Magpie Murders: A Novel Audiobook by Anthony Horowitz is the most recent material created by the author of the Alex Rider series, and the New York Times bestselling Moriarty and Trigger Mortis. In this occasion, the author offers an audiobook the weave of a classic whodunit mystery a la Agatha Christie with an unnerving and clever modern times mystery.
At the moment of receiving the latest manuscript of Alan Conway’s novel, Editor Susan Reyland thinks that this new material won’t be any different than the previous ones. Since she has been working with the author’s adventures of Atticus Pünd for years, she is quite familiar with the way the fantasy detective solves mysteries worrying lethargic English communities. Alan’s traditional style of writing, homage to classic British mystery queens Agatha Christie and Dorothy Sayers, has proved very successful with fans, critics, and economically speaking, of course.
The latest mystery Pünd has to solve at Pye Hall has everything fans ask for: a murky manor house, dead bodies and a group of fascinating suspects; but to the eye of Susan, there is something hidden in the manuscript: a story of real-life jealousy, greed, brutal ambition, and assassination.
Magpie Murders: A Novel Audiobook by Anthony Horowitz is an intelligent and well-written material that takes the listener to assume the place of the detective while hearing the 15 hours and 47 minutes mystery adventure of Detective Atticus Pünd and Editor Susan Reyland solving two mysteries in the fiction and in the material real world.
During its 15 hours and 47 minutes time of playing, narrated by Samantha Bond and Allan Corduner, the audiobook tells two stories: the novel written by Conway and the process of editing that material made by Susan Reyland. The two stories shows that Horowitz is not a simple writer and the mystery narrated is no simple at all; but although trying to keep with the plot is quite complicated, it is an enjoyable reading and the conclusions from it are never disappointed.
The first story pleases those who are true fans of the whodunit style, especially the admirers of British writer Agatha Christie, setting the adventure in the 1950s in small and quiet town in the zone of Saxby on Avon at Pye Hall Mansion. All of these settings plus the array of characters displayed along the audiobook will pleased those fans of the classic British mystery books written by Christie herself and Dorothy Sayers. And it is most likely that the creator of Poirot and Miss Marple’s adventures would have cherished the sense of humor used by Horowitz and the portrait of her stories in today London. On the other hand, the second story establishes the making of classic mystery books as well as some critics about the material itself.
As it is stated by the USA Today Newspaper, the audiobook could be shorter and more insightful about the whole criticism of the genre in the narration of the two interwoven stories. Even though, listeners will find an enjoyable reading with “two satisfying mysteries for the price of one”
