What a fun book! Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz is a mystery within a mystery book…. a really challenging “whodunit!”
A publisher and editor are reading the newest submission from famous author Alan Conway in his ‘Atticus Pund’ series. They both get to the end of their pages and realize the last chapter is missing. Before they have a chance to ask him where it is, Alan commits suicide…. or does he?
I challenge anyone to get halfway through this book and solve the Atticus Pund mystery. There are more suspects and reasons to kill the victim than you could imagine…. or did she really just fall down the stairs?
Also, there are so many coincidences between the Atticus mystery and Alan’s story that one wonders how he could write his own death. You will be amazed how it all ends. I guarantee – – you will not predict the solution!
