What Sisters and Oblates Are Reading

The Magpie Murders

The Magpie Murders
by Anthony Horowitz

Sister Mary Lou Kownacki

Last summer I read The Chalk Pit by Ruth Galloway and then The Late Show by Michael Connelly where he introduces a strong new female detective of the LAPD, Renee Ballard. This series will definitely become part of my repertoire.

The best mystery I read though was Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz. It had a great twist where an editor is reading the latest novel by her blockbuster selling author only to discover that the last chapter is missing. Then we find out that the author has been killed and the editor becomes the lead detective into his murder. It’s a clever and well-written book which keeps you guessing. All you can ask from a mystery.
