A-Line to Kill’, by Anthony Horowitz
“Two Thousand Alcoholics clinging to a Rock” is the unoriginal but fairly convincing description of the Channel Island of Alderney, the setting for Anthony Horowitz’s latest novel. He is the third with former detective Daniel Hawthorne, fired by Scotland Yard for throwing an accused pedophile down a staircase.
