Description :  "Magpie Murders is a double puzzle for puzzle fans, who don’t often get the classicism they want from contemporary thrillers." --Janet Maslin, The New York Times<br /><br />A New York Times Bestseller | #1 Indie Next Pick | NPR Best Book of 2017 | Amazon Best Book of 2017 | Washington Post Best Book of 2017 | Esquire Best Book of 2017<br /><br />From the New York Times bestselling author of Moriarty and Trigger Mortis, this fiendishly brilliant, riveting thriller weaves a classic whodunit worthy of Agatha Christie into a chilling, ingeniously original modern-day mystery.<br /><br />When editor Susan Ryeland is given the manuscript of Alan Conway’s latest novel, she has no reason to think it will be much different from any of his others. After working with the bestselling crime writer for years, she’s intimately familiar with his detective, Atticus Pünd, who solves mysteries disturbing sleepy English villages. An homage to queens of classic British crime such as Agatha Christie and Dorothy Sayers, Alan’s traditional formula has proved hugely successful. So successful that Susan must continue to put up with his troubling behavior if she wants to keep her job.<br /><br />Conway’s latest tale has Atticus Pünd investigating a murder at Pye Hall, a local manor house. Yes, there are dead bodies and a host of intriguing suspects, but the more Susan reads, the more she’s convinced that there is another story hidden in the pages of the manuscript: one of real-life jealousy, greed, ruthless ambition, and murder.<br /><br />Masterful, clever, and relentlessly suspenseful, Magpie Murders is a deviously dark take on vintage English crime fiction in which the reader becomes the detective.

Description :  Internationally bestselling author Anthony Horowitz's nail-biting new novel plunges us back into the dark and complex world of Detective Sherlock Holmes and Professor James Moriarty—dubbed "the Napoleon of crime"—in the aftermath of their fateful struggle at the Reichenbach Falls.<br /><br />Days after Holmes and Moriarty disappear into the waterfall's churning depths, Frederick Chase, a senior investigator at New York's infamous Pinkerton Detective Agency, arrives in Switzerland. Chase brings with him a dire warning: Moriarty's death has left a convenient vacancy in London's criminal underworld. There is no shortage of candidates to take his place—including one particularly fiendish criminal mastermind.<br /><br />Chase is assisted by Inspector Athelney Jones, a Scotland Yard detective and devoted student of Holmes's methods of deduction, whom Conan Doyle introduced in The Sign of Four. The two men join forces and fight their way through the sinuous streets of Victorian London—from the elegant squares of Mayfair to the shadowy wharfs and alleyways of the Docks—in pursuit of this sinister figure, a man much feared but seldom seen, who is determined to stake his claim as Moriarty's successor.<br /><br />Riveting and deeply atmospheric, Moriarty is the first Sherlock Holmes novel sanctioned by the author's estate since Horowitz's House of Silk. This tale of murder and menace breathes life into Holmes's fascinating world, again proving that once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however im- probable, must be the truth.

Description :  Ποιος σκότωσε τον σερ Μάγκνους Πάι;&#xa0;<br /> Όταν εκείνο το αυγουστιάτικο βράδυ η υπεύθυνη έκδοσης Σούζαν Ράιλαντ άρχιζε να διαβάζει το χειρόγραφο ενός αστυνομικού μυθιστορήματος, με πρωταγωνιστή τον ντετέκτιβ Άττικους Πυντ, δεν μπορούσε να υποψιαστεί ότι θα έπρεπε η ίδια να γράψει το τέλος…&#xa0;<br /> Ο συγγραφέας Άλαν Κόνγουεϊ ήταν το μεγαλύτερο όνομα στον εκδοτικό οίκο και όλοι στηρίζονταν στην επιτυχία του νέου βιβλίου του. Η ένατη υπόθεση του διάσημου ντετέκτιβ αφορούσε τον ύποπτο θάνατο μιας οικονόμου και τον φόνο του μεγαλοκτηματία εργοδότη της σε μια βρετανική επαρχία, το 1955.&#xa0;<br /> Καθώς πλησίαζε στον επίλογο, η Σούζαν διαπίστωσε ότι έλειπαν οι τελευταίες σελίδες. Τι νόημα είχε να διαβάσει ένα αστυνομικό μυθιστόρημα που δεν αποκάλυπτε τη λύση του μυστηρίου; αναρωτήθηκε και πέταξε το χειρόγραφο στην άκρη. Η απάντηση ήρθε από τη φωνή του ραδιοφώνου. Ο συγγραφέας του βιβλίου είχε βρεθεί νεκρός. Το χειρόγραφο σημείωμα αυτοκτονίας βρισκόταν ήδη επάνω στο γραφείο του εκδότη της, Τσαρλς Κλόβερ.&#xa0;<br /> Από εκείνη τη στιγμή η Σούζαν ήξερε ότι από αναγνώστης θα γινόταν ντετέκτιβ…&#xa0;<br /><br /> Κανείς δεν μπορεί να αντισταθεί σ’ ένα καλό αστυνομικό βιβλίο.&#xa0;<br /> Αυτό είναι προειδοποίηση…&#xa0;<br /> Σούζαν Ράιλαντ&#xa0;<br /><br /> Ένα μεγαλοφυές μυθιστόρημα μέσα στο ίδιο το μυθιστόρημα… Η αστυνομική λογοτεχνία του Horowitz «παίζει» με το έγκλημα και ταυτόχρονα μιμείται με εξαιρετική σοβαρότητα τους κλασικούς του είδους.

Description :  작가 앤터니 호로비츠가 아서 코난 도일 재단의 공식 『셜록 홈즈』 작가로 임명된 후, 8년 동안 방대한 자료 조사와 인터뷰, 기나긴 집필 기간을 거쳐 드디어 세상에 나왔다. 그 어떠한 셜록 홈즈 소설보다도 원전 느낌을 그대로 살려내어 언론의 호평과 함께 영국의 베스트셀러를 석권하였다. 그간 존 딕슨 카나 스티븐 킹과 같은 유수의 작가들이 셜록 홈즈가 등장하는 작품을 써서 코난 도일의 공백을 메우려는 시도를 했으나, 코난 도일 재단에 의해 공식 셜록 홈즈 소설의 작가로 선정된 것은 아서 코난 도일 경 사후 81년 만에 앤터니 호로비츠가 처음이다. 아서 코난 도일 재단은 셜록 홈즈의 작품에 정통했던 유작 관리자인 에이드리언 코난 도일이 설립한 이래, 아서 코난 도일 경의 후손들이 직접 운영하고 있는 재단으로 엄격한 기준으로 작가 사후 나온 셜록 홈즈 작품들을 평가하여 재단에서 공식적으로 항의한 작품이 절판되기도 했다.&#xa0;<br /><br /> 『셜록 홈즈 실크 하우스의 비밀』에서도 깊은 관찰과 논리적인 사고, 번뜩이는 통찰력으로 이루어진 추리 끝에 보통 사람이 생각지도 못한 진실을 알아차리는 홈즈의 추리 방식은 그대로지만, 왓슨 박사가 서문에서 언급한 것처럼 범죄 자체의 무게는 너무나 현대적이며 충격적이다. 마지막 두 챕터에서 밝혀지는 진실들은 기괴하면서도 충격적이라서, 반전처럼 느껴질 정도다. 하지만 앤터니 호로비츠는 독자 앞에도 공정하게 추리의 단서들을 펼쳐 놓으며 소설 속에서는 홈즈 만이 알아차렸던 진실을 함께 추리해 볼 것을 권하기에, 여러 펼쳐진 단서들을 조합해서 정답을 찾아내는 재미가 쏠쏠하다.&#xa0;<br /><br /> 영화화까지 진행됐던 대표작 「알렉스 라이더 시리즈」로 전 세계적으로 1200만 부의 판매를 올렸던 앤터니 호로비츠는 『셜록 홈즈 실크 하우스의 비밀』에서도 그 솜씨를 유감없이 발휘해 때로는 논리적 추리, 때로는 액션, 때로는 사회 빈민층을 바라보는 왓슨 박사의 서정적인 시선을 통해, 아서 코난 도일의 작품들에 손색없는 흥미진진하고 스릴 넘치면서도 진한 여운을 남기는 셜록 홈즈 이야기를 탄생시켰다.
