Review: 'A Twist of the Knife,' by Anthony Horowitz

The thing I most like about the mysteries of Anthony Horowitz — besides their smooth writing, skillful plotting and delightful sense of humor — is this: Horowitz gives you clues. He lays them all out there, and if you are sharp and paying attention, you can solve them. I assume. I never have.

Anthony Horowitz isn't just a mystery writer. He's also a suspect.

Maybe it would be a good thing for mystery writer Anthony Horowitz to be the prime suspect in a murder himself. He could use a little time off from writing. The prolific bestselling British novelist has a lot of irons in the fire, including three series geared toward young adults (including the “Alex Rider” and “Power of Five” series), and two mystery novels featuring detective Atticus Pünd, including 2016's “The Magpie Murders,” which Horowitz himself adapted into a limited TV series currently airing in the United States as part of PBS’s “Masterpiece.”

With a Mind to Kill by Anthony Horowitz review – 007 in a polished page-turner

Anthony Horowitz’s third James Bond tale begins both dynamically and canonically. It starts immediately after the events of Ian Fleming’s final Bond novel, The Man With the Golden Gun, at M’s funeral; his murderer is none other than 007, who has now been brainwashed by the Russians and turned into their prime asset. Nothing is as it seems, though, and a labyrinthine game of spycraft develops, with Bond caught between British intelligence and a dastardly group of Smersh villains who regard Khrushchev as too moderate. They wish to recruit the British spy to further their nefarious plans. Will they succeed? Or will Bond save the day?
