Summary

The chilling conclusion to the #1 bestseller The Magpies.

Twelve months ago, Jamie Knight walked straight into Lucy Newton’s trap. Both Jamie and his ex-wife Kirsty barely survived. Now, with the police investigation into Lucy’s disappearance going nowhere, Jamie teams up with a true crime podcaster to track down his nemesis. 

But can Jamie persuade Kirsty to help? Can Kirsty forgive him for his past mistakes? And who, if anyone, will survive the final showdown? Featuring extracts from Lucy’s secret memoir, Last of the Magpies brings the trilogy to a shocking conclusion.

Again not worth a full credit

Although a thrilling conclusion to the fantastic series, as in Murder of Magpies it is too short and not worth the credit and the two novellas “Murder” and “Last” should be bundled for a single credit. Both of these final two instalments feel a bit rushed and I would have rather the author made a full novel for each of the final two instalments and set them as a proper trilogy. However that said Mark Edwards still manages to captivate his audience until the very end. I would still recommend to fans of Magpies but would suggest saving your credit and buy the kindle edition instead.

❤❤❤

Absolutely loved this series! I did so much that I read the first book twice...lol. I really hated to see it end, but it was awesome. The author's story of persistence is also inspiring. Great read and great inspiration Mr. Mark Edwards!

It should have been left the way it was

I do not think that there should have been a comeback. The story was fine the way it was. And it wasn't predictable like the last two "books". Stay with the OG Magpies. You won't be disappointed.

Book 2 and 3 of The Magpies

I enjoyed these last two installments of Mark Edwards’ The Magpies, Book 3 even more so. I loved hearing about that crazy, crazy Lucy! I listened to the original book quite a while ago so it was amazing how much of the story came back to me during the last two readings. I thought it was a good ending. Clearly this is the end of the story, but kind of sorry to see them all go....☹️ The narrators were good, especially the female voice who did an excellent job portraying Lucy.
