Author: Anthony Horowitz

Anthony Horowitz is on his Snakehead tour here in the USA and Canada this month. Author Sue Corbett (Free Baseball, 12 Again) has a nice profile of Horowitz in the Miami Herald. I'd never heard this part of Horowitz's story before:

The family's fortunes then shifted dramatically when his father, threatened with bankruptcy over some business dealings, deposited all of his money in Swiss bank accounts under a false name, and died without leaving instructions on how to retrieve it. Horowitz's mother searched unsuccessfully for years.

A Snakehead trailer is on YouTube.
