Inhaltsangabe

Featuring his famous literary Detective Atticus Pund and Susan Ryeland, hero of the worldwide best seller Magpie Murders, a brilliantly brain-teasing literary thriller by Anthony Horowitz. The follow-up to Magpie Murders.

Retired publisher Susan Ryeland is living the good life. She is running a small hotel on a Greek island with her long-term boyfriend, Andreas. It should be everything she's always wanted - but is it? She's exhausted with the responsibilities of making everything work on an island where nothing ever does, and truth be told she's beginning to miss her old life in London.

And then a couple - the Trehearnes - come to stay, and the story they tell about an unfortunate murder that took place on the same day and in the same hotel in which their daughter was married is such a strange and mysterious one that Susan finds herself increasingly fascinated by it. And when the Trehearnes tell her that their daughter is now missing, Susan knows that she must return to London and find out what really happened....

"So clever, a story within a story within a story. A triumph, and a lovely way to spend a weekend...." (Kate Mosse)

A masterpiece of crime fiction

This is the second book of the series and I hope Antony Horowitz will keep writing more. I had already listened to the Magpie Murders and knew by now that I would get a very elaborate framework story that would take up a good part of the entire book, much more than such second story lines usually do. If you have not read the first book, a word of warning might be in order. You will get two complete stories, you could even say two complete books. Both are thrilling, surprising, fascinating and somehow connected. You will perhaps need a bit of patience but that patience will be amply rewarded by one of the most surprising plots in crime fiction. You will never in a lifetime guess who committed the murders. And although the book is written in the tradition of Agatha Christie, it is much more and much better than anything she ever came up with. If you are fed up with crime fiction series which seem like a déjà-vu, this book is what you are looking for. You can very well read Moonflower Murders as a stand-along book, but you might want to start with Magpie Murders because of the many recurring characters and the additional pleasure to meet them again in Moonflower Murders.
