A Murder of Magpies

By Judith Flanders

Published Mar 2014

You know when you have one of those days at the office? You spill coffee on your keyboard, the finance director goes on an expenses rampage and then, before you know it, your favourite author is murdered. Don’t you just hate when that happens?

When Samantha Clair agreed to publish journalist Kit Lovell’s tell-all book on the death of fashion designer Rodrigo Aleman, she could scarcely have imagined the dangers ahead. But she soon finds herself on a rollercoaster 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.

Funny and terrific.

Elizabeth Buchan

Mordantly funny.

Philip Kerr

I had no idea that the publishing world could be so funny – and so dangerous… reminds me of the comic crime novels of Donald E. Westlake, with its own humorous, deadly edge.

David Morrell

This witty crime caper…is a delight from first page to last.

NJ Cooper

Wickedly funny.
