- Magpie Murders, Book 1
- By: Anthony Horowitz
- Narrated by: Allan Corduner, Samantha Bond
- Length: 15 hrs and 48 mins
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.
Two mysteries in one, it can't get any better!

So very witty and tricky
Look this book is so clever, it twists, it turns and it takes the micky. The readers are brilliant and catch the tone so well. It is very long but so worth the wait and I laughed out loud when at the end I was informed who the publisher is - you will get the joke, it is very cheeky. Well done Mr Horowitz
