Anthony Horowitz's new book is pays homage to Agatha Christie and is a celebration of all that is good about vintage crime and a fiendishly difficult mystery. In his own inimitable style, Horowitz brings a twist to the crime classics of the 1930s with a story set in a little village, where all is not as it seems.

Atticus Pund, half-German, half-Turkish, is an Anglophile - indeed, his love of the English makes it difficult to believe that any of them would want to commit murder. But a murder has been committed and it is up to Atticus to solve it. With a cast of characters that will delight fans of Agatha Christie, this is a classic crime novel with more than one twist.

And Then There Was Horowitz

"Horowitz has mastered the formidable hurdle he had placed in his own path by making clever use of a story within a story that enables him to present two separate surprising, but logical, reveals."
