Un asesinato brillante. Tan buena como una novela de Agatha Christie. Quiza incluso mejor, mas inteligente.

Susan Ryeland ha sido durante anos la editora del excentrico escritor superventas Alan Conway. Los lectores adoran al protagonista de su serie mas famosa, el detective Atticus Pund, que se dedica a resolver crimenes en la decada de los cincuenta por pueblecitos ingleses aparentemente tranquilos.

Sin embargo, la ultima novela que ha entregado Conway, y a la que le faltan los ultimos capitulos, no es como las demas y esta a punto de cambiar la vida de Susan. Aunque en la narracion hay cadaveres y una interesante lista de sospechosos, entre las paginas del manuscrito se esconde otra historia: una trama que se entrelaza con la vida real en la que los celos, las envidias, las ambiciones despiadadas y los asesinatos superan con creces a la ficcion. Anthony Horowitz, autor superventas del New York Times, nos transporta a un laberintico misterio que encierra otro misterio de la mano de personajes dignos de los mejores clasicos en un escenario contemporaneo impecable y plagado de suspense.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

NOW A PBS SERIES

From the New York Times bestselling author of Moriarty and Trigger Mortis, this fiendishly brilliant, riveting thriller weaves a classic whodunit worthy of Agatha Christie into a chilling, ingeniously original modern-day mystery.

When editor Susan Ryeland is given the manuscript of Alan Conway’s latest novel, she has no reason to think it will be much different from any of his others. After working with the bestselling crime writer for years, she’s intimately familiar with his detective, Atticus Pund, who solves mysteries disturbing sleepy English villages. An homage to queens of classic British crime such as Agatha Christie and Dorothy Sayers, Alan’s traditional formula has proved hugely successful. So successful that Susan must continue to put up with his troubling behavior if she wants to keep her job.

Conway’s latest tale has Atticus Pund investigating a murder at Pye Hall, a local manor house. Yes, there are dead bodies and a host of intriguing suspects, but the more Susan reads, the more she’s convinced that there is another story hidden in the pages of the manuscript: one of real-life jealousy, greed, ruthless ambition, and murder.

Masterful, clever, and relentlessly suspenseful, Magpie Murders is a deviously dark take on vintage English crime fiction in which the reader becomes the detective.
