Publisher's Summary

The chilling conclusion to the #1 bestseller The Magpies.

Twelve months ago, Jamie Knight walked straight into Lucy Newton’s trap. Both Jamie and his ex-wife Kirsty barely survived. Now, with the police investigation into Lucy’s disappearance going nowhere, Jamie teams up with a true crime podcaster to track down his nemesis. 

But can Jamie persuade Kirsty to help? Can Kirsty forgive him for his past mistakes? And who, if anyone, will survive the final showdown? Featuring extracts from Lucy’s secret memoir, Last of the Magpies brings the trilogy to a shocking conclusion.

Perfect Conclusion

I highly recommend you read the first two books of The Magpie series before reading this one.

After Lucy the "Dark Angel" managed to escape capture at the end of the last book, Jaime finds himself questioning how he can continue in a world where she is on the loose and free to hurt people again. Teaming up with a true crime podcaster, he is determined to find her and stop her wicked ways. Can they find Lucy or will she elude capture yet again?

This book brings in all the beloved characters from the series and introduces a couple of new ones. Edwards ties all the loose ends from the first two books together in this exciting conclusion. In addition, I love that there are excerpts from Lucy's manuscript that give us a peek into her past that was previously a mystery. This is a fast read, and is exciting from start to finish. I highly recommend this book, and the entire series. You will not be disappointed!

Great conclusion

Wow, what a conclusion to the Magpies series. In Last of the Magpies, some extracts from Lucy’s secret memoir are revealed and Jamie attempts to get his ex-wife Kirsty to help him track down the whereabouts of Lucy. Will they team up and find her? Will Jamie and Kirsty go their separate ways or is there hope for them? Find out in Last of the Magpies. Loved this series.

Treat yourself to a really good read!

This book series is one of the best psychological thrillers I have ever read! Well written story, believable characters and really scary that while a work of fiction, it was so believable, it could have truly been story of fact. The characters were well developed including their own flaws. Excellent read!

It should have been left the way it was

I do not think that there should have been a comeback. The story was fine the way it was. And it wasn't predictable like the last two "books". Stay with the OG Magpies. You won't be disappointed.

Again not worth a full credit

Although a thrilling conclusion to the fantastic series, as in Murder of Magpies it is too short and not worth the credit and the two novellas “Murder” and “Last” should be bundled for a single credit. Both of these final two instalments feel a bit rushed and I would have rather the author made a full novel for each of the final two instalments and set them as a proper trilogy. However that said Mark Edwards still manages to captivate his audience until the very end. I would still recommend to fans of Magpies but would suggest saving your credit and buy the kindle edition instead.

Too short - waste of a credit in my opinion:-(
But good to hear what happened to the characters
