Rory Kinnear has done the narration of this novel, The Word Is Murder. The performance was quite good and the listeners enjoyed it thoroughly.

The time is just past 11 in the morning and it was a bright day of spring. A woman is seen on a London street who is going to visit a funeral parlor to check the plan for her service. The woman was surprisingly found dead just six hours later in the day. She was killed by strangling using the cord of a crimson curtain, which was in her own home.

There enters Daniel Hawthorne, a disgraced police detective on the scene. He was accompanied by his partner who is none other than Anthony Horowitz, a celebrated novelist.

Horowitz as compared to Hawthorne is quite seasoned when it comes to the crime stories.
