Review

'I raced through Magpie. A very elegant, tense, literary thriller full of misdirection, unreliable witnesses, motherhood, madness, rage, and the most heart-breaking account of infertility I've read'
SARAH VAUGHAN, AUTHOR OF
ANATOMY OF A SCANDAL

‘A dark, sleek, ever-tightening spiral …Completely, terrifyingly BRILLIANT
MARIAN KEYES, AUTHOR OF
GROWN UPS

‘Elizabeth Day has written that rare book I always go hunting for, something that will keep me breathless with suspense but also buoyant with good energy. It is both sinister and comforting, outrageous but grounded, with a head-spinning plot twist…Magpie is a book that needed to exist in the world. It is the book that was missing’
LISA TADDEO, AUTHOR OF
THREE WOMEN AND ANIMAL

‘Magpie is a clever, suspenseful read with a brilliant central pivot and a keen eye for relationships, including the toxic ones. A compelling, twisting read
MATT HAIG, author of
The Midnight Library and The Comfort Book

‘Superbly taut and well-written, noirish with a big and beating heart’
JESSIE BURTON, AUTHOR OF
THE MINIATURIST AND THE CONFESSION

‘An absorbing exploration of infertility and mental illness combined with the pace and plot of a heart-racing thriller … I literally couldn’t put this down. Sublime
SARA COLLINS, AUTHOR OF
THE CONFESSIONS OF FRANNIE LANGTON

‘The most mind-blowing book of the year’
JOANNA CANNON, AUTHOR OF
THE TROUBLE WITH GOATS AND SHEEP AND THREE THINGS ABOUT ELSIE

‘Magpie is tightly plotted, crackling with an uneasy tension, and has an ingenious twist you won’t see coming. Stylish, sinister, and clever, this is a sublime thriller
LOUISE O’NEILL, AUTHOR OF
AFTER THE SILENCE

‘Magnificent. Clever, beautifully-crafted, gripping, warm: I read it in one sitting’
KATE MOSSE, AUTHOR OF
THE CITY OF TEARS
