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 best selling 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.… (mere)

dnf @ pg 70 this just didn't do it for me. the "agatha christie" bit were lacking the fundamental understanding of human nature and just... weren't it for me. and since they comprise most of the book it's just ehh no thanks

Wow, was this a perfect book for me. As is my usual custom, and with extra emphasis here because of the style of this book, I will not discuss plot points or delve into details about how the book is organized. I will say that it has a LOT of Agatha Christie in it and she was always one of my favorites when I was growing up. It also has a good bit of the modern day and the world of publishing, which is something I love to read about now. I was hooked from the start and I read the last part in one long stretch because, cliché alert, I could not put it down. The author showed an incredibly deft touch at pacing as it could easily have bogged down given the way it moves around and the fact that it is 458 pages long. I was not surprised to see in the "About the Author" that he has written extensively for television especially on "Midsommer Murders" and "Foyle's War." He clearly understands how to construct a story and how to move it along while seeming to be taking his time. I will definitely be looking to read more by him. ( )

A very intelligently written novel within a novel, one intertwined with the other. ( )

Very enjoyable pastiche of classic style mysteries, with knowing nods to all of the greats, from Dame Agatha (of course!) to modern eye-candy like "Midsomer Murders." In fact, you could say that you get real value for money here, as there are TWO pastiches: a full Christie-style novel within the novel, tucked into the story of the publisher's editor who unleashes her inner Nancy Drew, investigating the suspicious death of the author just after he hands in his manuscript. Horowitz, who has been involved in the creation and writing of some of the greats of the last 20 years ("MM," "Foyles War" and the David Suchet Poirot episodes) has a LOT of fun with the tropes. ( )

A far cry from his Alex Rider series, this is a classic whodunit murder mystery. It's uniqueness is the story within the story. Susan Ryeland is an editor for Cloverleaf Books, and we read along with her the 9th installment of Alan Conway’s latest Atticus Pund murder mystery, entitled Magpie Murders, but the last chapter where the crime is solved is missing. Then, Alan Conway dies under suspicious circumstances, sending Susan off on her own investigation. Clever work. Games and codes galore. ( )

A preternaturally brainy novel within a novel that’s both a pastiche and a deconstruction of golden-age whodunits.

Bestseller Horowitz (The House of Silk) provides a treat for fans of golden age mysteries with this tour de force that both honors and pokes fun at the genre.

But I’m not sure it actually matters what we read. Our lives continue along the straight lines that have been set out for us. Fiction merely allows us a glimpse of the alternative. Maybe that’s one of the reasons we enjoy it.
