Last of the Magpies.... Nooooooo!! Mark Edwards, thank you for writing 2 more short stories to round out the incredible story of The Magpies but I am sad that it is over now. Magpies was the first of your books that I read and loved and this final installment was wonderful. My only complaint being that it was too short!! Yes I know it is a short story but I was still wanting more!
Lucy Newton is still free and Jamie and Kirsty still live in fear. Jamie has stayed in the UK, unable to return to Australia while Lucy still hasn't been caught. Kirsty is trying really hard to move on with her life and wants nothing more to do with anything - including the podcast that Jamie has found himself involved in. I loved reading the extracts from Lucy's secret memoirs - that could have been a book on its own! A satisfying conclusion to a fantastic series - bravo Mark!
Thanks to Amazon Publishing, Thomas and Mercer and Netgalley for my advanced copy of this book to read. All opinions are my own and are in no way biased.
Thankyou to NetGalley, Amazon Publishing UK, Thomas and Mercer and the author, Mark Edwards, for the opportunity to read a digital copy of Last of the Magpies in exchange for an honest and unbiased opinion. I thought this book provided a good read. The storyline was well thought out and written with well developed characters. Can always count on this author for a gripping tale to while away the hours. Well worth a read.
I received a review copy of this masterpiece by Mark Edwards. Another gripping tale and the finale of the scary Lucy Newton. As usual, this is another great page turner by Mark Edwards. Even if you haven't read the other books in the 'Magpies' series, the clever writing put bits in the book so you know who's who and where they stand in the story. Fantastic read Mark, thanks so much xx
The first book I read by Mark Edwards was Follow You Home. And I was hooked. Six months later i’ve read every book he’s written solo and the first two DI Lennon books, co-written with Louise Voss. Am I hooked? You bet I am. After I finished reading A Murder Of Magpies recently I was left thinking ‘what happened to Jamie and Kirsty and of course the murderous psychopath Lucy Newton?’ Thankfully after reading a review copy of the aptly titled Last Of The Magpies my questions were answered. This is a relatively short read, around 100 pages, but typical of Mark’s writing style the twists and turns make the book unputdownable and keep the reader guessing right through book until the end. Another great book and well worth reading.
