Magpie Murders
内容简介  · · · · · ·

When editor Susan Ryeland is given the tattered manuscript of Alan Conway’s latest novel, she has little idea it will change her life. She’s worked with the revered crime writer for years and his detective, Atticus Pund, is renowned for solving crimes in the sleepy English villages of the 1950s. As Susan knows only too well, vintage crime sells handsomely. It’s just a shame that it means dealing with an author like Alan Conway…

But Conway’s latest tale of murder at Pye Hall is not quite what it seems. Yes, there are dead bodies and a host of intriguing suspects, but hidden in the pages of the manuscript there lies another story: a tale written between the very words on the page, telling of real-life jealousy, greed, ruthless ambition and murder.

From Sunday Times bestseller Anthony Horowitz comes Magpie Murders, his deliciously dark take on the vintage crime novel, brought bang- up-to-date with a fiendish modern twist.

THE NUMBER ONE EBOOK BESTSELLER

‘Want to read a great whodunnit? Anthony Horowitz has one for you: MAGPIE MURDERS. It’s as good as an Agatha Christie. Better, in some ways. Cleverer.’ Stephen King

‘The finest crime novel of the year’ Daily Mail

*****

Seven for a mystery that needs to be solved . . .

But Conway’s latest tale of murder at Pye Hall is not quite what it seems.

作者简介  · · · · · ·

安东尼•霍洛维茨,英国知名侦探小说作家、编剧。

一九五五年四月,霍洛维茨出生于伦敦一个富裕的犹太家庭。童年时期虽生活优渥,但并不快乐。据他回忆,作为一个超重又内向的孩子,经常遭到校长体罚,在学校的经历也被他描述成“残酷的体验”。八岁时,他就意识到自己会成为一名作家; 他 说:“只有在写作时,我才会感到由衷的快乐”。母亲是霍洛维茨在文学世界的启蒙者,不仅引导他阅读大量书籍,甚至在他十三岁生日时送给他一副人类骸骨。他表示,这件礼物让他意识到“所有人的最终结局都不过是白骨一具”。其父因与时任英国首相哈罗德•威尔逊的政客圈子过从甚密,为了自保,将财产秘密转入瑞士的隐秘账户。结果在霍洛维茨二十二岁时,父亲因癌症去世,大额财产下落不明使霍洛维茨与母亲陷入困境,自此家境一落千丈。

一九七七年,霍洛维茨毕业于约克大学英国文学与艺术史专业。之后他果然朝着作家之路迈进:先以《少年间谍艾利克斯》系列享誉国际文坛,全球畅销千万册,继而成为众人皆知的福尔摩斯专家,是柯南•道尔产权会有史以来唯一授权续写福尔摩斯故事的作家。代表作《丝之屋》畅销全球三十五个国家。此外,之后创作的《莫里亚蒂》和《谋杀字符》也广受好评。还被伊恩•弗莱明产权会选为“007系列”的续写者,二〇一五年出版了Trigger Mortis一书。

同时,对侦探女王阿加莎•克里斯蒂的热爱,也给了霍洛维茨接连不断的创作灵感。他曾为独立电视台(ITV)的《大侦探波洛》系列多部剧集担当编剧。二〇一六年,他向阿加莎致敬的小说《喜鹊谋杀案》,一经面世就在欧美文坛引起巨大轰动。荣获亚马逊、美国国家公共电台、《华盛顿邮报》、Esquire年度最佳图书,被《纽约时报》《时代周刊》等媒体盛赞为“一场为黄金时代侦探小说爱好者而设的盛宴”。在日本更是史无前例地横扫五大推理榜单,均以绝对优势荣登第一名的宝座。

作为知名电视编剧,霍洛维茨还撰写了大量剧本。除波洛系列外,他的编剧作品《战地神探》(Foyle’s War)获得英国电影和电视艺术学院奖(BAFTA)。

二〇一四年,他因在文学领域里的杰出贡献而获颁大英帝国官佐勋章(OBE)。
