The Baker Street Babes
Episode 12: Anthony Horowitz

Anthony Horowitz in the author of The House of Silk, a book that has the Sherlockian and Holmesian world reeling. Endorsed by The Arthur Conan Doyle Estate, some have called it canon, while others say it's just another pastiche. Babe, Jenn sits down with the popular author of the Alex Rider series and talks the story, how it came about, what fueled it, and who Anthony would have tea with.

Please note that while the majority of background noise has been removed, this interview took place in a hotel lobby and there may be some doors slamming.

You can buy The House of Silk now at all major bookstores and online.
