Editorial Reviews

Review

'Mark Edwards achieves what other writers yearn for, by creating characters that genuinely feel like real people, individuals you know personally–and then puts them into the scariest of situations so that we cannot help but suffer with them. Edwards takes the places that should feel safe and subverts them, shifting the ground beneath our feet, until we’re left clinging to the book, hoping against hope for a positive conclusion. There’s something deeply unsettling about The Magpies – and that’s exactly as it should be.' —Elizabeth Haynes

'The Magpies is absorbing, claustrophobic and terrifying. Read this book! Then get a top notch alarm system fitted in your house.' —Helen Fitzgerald, author of The Cry

'A spectacularly gripping novel, full of intrigue, mystery, fear and suspense.' —Kim, The Book Worm

'The narrative arc pulls you in and refuses to let you go until you've found out how it ends.' —Lloyd Paige

'You simply need to know what is going to happen next, even if you are shouting at Jamie and Kirsty just to get the hell out of there! I highly recommend this book; it is a thrilling and hugely entertaining read.' —Jonathan Hill

'The Magpies is a cunningly-crafted piece of psychological crime fiction which burrows into the brain with a plentiful supply of ‘what if’ moments that’ll have you concerned about your own closest neighbours.' —Keith B. Walters

About the Author

Mark writes psychological thrillers. He loves stories in which scary things happen to ordinary people and is inspired by writers such as Stephen King, Ira Levin, Ruth Rendell, Ian McEwan, Val McDermid, and Donna Tartt.

Mark is now a full time writer. Before that, he once picked broad beans, answered complaint calls for a rail company, taught English in Japan, and worked as a marketing director.

Mark co-published a series of crime novels with Louise Voss. The Magpies, his first solo, topped the UK Kindle charts for three months when it first released. Since its success, the novel has been re-edited and published by Thomas & Mercer. Mark is now writing his next spine-tingling thriller to be published in late 2014.

He lives in England with his girlfriend, their three children, and a ginger cat.
