My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is very much a sequel to the Magpie Murders and probably needs to be read after that one. As in the first book a ‘contemporary’ murder in the novel is matched to a ‘fictional’ murder from a crime book written by Alan Conway, a character in both Horowitz novels. Conway’s book is contained in this one. As a result there are two plots and two sets of characters, which requires the reader to pay attention. One can only admire the skill of an author to write such a complex novel!
