I started reading this, smug that I knew exactly what was going to happen. I couldn’t have been more wrong. And the more wrong I found myself, the more obsessed I became to find out what the true answer to the story was. This is a thrilling, devilishly dark tale about mothers, envy and control. It’s beautifully written, and speaks for all the women out there whose road to motherhood has been a bit bumpy – even if their story couldn’t possibly be as sinister as this.

What the Critics are Saying
'A dark, sleek, ever-tightening spiral ...Completely, terrifyingly BRILLIANT'
'Elizabeth Day has written that rare book I always go hunting for, something that will keep me breathless with suspense but also buoyant with good energy. It is both sinister and comforting, outrageous but grounded, with a head-spinning plot twist...Magpie is a book that needed to exist in the world. It is the book that was missing'
'Magpie is a clever, suspenseful read with a brilliant central pivot and a keen eye for relationships, including the toxic ones. A compelling, twisting read'
'Superbly taut and well-written, noirish with a big and beating heart'
