signs House of Silk (Little Brown $27.99)
So here is a somewhat melancholy Dr. John Watson missing his famous literary subject and deciding now is the time to write up that so dangerous case he’s kept mum for years. It begins when a frightened London art dealer in old masters come to 221B Baker Street and recounts a sale and terrible events that played out in America-Boston-and now have followed him to England. Or that’s how it starts…
Written with the stamp of the Conan Doyle Estate by the author of Alex Rider and various fabulous TV gems like Foyle’s War, this tale draws in Mycroft, Moriarity, Watson’s wife Mary, Mrs. Hudson, Lestrade, and other beloved figures in the canon.Click here to order HOUSE OF SILK
Anthony Horowitz (http://anthonyhorowitz.com) is perhaps the busiest writer in England. He has been writing since the age of eight, and professionally since the age of twenty. He writes in a comfortable shed in his garden for up to ten hours per day. In addition to the highly successful Alex Rider books, he has also written episodes of several popular TV crime series, including Poirot, Murder in Mind, Midsomer Murders and Murder Most Horrid. He has written a television series Foyle’s War, which recently aired in the United States, and he has written the libretto of a Broadway musical adapted from Dr. Seuss’s book, The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T. His film script The Gathering has just finished production. And — oh yes — there are more Alex Rider novels in the works. Anthony has also written the Diamond Brothers series.
