Teaser Thursday Featuring Anthony Horowitz’s Close To Death

Teaser Thursday Featuring Anthony Horowitz’s Close To Death (Hawthorne & Horowitz #5)

Please note that I have not yet read Close to Death, the fifth installment in the Hawthorne and Horowitz series. That said, this Teaser Thursday should not be seen as a review (maybe a modified kind of summary). Instead, it contains carefully selected quotes from the first few chapters (no spoilers). 

Here is the Goodreads summary (quotes below):

In New York Times bestselling author Anthony Horowitz’s ingenious fifth literary whodunnit in the Hawthorne and Horowitz series, Detective Hawthorne is once again called upon to solve an unsolvable case—a gruesome murder in an idyllic gated community in which suspects abound.

Riverside Close is a picture-perfect community. The six exclusive and attractive houses are tucked far away from the noise and grime of city life, allowing the residents to enjoy beautiful gardens, pleasant birdsong, and tranquility from behind the security of a locked gate.

It is the perfect idyll until the Kentworthy family arrives with their four giant, gas-guzzling cars, a gaggle of shrieking children, and plans for a garish swimming pool in the backyard. Obvious outsiders, the Kentworthys do not belong in Riverside Close and quickly offend every last one of the neighbors.

When Charles Kentworthy is found dead on his own doorstep, a crossbow bolt sticking out of his chest, Detective Hawthorne is the only investigator they can call to solve the case.
