Nasty November
This month we're dealing with crime and this book is the sinister tale of a crime novel. The editor Susan Ryland has worked with bestselling crime writer Alan Conway for years. Readers love his detective, Atticus Pünd, 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. Join us to find out whodunit! MAGPIE MURDERS- Anthony Horowitz (Orion) Pbk. 560pp.
