Anthony, the narrator, is once again approached by ex-Detective Inspector Daniel Hawthorne and asked to write about him and a case he is working on, despite the fact that their first collaboration has not been published yet. Although Anthony is not too keen on Hawthorne, the details of the case pique him and he reluctantly agrees to document the case. Lady Drunk: Davina Richardson, who has never gotten over the loss of her husband 12 years ago, talks about how lonely she is, and is always drinking whenever Hawthorne and Anthony come over.So given I'm averse to reading this type of book, why do I continue with the series? Because they are easy to read, enjoyable, and have genuinely intriguing mysteries. There's a reason Horowitz either wrote or conceived a large number of the TV murder mysteries on British TV in the last 20 years or so - he can think up a great plot and execute it well. Like all crime of this genre (so called 'cosy' crime as opposed to the grittier, more realist stuff) it can be far fetched, but you happily accept that in return for a good read. This one was at the more plausible end of the spectrum. As always, Hawthorne doggedly solves the crime whilst Anthony stumbles along, misconstruing the clues, interrupting at unfortunate times, and generally making a hash of things. Which is quite ironic when you remember that in reality the whole thing has been made up by Horowitz start to finish. The device allows the author to conduct a running commentary on the process of writing the story, while poking fun at himself. Horowitz is perhaps best known as the creator of the Alex Rider children’s books, yet, in a running gag, no one can remember his hero’s name. He also takes aim at the world of literary fiction. One of the suspects is a pretentious Japanese author who pens worthy, prize-winning novels and accuses our author hero of being the worst thing imaginable — “a commercial writer”. AH, as the narrator, is the observer in this book and the reader sees everything through his eyes, making us strongly connected to him. He writes in a personal way and creates empathy by reacting in natural ways to odd events as opposed to being an overly dramatic fictional character. AH is not a detective and struggles to make sense of what is going on around him. In this role he represents the reader very well - he seems to says what the reader is likely to be thinking and AH has the ability to go searching for more information.
