Magpie Murders

Author:

Anthony Horowitz

Synopsis:

Editor Susan Ryeland has worked with bestselling crime writer Alan Conway for years. Readers love his detective, Atticus Pund, a celebrated solver of crimes in the sleepy English villages of the 1950s. But Conway's latest tale of murder at Pye Hall is not quite what it seems. Yes, there are dead bodies and a host of intriguing suspects; but hidden in the pages of the manuscript lies another story: a tale written between the very words on the page, telling of real-life jealousy, greed, ruthless ambition and murder...

After the collapse of his marriage, D/S Jimmy Suttle is plunged into a series of killings that will test him to the limit.

Graham Hurley

Synopsis:

Tired of struggling against the rising tide of crime in Portsmouth, D.S. Jimmy Suttle heads west with his wife, Lizzie, and young daughter. Soon he is investigating the murder of a long-distance rower in the small town of Exmouth. The man rowed in the same five-man boat as a man who, years before, dodged a murder charge when his wife went missing during a cross-Atlantic rowing challenge. There had been tensions between the two. Has a killer killed again? As the job takes over, Lizzie is increasingly unhappy about the move. And as his marriage frays at the edges and his investigation becomes mired, Suttle begins to feel the hills around their cottage crowding in - the wind over the moors above ever chillier, the waters ever greyer. He really has reached land's end...
