Today I would like to share my review of THE MAGPIES by Mark Edwards this is the first introduction to Lucy and is a real pageturner. Tomorrow I will be sharing my review of the novella sequel: Murder of Magpies.
Available from AMAZON
When Jamie and Kirsty move into their first home together, they are full of optimism. The future, in which they plan to get married and start a family, is bright. The other residents of their building seem friendly too, including the Newtons, a married couple who welcome them to the building with open arms.
But then strange things start to happen. Dead rats are left on their doorstep. They hear disturbing noises, and much worse, in the night. After Jamie’s best friend is injured in a horrific accident, Jamie and Kirsty find themselves targeted by a campaign of terror.
As they are driven to the edge of despair, Jamie vows to fight back—but he has no idea what he is really up against . . .
A situation everyone can relate too, neighbours from hell, this book shows in depth how people can be torn apart by the actions of others. It was pretty obvious from page 1 who was doing the victimising and it is a very believable scenario although I would like to think the Police would have been a bit more proactive. The reason for 4 stars rather than 5 is that it was a bit lacking on the suspense side for me and there were no surprises it was obvious what was going to happen next all the way through but a very good book
