It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma” ~ Winston Churchill
“Magpie Murders” is a story within a story — a book within a book — a mystery within a mystery. Editor Susan Ryeland begins reading her client’s book over a weekend only to find out that while she was reading, the author allegedly took his life. But did he? Also, the ending of the book is missing. She sets out to solve both mysteries and gets so much more them the bargained for.
The catch of this book, however, is that you read the book within a book along with Susan and become wrapped up in both mysteries. This was really good and kept my interest although I did feel it didn’t have to be quite so long. I actually enjoyed the novel within better than the story about Susan (but to be clear — I did enjoy it all) I do recommend this book. 4 1/2 stars 🤩🤩🤩🤩✨
