When editor Susan Ryeland is given the tattered manuscript of Alan Conway's latest vel, 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 rewned for solving crimes in the sleepy English villages of the 1950s. As Susan kws 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 t 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 ather story: a tale written between the very words on the page, telling of real-life jealousy, greed, ruthless ambition and murder.From Sunday Times bestseller Anthony Horowitz comes Magpie Murders, his deliciously dark take on the cosy crime vel, brought bang- up-to-date with a fiendish modern twist.
