Following a UK tour, Anthony Horowitz’s psychological thriller Mindgame is opening at London’s Ambassadors Theatre on 15 May 2018 (running until 2 June, with a press night on 16 May), following the early closure of All Or Nothing.
Horowitz is well-known as the creator of Foyles War, the BBC’s New Blood, Alex Rider, the Sherlock Holmes novels House of Silk and Moriarty and the James Bond novel Trigger Mortis. His new James Bond novel, Forever and a Day, will be published on 31 May.
When Mark Styler, a writer of glossy ‘true crime’ paperbacks, tries to get an interview with Easterman, a notorious serial killer, he has no idea what he’s walking into. First, he has to get past Dr Farquhar, the quixotic head of Fairfields – the asylum where Easterman is kept. But soon he discovers that nothing is what it seems.
Anthony Horowitz has written more than 40 books including the bestselling teen spy series Alex Rider, which he adapted into a movie. He is also an acclaimed writer for adults and was commissioned by the Conan Doyle Estate and Orion Books to write two new Sherlock Holmes novels (The House of Silk and Moriarty). Most recently he was commissioned by the Ian Fleming Estate to write the James Bond novel Trigger Mortis. His latest works are The Word is Murder and Never Say Die (the latest in the Alex Rider series). Anthony is also responsible for creating and writing some of the UK’s most beloved and successful television series, including Midsomer Murders and Foyle’s War. He was awarded an OBE for his services to literature in January 2014.
