A cunning re-invention of the thriller formula
A highly enjoyable twist on the classic whodunnit
A stylish, multi-layered thriller - playful, ingenious and wonderfully entertaining
Although at first glance Horowitz's latest offering appears to be a classic whodunit novel, it will almost certainly prove to be unlike anything you've ever read before, and will have you mulling over its various intrigues in between sittings.
An ingenious novel-within-a-novel whodunit about the death of a crime writer . . . Part crime novel, part pastiche, this magnificent piece of crime fiction plays with the genre while also taking it seriously
Anthony Horowitz's new novel is at once a brilliant pastiche of the English village mystery and a hugely enjoyable tale of avarice and skulduggery in the world of publishing . . . a compendium of dark delights
Brilliant. Really, really brilliant. I loved it.
Horowitz is a superb pasticheur.
Putting two books in one with their plots running side by side makes Magpie Murders difficult to put down and Horowitz fans will thoroughly enjoy a cracking good read
We loved this Agatha Christie-esque crime novel. A fiendish mystery within a mystery that will have you hooked from page one
Superbly written, with great suspects, a perfect period feel and a cracking reveal at the end
Want to read a great whodunnit? Anthony Horowitz has one for you: MAGPIE MURDERS. It's as good as an Agatha Christie. Better, in some ways. Cleverer.
