The Just Desserts mystery fiction discussion group met online using Zoom meeting software, on March 25th, 2021, due to the libraries ongoing pandemic safety precautions. Attendees discussed Magpie Murders, first in a new series by British author Anthony Horowitz, the creator of Midsomer Murders, Foyle’s War, and the Alex Rider YA series of novels. If you read this book, and would like to contribute your comments about it, please do so as a reply comment to this blog post, below.

So…What did you think of Anthony Horowitz’ Magpie Murders?
The following handout was prepared for the members of Just Desserts: The Fiction of Anthony Horowitz.
We hope to return to public meetings, including Just Desserts, at some point in the current Book Group season. Watch the libraries’ website and social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) for the latest updates! In the meantime, we hope Just Desserters will join us on Zoom on April 29th, for a discussion of the three different mystery series from author Elly Griffiths.
