Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz
Editor Susan Ryeland has worked with bestselling author Alan Conway for years. She has no reason to believe that the latest installment in his popular Detective Atticus Pund series will be anything but a traditional sleepy English village whodunit. Yet, she comes to believe that there is something more sinister in this manuscript. This twisty, award-winning novel is an homage to classic mystery queens Christie and Sayers, yet it is a thrillingly contemporary puzzle.
