New York Times–bestselling author Anthony Horowitz returns with a dark take on vintage English crime fiction in a brilliantly complex literary thriller with echoes of Agatha Christie. Moonflower Murders, the masterful sequel to his worldwide bestseller Magpie Murders, once again features Susan Ryeland, who is retired from her publishing career and running a small hotel on a Greek island. When the Trehernes come to stay, they share a mysterious story about a murder that took place at the same hotel in Suffolk where their daughter Cecily was married. When Susan learns that Cecily has gone missing after trying to prove the innocence of the Romanian immigrant convicted of the murder, she knows that she must return to England to investigate.
Anthony Horowitz is the author of more than 40 books, including Trigger Mortis, which features original material from Ian Fleming, and The House of Silk and Moriarty, two Sherlock Holmes novels commissioned by the Conan Doyle Estate. His bestselling Alex Rider series for young adults has sold more than 19 million copies worldwide. As a TV screenwriter, he created both Midsomer Murders and the BAFTA-winning Foyle’s War on PBS. Horowitz has been a patron to East Anglia Children’s Hospices and the anti-bullying charity Kidscape, as well as to Home-Start in Suffolk, a charity working with families who are navigating mental health issues, domestic abuse, poverty, and more. In 2014 he was awarded an OBE for his services to literature.
“Moonflower Murders showcases Horowitz’s full battalion of strengths: the whiplash plotting, the leather-smooth prose, the bold energy . . . and above all, the bright spark of joy that ignites the best fiction.
—A. J. Finn, author of The Woman in the Window
