Publisher's Summary

Once again, Anthony Horowitz proves to be a captivating storyteller in this mysterious crime caper with an old-school twist. Crafting a narrative that is fuller and more intimate at second glance, there is much more than meets the eye.
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.

Who? How? Where & Why?

Now listen to A LOT of audio books, but I rarely write a review.
I know Anthony Horowitz from all his teen books and was not sure what to expect from this.
The story was excellent and I kept up with the twists and turns but a no point did I guess......
The double story line is very good and I could easily be converted to this type of story if there are more like this.
Allan and Samantha as narrators were excellent!
5 stars all round.

Wonderful for any murder mystery fans

Excellent murder mystery. Plenty of twists to keep you hooked right to the end! Starts out very 'Agatha Christie-ish' but then deviates in a very unexpected way. Lovely narration too.
