Waterstones Says

In this dazzlingly clever sequel to his bestselling Magpie Murders, Anthony Horowitz returns to the world of literary detective Atticus Pund and now retired publisher Susan Ryeland.

A labyrinth of clues. A mystery novel hiding a deadly secret. A killer with a fiendish plot: a brilliantly intricate and original thriller from the bestselling author of Magpie Murders.

Retired publisher Susan Ryeland is running a small hotel on a Greek island with her long-term boyfriend. But life isn't as idyllic as it should be: exhausted by the responsibility of making everything work on an island where nothing ever does, Susan is beginning to miss her literary life in London - even though her publishing career once entangled her in a lethal literary murder plot.

So when an English couple come to visit with tales of a murder that took place in a hotel the same day their daughter Cecily was married there, Susan can't help but find herself fascinated.

And when they tell her that Cecily has gone missing a few short hours after reading Atticus Pund Takes The Case, a crime novel Susan edited some years previously, Susan knows she must return to London to find out what has happened.

The clues to the murder and to Cecily's disappearance must lie within the pages of this novel.

But to save Cecily, Susan must place her own life in mortal danger ...

MEDIA REVIEWS

'A beautiful puzzle: fiendishly clever and hugely entertaining. A masterpiece.' - Lucy Foley, author of The Hunting Party

'I absolutely love this series of fiendishly clever literary mysteries[...] and I wolfed this new one down.' - Good Housekeeping

'Moonflower Murders showcases Horowitz's full battalion of strengths: the whiplash plotting, the leather-smooth prose, the bold energy and, above all, the bright spark of joy that ignites the best fiction. Sophisticated, literate novels aren't supposed to be so much fun.' - AJ Finn, author of The Woman in the Window

'So clever, a story within a story. A triumph, and the best way to spend a weekend reading.' - Kate Mosse

'Elegantly written, brilliantly structured, deceptively accessible, a masterpeice by an author at the top of his game.' - Adam Hamdy

'Absolutely loved it. So clever, just masterful stuff.' Richard Osman, author of The Thursday Murder Club

'We all want to go away on foreign holidays - but I was reading Anthony Horowitz's new book based in Greece and oh my God I could taste the wine, I could see the sea, I could smell that lovely dusky air! ... It's so much fun, I'm absolutely loving it.' - Ryan Tubridy, RTE Radio On

'A mind-bending mystery to tie readers in knots.' - BBC

'Funny, profound and at times frightening, this is Horowitz at his very best. And the perfect jumping-on point for newcomers.' - The Sun

'A cracking read ... Anthony Horowitz has written another winner in my book. I couldn't wait to get to the end to see if I had the right culprit.' - Woman's Way

'A masterful and muscular whodunnit ... glorious' - The Business Post

'There is no mystery writer whose puzzles make me think, 'Ooh, I can't wait!' more than Anthony Horowitz. He is a master of the cunning plot device, and brings zest and originality to the traditional murder mystery novel.' - Sophie Hannah

'It's a complex plot, a novel within a novel, where the reader gets to grapple with the whodunnit both in the main narrative and through an entirely separate detective story[...] They are both gripping reads.' - Irish Times

“Mr Horowitz does it again - an Excellent sequel to the (equally excellent) Magpie Murders”

When I read Magpie Murders (no ‘The’!) I never thought that there would be a sequel however Anthony Horowitz has worked his magic and produced a second story which is just as devious, gripping and page turning as the... More

“Great old-fashioned whodunnit with a modern twist”

I really enjoyed this cleverly-plotted book with all its twists and red herrings although it took me a while to read because, with the book-within-a-book, there were so many characters to remember. I was attracted by... More
