Magpie Murders

Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz, 236 pages

I always like a good whodunnit, and Christa's review had me putting this book on my to-read list. To recap the story, book editor Susan Ryeland is reading the latest installment of the Atticus Pund mystery series when she discovers the book is incomplete and that the author, Alan Conway, has died, supposedly by suicide.  The missing chapters cannot be found on his computer.  Additionally, as Ryeland tries to track down people who might know what happened to the missing chapters, she realizes that there are certain similarities between Conway's life and his book.  Could clues in his story help determine whether Conway really killed himself?

The book-within-a-book is clever, and the tones of each "book" were different, adding to the authenticity of the experience.
