Author Anthony Horowitz to write new Sherlock Holmes novel


Jewish author Anthony Horowitz has been commissioned by the estate of Arthur Conan Doyle to write a full-length Sherlock Holmes novel.

Horowitz, author of the popular young adult series about teenage spy Alex Rider, told The Guardian Tuesday that he set about writing “a first-rate mystery for a modern audience while remaining absolutely true to the spirit of the original.”

Horowitz said he fell in love with Sherlock Holmes stories when he was 16.

The book, the fifth Sherlock Holmes novel ever written, will be published in Britain in September. Doyle also wrote 56 short stories about the popular detective.
