Product description

Review

"This is crime fiction as dazzling entertainment, sustained by writing as skilfully light-footed as Fred Astaire" (Sunday Times Crime Club, Star Pick)

"A crime story that keeps you up into the small hours… a page-turning mystery" (Metro)

"Clever" (Good Housekeeping)

"One of the most creative writers in the country today" (Jeremy Vine)

"Anthony Horowitz gets away with murder in all sorts of ways and emerges triumphant" (The Times, Books of the Year)

"Huge fun… It’s hard to know why anyone who loves a good mystery wouldn’t thoroughly enjoy the ride" (Irish Independent)

"A new Anthony Horowitz novel is always something to look forward to. Anyone who likes a good Midsomer-style murder mystery will love The Sentence is Death" (CultureFly)

"Sheer genius ... The narrative is hilarious and full of Holmesian clues and deliberate errors which will leave the eagle-eyed reader feeling just a bit smug. A joy from start to finish" (Independent)

From the Inside Flap

Richard Pryce is an smooth-tongued barrister who has made a fortune out of divorces - and a lot of enemies in the process. He lives in a modern, architecturally designed house on the edge of Hampstead Heath.

Or rather he used to ...

When he is found murdered, the police confront the most baffling of mysteries: who was the visitor who came to Pryce's house moments before he died and while he was still on the phone?

“You shouldn’t be here. It’s too late…” were his last recorded words but what exactly did he mean?

Why did his killer paint a three-digit number on the wall before leaving the crime scene? And why was he bludgeoned to death with an expensive bottle of wine when he didn't drink alcohol?

The police are forced to hand the case to Private Investigator Daniel Hawthorne, who takes it on with characteristic relish.

But Hawthorne himself has secrets to hide and as our reluctant narrator becomes ever more embroiled in the case he realises that these are secrets that need to be exposed - even if it puts his own life in danger ...
