Product Description

Summer in London: the sun is finally shining, the flowers are in bloom, and life is humming merrily along for book editor Samantha Clair, off to lunch with her old friend, art dealer Aidan Merriam. Humming merrily until she learns that his partner has just been found dead in their gallery, slumped over his desk with a gun in his hand. Could anything be worse? Oh yes, the police investigation is being led by Inspector Jake Field, who just happens to be Sam's new boyfriend. And Aidan, who just happens to be Sam's ex-boyfriend, wants Sam's help. Finding herself drawn into another investigation, Sam does the only sensible thing and calls her mother. Before long, Sam finds her loyalties stretched to the limit as she herself is threatened.

Armed with nothing more than her trusty weapons of satire, cynicism and a stock of irrelevant information culled from novels, Sam races to find a killer who is determined to find her first in the newest fast-paced, uproarious novel in the critically acclaimed series from New York Times bestselling author Judith Flanders.


"Susan Duerden voices Sam's gloriously snarky comments with wry elegance." ---Library Journal Audio Review

Advance Praise for A MURDER OF MAGPIES: "Hilarious, big-hearted, clever, whip-smart and devious. A truly wonderful crime novel by a brilliant writer... Judith Flanders has found that difficult, magical ground between humor and crime, where the death is never trivialized, but the territory is hysterically pilloried. Brava!" -Louise Penny, #1 New York Times bestselling author of How the Light Gets In "Deadly funny. Judith Flanders' wry take on publishing and murder should be on everybody's wish list." -Donna Leon, New York Times bestselling author of By Its Cover "Wickedly funny... the perfect storm of an entertaining read... Loved it." -London Times
