Présentation de l'éditeur

From the #1 Bestselling Author of CATCH YOUR DEATH

Fear lives next door...

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: the horror writer and the middle-aged herbalist who live upstairs, and the Newtons, a married couple who welcome them to the building with open arms.

At first, the two couples get on well. 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 Jamie and Kirsty are driven to the edge of despair, Jamie vows to fight back – but he has no idea what he is really up against…

THE MAGPIES is a terrifying psychological thriller in which the monsters are not vampires or demons but the people we live next door to. It is a nightmare that could happen to anyone.


"A nailbiter of suspense with terrific characterisation." –Peter James on KILLING CUPID (Sunday Express Books of the Year 2012)

"Masterfully done...They make slick, well-plotted, ridiculously tense thrillers look deceptively easy to write' –Matt Haig on CATCH YOUR DEATH

"A very clever, very pacey story that kept me guessing right to the end." –Elizabeth Haynes on KILLING CUPID

pas grand chose à en dire, si ce n'est que je m'attendais à mieux. Les personnages sont creux, de plus, leur libido est telle qu'on se croirait parfois dans un livre X !!
Bref, on attend que l'histoire prenne de l'envol, puis on est déçu par la fin...

HASH(0x9220a5b8) étoiles sur 5 "Witches Or Psychopaths"..................... 19 juin 2013
Par Robin Lee - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This was an excellent horror/psychological thriller, that had so many twists and turns every time I flipped another page my heart was pounding...All the way to the end it kept you guessing, and on the edge of your seat...It was an intriguing, suspenseful, terrifying rollercoaster ride...This premise has been done before, but everytime I thought I had the plot figured out, something strange and supernatural would happen.....Great characterization, which I look for in all my novels that I read because without that you can't connect with the story...You feel this couple's every emotion spilling from the pages, fright, anger, severe pain and confusion.....The author made me care about this cute couple just starting out with their future dreams.....

Will Jamie and Kirsty be able to endure their neighbors from hell...Will their neighbors from hell end up killing them...This will all eventually come to a firey, explosive and very heart breaking ending....
So are Lucy and Chris Newton, "witches or psychopaths", because they seem to be able to cast spells over alot of people....

After I was done reading this book I actually thought the entire apartment building with the rest of the occupants were a little strange...

HASH(0x9220a9e4) étoiles sur 5 Too many loose ends.... 7 janvier 2014
Par Alisha R - Publié sur Amazon.com

I came across this book and of course read the reviews which were pretty good. I love any suspense thrillers but this, for me, was on the boring side. I took a lot of breaks and almost stopped reading but I did finally finish it. At the end, the author actually explains several things that we're left unexplained due to receiving questions from readers. I don't think you should have to have a separate chapter entirely devoted to tying up loose ends if the book is written well. I haven't read anything by this author before and I doubt I will after this book. My advice, pass this one up.

HASH(0x9220ac0c) étoiles sur 5 Serendipity...what a great find!!! 5 octobre 2013
Par Avidreader18 - Publié sur Amazon.com

I'm so excited to find these two authors. I'm on my third book of theirs in 3 days. Being very fussy about 'psychological thrillers.' I can say that this met every one of my requirements for a great read in this genre. I look forward to reading all of their books. You really feel the characters and can't help but like them, just a bit. I hope that USA's avid psychological thriller readers, find you. Keep them coming, you have a customer for life. Don't go Steven King whacky, lol. I think his best book was 'Misery.' You keep everything very realistic...I don't have to think "that could never happen."

This book and 'Killing Cupid' is a good place to start. I have just ordered 'Forward Slash.' I will leave a review after it is finished. I expect another late night ;).

Note to authors...I appreciate that you don't use the killing of animals in your books. I think your style is great.
I wish you both luck and keep the books coming. I have an unbridled imagination, as you both do.

HASH(0x9220ab04) étoiles sur 5 Seriously freaked me out!! 8 mai 2013

What a find to come across this book! I loved it from the moment I read the Prologue! Wanting to find out why this nameless woman had crossed out Paradise and put Hell - had moved out of her flat, you get a sense of foreboding as soon as you realise Jamie and Kirsty have moved in... Forget neighbours from hell. This is 100% worse and evil... A very well written book, from a great author! So happy I came across it - Thank you for such a thrilling but nail biting scary book - I shall now have sleepless nights .... Now that I'm onto 'Kissing Games'!!

HASH(0x9220afb4) étoiles sur 5 Superb heart thumping rollercoaster read - will make you question your sanity and your neighbours!, 5 mars 2014

Jamie and Kirsty buy their dream flat and they think they are embarking on their perfect life together. But things soon start to turn sour for them. You would have thought finding a dead rat on your doorstep would be bad enough but this story takes you way beyond that. A fantastic psychological thriller that had me hooked from the start. The emotional rollercoaster ride for the young couple gathers superb momentum and you want to jump off and scream for it to stop but those neighbours just won't let it happen! This should be at the top of your must read list.
