THE NUMBER ONE EBOOK BESTSELLER
'Want to read a great whodunnit? Anthony Horowitz has one for you: MAGPIE MURDERS. It's as good as an Agatha Christie. Better, in some ways. Cleverer.' Stephen King
'The finest crime novel of the year' Daily Mail
Seven for a mystery that needs to be solved . . .
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.
From the creator of Midsomer Murders comes a fiendish mystery perfect for fans of Agatha Christie's Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot.

Featuring his famous literary detective Atticus Pund and Susan Ryeland, hero of the worldwide bestseller Magpie Murders, a brilliantly complex literary thriller with echoes of Agatha Christie from New York Times bestselling author Anthony Horowitz.
Retired publisher Susan Ryeland is living the good life. She is running a small hotel on a Greek island with her long-term boyfriend Andreas. It should be everything she's always wanted. But is it? She's exhausted with the responsibilities of making everything work on an island where nothing ever does, and truth be told she's beginning to miss London.
And then the Trehearnes come to stay. The strange and mysterious story they tell, about an unfortunate murder that took place on the same day and in the same hotel in which their daughter was married—a picturesque inn on the Suffolk coast named Farlingaye Hall—fascinates Susan and piques her editor’s instincts.
One of her former writers, the late Alan Conway, author of the fictional Magpie Murders, knew the murder victim—an advertising executive named Frank Parris—and once visited Farlingaye Hall. Conway based the third book in his detective series, Atticus Pund Takes the Cake, on that very crime.
The Trehearne’s, daughter, Cecily, read Conway’s mystery and believed the book proves that the man convicted of Parris’s murder—a Romanian immigrant who was the hotel’s handyman—is innocent. When the Trehearnes reveal that Cecily is now missing, Susan knows that she must return to England and find out what really happened.
Brilliantly clever, relentlessly suspenseful, full of twists that will keep readers guessing with each revelation and clue, Moonflower Murders is a deviously dark take on vintage English crime fiction from one of its greatest masterminds, Anthony Horowitz.
Un crimine riemerge dal passato.
Solo un libro può risolvere il suo enigma.
Dopo I delitti della gazza ladra, un nuovo caso per Susan Ryeland.
Dopo avere risolto il mistero che avvolgeva la morte dello scrittore Alan Conway, l'editor londinese Susan Ryeland ha scelto Creta come luogo in cui reinventarsi, aprendo insieme al fidanzato un hotel lontano dal trambusto della metropoli. Ma, bellezza a parte, la vita sull'isola è lenta. Troppo. Fino al giorno in cui arrivano i Treherne, che dal Suffolk hanno viaggiato fin lì solo per lei. La loro figlia Cecily è scomparsa, e per i coniugi la chiave della vicenda è nascosta in Atticus Pünd e il nuovo caso, il romanzo di Conway liberamente ispirato a un fatto di cronaca: l'omicidio di un uomo avvenuto il 15 giugno 2008 nell'albergo di proprietà dei Treherne, dov'era in corso il matrimonio di Cecily. Nella sua ultima telefonata, spiegano, la ragazza era parsa molto turbata, convinta di aver rintracciato nel romanzo alcuni indizi in grado di gettare nuova luce sul caso. Nessuno meglio di Susan, che ha curato la pubblicazione del giallo, può aiutarli a ritrovare la figlia.
Anthony Horowitz firma un nuovo romanzo dal meccanismo narrativo perfetto, un gioco di scatole cinesi, svolte impreviste ed enigmi letterari, dove i personaggi si muovono in un'atmosfera di elegante decadenza e crescente suspense. Nella migliore tradizione dei grandi classici del genere.
