From the #1 Bestselling Author of CATCH YOUR DEATH Fear lives next door... When Jamie and Kirsty move into their first home together they are full of optimism. The future, in which they plan to get married and start a family, is bright. The other residents of their building seem friendly too: the horror writer and the middle-aged herbalist who live upstairs, and the Newtons, a married couple who welcome them to the building with open arms. At first, the two couples get on well. But then strange things start to happen. Dead rats are left on their doorstep. They hear disturbing noises, and much worse, in the night. After Jamie's best friend is injured in a horrific accident, Jamie and Kirsty find themselves targeted by a campaign of terror. As Jamie and Kirsty are driven to the edge of despair, Jamie vows to fight back – but he has no idea what he is really up against… THE MAGPIES is a terrifying psychological thriller in which the monsters are not vampires or demons but the people we live next door to. It is a nightmare that could happen to anyone. PRAISE FOR MARK EDWARDS, with LOUISE VOSS "A nailbiter of suspense with terrific characterisation." –Peter James on KILLING CUPID (Sunday Express Books of the Year 2012) "Masterfully done...They make slick, well-plotted, ridiculously tense thrillers look deceptively easy to write' –Matt Haig on CATCH YOUR DEATH "A very clever, very pacey story that kept me guessing right to the end." –Elizabeth Haynes on KILLING CUPID

This worked really well as an audio book. I don't think Iwould have enjoyed it as much if I had read it straight. But it entertained me immensely on my long commute.

⚠⚠⚠⚠⚠ 5 'It Could Be You' Stars This book totally messed with my head! I loved it!I'll admit it's a strange one and I haven't read anything like it before so to me it's definitely original. It's also very creepy and very tense. The author is great at building tension, it starts from the very first p...

2.5 stars I find it difficult to rate this book, as some parts I thought were really good, and some not so much.The idea behind the book I found to be good, it seems like a good theme to base a story on. The first few chapters started a bit slow, but the story picks up as more and more stuff happens...
