Reviews

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, author of Murder as a Fine Art


-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 humour and crime, where the death is never trivialized, but the territory is hysterically pilloried. Brava!- --Louise Penny, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Long Way Home-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-The array of delightful and believable characters, as well as a neat turn at the end, will leave readers well satisfied and anticipating the next installment.- --Publishers Weekly-A layered mystery in which fingers can be pointed in a variety of directions... full of charm and characters worth visiting again.- --Kirkus-Wickedly funny... the perfect storm of an entertaining read... Loved it.- --London Times-From the first page you want Samantha Clair to be your new best friend... [Flanders] keeps the reader intrigued and laughing in equal measure.- --Daily Mail (UK)-Mordantly funny; at last a novel about the world of fashion that seems to find it as ridiculous as I do.- --Philip Kerr, author of A Man Without Breath-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, author of Murder as a Fine Art
