Exciting news for anyone who enjoyed The Magpies – the sequel, A Murder of Magpies, will be published on 27 February 2018.
Here’s the blurb:
Five years ago, Jamie Knight lost everything: his home, his wife, their unborn child. But at least the woman responsible, ‘dark angel’ Lucy Newton, was in prison and, slowly, Jamie was able to rebuild his life.
But then Lucy is freed on appeal, and Jamie receives a message from a desperate stranger. Lucy is up to her old tricks – ruining lives for fun.
Jamie agrees to help. But once again, he has no idea what he is getting himself into…
A Murder of Magpies is a novella, approximately 24,000 words long, which means it’s about one-third the length of a full novel. It will be exclusive to Kindle and available in Amazon stores worldwide.
I had enormous fun writing this book and I think it captures the mood and tone of the original so that fans of The Magpies will love it. It was surprising how easy it was to get back into Jamie’s head five years after I wrote the original book. But, most of all, it gave me a delicious shiver of pleasure to bring Lucy Newton back. And in this book, she’s scarier and more despicable than ever…
I can’t wait for you to get reacquainted with Jamie, Kirsty and – most of all – Lucy.
