By ANTHONY HOROWITZ
Published by Orion, RRP $34,99
The first official new Sherlock Holmes mystery, written by global bestseller Anthony Horowitz.
Bestselling novelist and Holmes expert Anthony Horowitz will bring the great man to life again for a new generation of readers.
As the creator of Foyle, recently voted UK’s favourite TV detective at the ITV Crime Thriller Awards 2010, Anthony has already displayed his talent for plotting and characterization. Having been a lifelong fan of Conan Doyle’s novels, he was the perfect choice to return to the original stories and create a new mystery for Holmes and Watson.
Interest in Holmes has never been higher than righter now. A blockbusting movie adaptation has coincided with the BBC’s intriguing modern update and both successes are to be repeated this November.
Horowitz says: ‘I fell in love with the Sherlock Holmes stories when I was 16 and I’ve read them many times since. My aim is to produce a first-rate mystery for a modern audience while remaining absolutely true to the spirit of the original.’
