Anthony HorowitzIt's not every day that Monica and Caroline interview a writer and then see him on television that night - but the day that we recorded this in-depth interview with Anthony Horowitz, one of Britain's most popluar and best-loved writers who earlier this week was honored as an Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (just two steps shy of knighthood), he was featured on the PBS special, "How Sherlock Changed the World."  That was due to his most recent adult novel, "House of Silk," a Sherlock Holmes novel written at the behest of the Conan Doyle Estate and publlished in November 2011.  (Sherlock changed the world because of the advances in crime detection that resulted from the methods employed in his fictional adventures).  The "House of Silk," by the way, reads just like Conan Doyle's books - and is one of the best novels I've read in years.

But that's not actually the book we are focusing on today, which is  "Russian Roulette: The Story of an Assassin."
