Three Mysteries by Anthony Horowitz

by Sharon Tucker

Many of us were introduced to Anthony Horowitz through his TV series Foyle’s War and the remarkable detective DCI Christopher Foyle who held civilization together in Hastings, England, during WWII and after. It’s ironic that he wanted to do more for the war effort than routine civilian policing when the cases he solved were anything but routine to most of us. He just kept running afoul of unpleasant bureaucrats who had a score to settle or were indifferent to him. The series was clever, well written, and character rich. So, I’m glad to say that these same characteristics apply to each of the three from different Horowitz series I chose to read.
