REVIEW:  Magpie Murders

A mystery by Anthony Horowitz

By Whitney Lebron, Mount Pleasant Regional Library  |  Susan Ryeland, editor for London based Clover books, receives a manuscript for the latest of the well-known and loved Atticus Pünd series by a not so endearing author Alan Conway. Thinking it’ll be the same traditional formula that has proven highly successful, Susan is caught off guard when she becomes convinced that there is a hidden story of real-life greed and ambition in the manuscript.

Anthony Horowitz’s latest book, “Magpie Murders,” is a tribute to the golden age of detective fiction writers such as Agatha Christie and Dorothy L. Sayers. As a bonus, “Magpie Murders” is two books in one. The first half is the manuscript written by Conway (missing the final chapters) and the second half describes Ryeland trying to find the missing chapters and solve the real-life mystery hidden in the manuscript. For fans of classic British mysteries or Anthony Horowitz, this book is a must read.
