Publisher's Summary

The terrifying sequel to the number-one best seller The Magpies.

Five years ago Jamie Knight lost everything: his home, his wife and their unborn child. But at least the woman responsible, 'Dark Angel' Lucy Newton, was in prison, and slowly Jamie was able to rebuild his life.

But now Lucy has been freed on appeal, and before long Jamie receives a message from a desperate stranger. Lucy is up to her old tricks - ruining lives for fun.

Jamie agrees to help. But once again, he has no idea what he is getting himself into....

enthralling

I read The Magpies and A Murder of. Magpies in sequence in 1 day. The author hinted at a third novel and wrap up the story based on his readers response. I am voting yes. Both of these books have the same characters which are thoroughly engaging. Personally I did not like the protagonist. He is the type of man I wouldn't even have as a friend. He is in my opinion a wimpy, weak, lovestruck, nerd and a sorry excuse for a man. These traits made him a great protagonist in that initially I thought he would be killed off because he was a nobody. Many surprises in this story and a great read! I highly recommend it

LOVED IT!

Mark, PLEASE PLEASE give us the final conclusion!! The cliffhanger ending is killing me! 😵
We have to know if Jamie will get his revenge, and if he & K manage to patch things up!!

Short but sweet, a few hours long

Would you consider the audio edition of A Murder of Magpies to be better than the print version?

Yes

What about Elliot Hill’s performance did you like?

He made the story and characters come alive

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes and did

Any additional comments?

looking forward to the next one.

Dire!

A step too far, by a usually brilliant author. Oh God let it please be over.
