Meet the neighbors from hell, in the gripping thriller that reviewers and listeners describe as "fast-paced", "chilling", and "impossible to put down".
When Jamie and Kirsty move into their first home together, they are full of optimism. The future, in which they plan to get married and start a family, is bright. The other residents of their building seem friendly, too, including the Newtons, a married couple who welcome them to the building with open arms.
But then strange things start to happen. Dead rats are left on their doorstep. They hear disturbing noises, and much worse, in the night. After Jamie’s best friend is injured in a horrific accident, Jamie and Kirsty find themselves targeted by a campaign of terror.
As they are driven to the edge of despair, Jamie vows to fight back - but he has no idea what he is really up against....
The Magpies is a gripping psychological thriller in which the monsters are not vampires or demons but the people who live next door. It is a nightmare that could happen to anyone.

WARNING! This book is highly adictive
The story is compelling, it made me want to listen to more and more, twists and turns aplenty. Makes you question how well you know your neighbours?
How seemingly perfectly stayed and sensible people can be driven to certain actions through junk mail. The writer guides you into the story with expertise
The narration was fine, perfectly listenable although if I had to nit pick I think female narrators voice males better than males voice females, however as the lead is a man it is understandable why this book is read by a man. I think Elliot Hill does however bring to life the character of Jamie well, in respect of his age and lifestyle.
Often sent a shiver down my spine
