The Word is Murder (Horowitz) - Book Reviews

Book Reviews
[T]he beguiling whodunit plot is dispatched with characteristic elan as Horowitz blurs the line between fiction and reality.… [T]here is no denying the sheer ingenuity of the central notion.
Financial Times (UK)


(Starred review) [A] scrupulously fair whodunit, features a fictionalized version of himself.… Deduction and wit are well-balanced, and fans of Peter Lovesey and other modern channelers of the spirit of the golden age of detection will clamor for more.
Publishers Weekly


(Starred review) Actually, the word is not murder, it’s ingenious....a masterful meta-mystery.
Booklist


(Starred review) [A] fiendishly clever puzzle…. Though the impatient, tightfisted, homophobic lead detective is impossible to love, the mind-boggling plot triumphs over its characters.
Kirkus Reviews
