Publisher's Summary

Meet the neighbors from hell, in the gripping thriller that reviewers and listeners describe as "fast-paced", "chilling", and "impossible to put down".
When Jamie and Kirsty move into their first home together, they are full of optimism. The future, in which they plan to get married and start a family, is bright. The other residents of their building seem friendly, too, including the Newtons, a married couple who welcome them to the building with open arms.
But then strange things start to happen. Dead rats are left on their doorstep. They hear disturbing noises, and much worse, in the night. After Jamie’s best friend is injured in a horrific accident, Jamie and Kirsty find themselves targeted by a campaign of terror.
As they are driven to the edge of despair, Jamie vows to fight back - but he has no idea what he is really up against....
The Magpies is a gripping psychological thriller in which the monsters are not vampires or demons but the people who live next door. It is a nightmare that could happen to anyone.

I Thought This Book Would Never End! Hated it!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This story could have been told in 10 chapters at the most but it dragged on for 30 endless chapters that were boring and entirely too detailed. I had guessed the end by the first few chapters. The narrator was quite good. He sounded like Jude Law but the story just got on my nerves. Ugh. Save your money!

Extremely slow and disappointed

Struggled to finish this book as I kept expecting more to happen or there to be some black magic or mischief involved. The ending felt rushed and not complete with holes in the storyline. I wouldn't recommend.
