Magpie Summary

Magpie by Elizabeth Day

'Terrifyingly BRILLIANT'
MARIAN KEYES, AUTHOR OF GROWN UPS

'A book that needed to exist in the world. It is the book that was missing'
LISA TADDEO, AUTHOR OF THREE WOMEN AND ANIMAL

'Magnificent: I read it one sitting'
KATE MOSSE, AUTHOR OF THE CITY OF TEARS

When Marisa meets Jake, everything falls into place. But then their new lodger Kate arrives.

Something isn't right about her. It's the way she looks at Jake, keeps her toothbrush right next to theirs and constantly asks questions about the baby they are trying for. Or maybe it's all in Marisa's head. That's what Jake thinks. And she trusts him, doesn't she?

But Marisa knows something is wrong, and she is determined to find out why, even if it costs her everything.

'A pacy, stylish thriller in which suspense is accompanied by fist-pumping feminism and, perhaps toughest of all, hope.'

'A dark, sleek, ever-tightening spiral ...Completely, terrifyingly BRILLIANT'
MARIAN KEYES, AUTHOR OF GROWN UPS

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'
LISA TADDEO, AUTHOR OF THREE WOMEN AND ANIMAL
