When was the last time you stayed up all night to finish a book? For me, it was just this week when I started Magpie Murders, a compelling mystery within a mystery, and then could not put it down.
The novel begins with Susan Ryeland, Head of Fiction at Cloverleaf Books, sitting down to read the manuscript of Magpie Murders by best selling author Alan Conway. From the outset, we know something is different about this book. She narrates:
"I opened the wine. I unscrewed the salsa. I lit a cigarette. I began to read the book
as you are about to. But before you do that, I have to warn you.
This book changed my life."
Who could stop reading after that?
