Description

When editor Susan Ryeland is given the tattered manuscript of Alan Conway's latest novel, she has little idea it will change her life. She's worked with the revered crime writer for years, and his detective, Atticus Pund, is renowned for solving crimes in the sleepy English villages of the 1950s.

As Susan knows only too well, vintage crime sells handsomely. It's just a shame that it means dealing with an author like Alan Conway....

But Conway's latest tale of murder at Pye Hall is not quite what it seems. Yes, there are dead bodies and a host of intriguing suspects, but hidden in the pages of the manuscript there lies another story: a tale written between the very words on the page, telling of real-life jealousy, greed, ruthless ambition and murder.

From Sunday Times best seller Anthony Horowitz comes Magpie Murders, his deliciously dark take on the vintage crime novel, brought bang up to date with a fiendish modern twist.

Read by Samantha Bond and Allan Corduner.

Hat Trick for Horowitz

Loved it. Read like a Christie but at a faster pace and hooked me right from the start.

Brilliant dual story.

This is a very cleverly written work of crime fiction. Not modern crime fiction with its blood and guts but an old fashioned type detective novel. Having said that, it’s very very different, like nothing I’ve ever read before. I will certainly be recommending it to my Book Club.
The narration by the way was superb - in two different voices for the dual story.

Good book but lacking in some areas.

Loved the reveal of the killlers but how they were being investigated lacked substance and evidence.

Anthony Horowitz Does it Again!!! 🙆‍♂️🙆‍♂️

This book was amazing!!! A classic whodunnit and i didn't realize the ending till it slapped me in the face 😂. At first, i was a bit unsure about the book. The characters seemed to be increasing and i was scared i wouldn't have been able to keep up. But knowing Horowitz, i knew he wouldn't disappoint.

I was a big fan of his Alex Rider series and am glad he his taking his prowess and writing new books.

The narrators were also highly entertaining...especially Samantha. This was truly an enjoyable listen and would recommend it to anyone. Am now going to buy the paperback 😄.

Richtig toll- Wenn man die ersten 3h durchhält

Die ersten 2 Stunden fand ich das Hörbuch sehr langweilig. habe nur weitergehört weil es ja ein Guthaben gekostet hatte. Doch dann wurde es richtig unterhaltsam, spannend und tricky. Ich würde sagen: Wer Hercule Poirot mag, dem gefällt dieses Buch.

Geschichte in der Geschichte

Zu lang. Unangenehme Leute, Plot, der mich langweilte. Einzig die Sprecher machen ihre Sache gut.
