Description du produit

Revue de presse

"I had no idea that the publishing world could be so funny and so dangerous. A Murder of Magpies reminds me of the comic crime novels of Donald E. Westlake, with its own humorous, deadly edge. Judith Flanders has created one of the most engaging main characters I've encountered in quite a while. Indeed, even the minor characters are memorable. I chuckled while I feared for their safety, and hope to meet them in another novel." --David Morrell

Présentation de l'éditeur

When Samantha Clair agreed to publish journalist Kit Lovell’s tell-all book on the death of fashion designer Rodrigo Alemán, she could scarcely have imagined the dangers ahead. But she soon finds herself on a roller-coaster ride into the dark realms of fashion, money laundering and murder, armed with nothing but her e-reader and her trusty stock of sarcasm... A pitch-perfect crime caper that offers a glimpse into life behind the glamorous facades of fashion and publishing.

I didn't know to expect of this novel, in fact I hadn't intended to buy it, but whilst browsing the Amazon Kindle site, my finger slipped and hit 'buy now with one click' so, there were are, pays to take care when browsing.

So I was between books and thought I would give this a go. Set in a publishing house one of Sam Clair's client's manuscript goes missing together with the client and murder is suspected. It's believed the book reveals money laundering and the murder of a fashionista.

This book wasn't overly light weight but I loved the characters, Sam (the publisher), her mum Helena who's a top tax lawyer and the detective Jake. Funny, quirky and a good read, so much so I have bought the second book by Judith Flanders (but not by accident) A Bed of Scorpions.

Very well written (as one would have expected from a writer of Judith Flanders' professional background); with some very funny moments. I immediately wanted to know if the author had written a sequel. To my joy, she has, and I have already ordered it. I can't wait to see how the main protaganist's life progresses.

I read it in a day. Light, amusing, a little confusing due to numerous characters. Sort of race to conclusion

Judith Flanders is a well known author of history books about the Victorian period but, with this novel, she has changed direction completely, writing a contemporary crime story. Having enjoyed her previous works, I was interested to see whether this change would be a success and, I am happy to say, that she is obviously as talented as a novelist as she is as a historian.

Samantha Clair is a “middle aged middling-ly successful” editor at Timms & Ross. She is, in fact, the kind of woman who run successful publishing offices. Her authors are not generally the kind of literary successes who win awards, but those who write ‘women’s fiction’ or gossipy books. In other words, the kinds of books which pay for all those respected literary works to be published, usually at a loss. When we meet Sam, she is having problems with two of her most popular authors and their new books. Her bestselling and star author, Breda McManon, has changed direction and she hates her new novel . She also has concerns about the legal implications of Kit Lovell’s (fashion journalist, author and friend) highly contentious new manuscript about a Spanish fashion designer; including financial irregularities and the possible cover up of his murder.

Sam likes a quiet life. She has recently broken up with her partner and enjoys living in her North London apartment, the company of her neighbours and her work. She muses that, “I only feel great when I’m lying on the sofa reading a book, possibly while simultaneously eating biscuits,” which is a point of view I can sympathise with totally. In fact, Sam is an extremely likeable heroine who, despite her unwillingness to enter into an adventure is a loyal friend. When Kit goes missing, she is determined to discover his whereabouts, along with her intelligent and super efficient mother, Helena, and Inspector Jake Field.

This is a fun, intelligent and witty crime novel. It has a great plot, excellent characters and a setting which will appeal to all readers, with a sharp and satirical look at the publishing industry. I sincerely hope that Judith Flanders will make this a series , as I would love to see Sam involved in some more crime solving.
