Review

"Ingenious twist on the classic whodunnit" (The Guardian)

"Splendidly entertaining, absorbing and difficult to put down. Hawthorne is an intriguing character" (Daily Express)

"Horowitz is strong on plot … and infectiously zestful" (Daily Telegraph)

"A real page-turner. I loved it!" (ALED JONES (ITV, Weekend))

"Raises the game-playing to Olympic level." (Guardian Books of the Year)

"Actually the word is not murder, it's ingenious ... A masterful meta-mystery." (Booklist)

"The beguiling whodunit plot is dispatched with characteristic elan as Horowitz blurs the line between fact and fiction" (Financial Times)

"There is plenty of metafictional fun to be had" (The Guardian)

"Fast-paced and full of unpredictable twists and turns." (The Times Audiobook of the week)

"Horowitz has put together a cleverly twisting mystery featuring plenty of suspicious characters and more than a few red herrings" (Nudge)
