Biografía breve
Anthony Horowitz's life might have been copied from the pages of Charles Dickens or the Brothers Grimm. Born in 1956 in Stanmore, Middlesex, to a family of wealth and status, Anthony was raised by nannies, surrounded by servants and chauffeurs. His father, a wealthy businessman, was, says Mr. Horowitz, "a fixer for Harold Wilson." What that means exactly is unclear -- "My father was a very secretive man," he says-- so an aura of suspicion and mystery surrounds both the word and the man. As unlikely as it might seem, Anthony's father, threatened with bankruptcy, withdrew all of his money from Swiss bank accounts in Zurich and deposited it in another account under a false name and then promptly died. His mother searched unsuccessfully for years in attempt to find the money, but it was never found. That too shaped Anthony's view of things. Today he says, "I think the only thing to do with money is spend it." His mother, whom he adored, eccentrically gave him a human skull for his 13th birthday. His grandmother, another Dickensian character, was mean-spirited and malevolent, a destructive force in his life. She was, he says, "a truly evil person", his first and worst arch villain. "My sister and I danced on her grave when she died," he now recalls.
A miserably unhappy and overweight child, Anthony had nowhere to turn for solace. "Family meals," he recalls, "had calories running into the thousands&. I was an astoundingly large, round child&." At the age of eight he was sent off to boarding school, a standard practice of the times and class in which he was raised. While being away from home came as an enormous relief, the school itself, Orley Farm, was a grand guignol horror with a headmaster who flogged the boys till they bled. "Once the headmaster told me to stand up in assembly and in front of the whole school said, 'This boy is so stupid he will not be coming to Christmas games tomorrow.' I have never totally recovered." To relieve his misery and that of the other boys, he not unsurprisingly made up tales of astounding revenge and retribution.

Anthony Horowitz is perhaps the busiest writer in England. He has been writing since the age of eight, and professionally since the age of twenty. He writes in a comfortable shed in his garden for up to ten hours per day. In addition to the highly successful Alex Rider books, he has also written episodes of several popular TV crime series, including Poirot, Murder in Mind, Midsomer Murders and Murder Most Horrid. He has written a television series Foyle's War, which recently aired in the United States, and he has written the libretto of a Broadway musical adapted from Dr. Seuss's book, The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T. His film script The Gathering has just finished production. And&oh yes&there are more Alex Rider novels in the works. Anthony has also written the Diamond Brothers series.

Joe Warden isn't happy. He has rich, uncaring parents and he's virtually a prisoner in the huge family mansion, Thattlebee Hall. But his real problem is his granny. Not only is she physically repulsive and unbelievably mean, she seems to have some secret plan and that plan involves him! Can he thwart her evil scheme before he's turned into neoplasmic slime?

Watson hizo prometer que no publicarían este caso hasta cien años después de su muerte por ser demasiado escandaloso para la época. Todo empieza cuando un delincuente amenaza a un marchante de arte, que pide ayuda a Holmes. El caso pronto se complica cuando todas las pistas les llevan a «La casa de seda», un secreto del que nadie quiere hablar pero que es responsable de la muerte de uno de los chiquillos que ayudan a Holmes. Este se involucra de tal manera que resulta arrestado, teniendo que escapar de una condena segura para resolver los dos misterios, que se entrelazan de una manera sorprendente.… (más)

En este libro en su primera parte nos muestra como es la violencia intrafamiliar y algunos aspectos de castigo hacia los niños y las mujeres, vemos como en algunos tiempos atrás se presentaban castigos severos por hechos muy insignificantes los cuales en esta época se resuelven con dialogo.
También muestra como ha existido la brujería y los jóvenes de hoy día se dejar persuadir de una forma fácil.
