Description

Sometimes Marisa gets the fanciful notion that Kate has visited the house before. She makes herself at home without any self-consciousness. She puts her toothbrush right there in the master bathroom, on the shelf next to theirs.

In Jake, Marisa has found everything she's ever wanted. Then their new lodger Kate arrives. But something about Kate isn't right. Is it the way she looks at Marisa's boyfriend? Sits too close on the sofa? Constantly asks about the baby they are trying for? Or is it all just in Marisa's head?

After all, that's what her Jake keeps telling her. And she trusts him - doesn't she?

But Marisa knows something is wrong. That the woman sleeping in their house will stop at nothing to get what she wants. Marisa just doesn't know why.

How far will she go to find the answer - and how much is she willing to lose?

'A dark, sleek, ever-tightening spiral ... Completely, terrifyingly BRILLIANT'
- Marian Keyes

'Elizabeth Day has written that rare book I always go hunting for, something that will keep me breathless with suspense but also buoyant with good energy. 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

'Magpie is a clever, suspenseful read with a brilliant central pivot and a keen eye for relationships, including the toxic ones. A compelling, twisting read'
- Matt Haig, author of The Midnight Library and The Comfort Book

'Superbly taut and well-written, noirish with a big and beating heart'
- Jessie Burton, author of The Miniaturist and The Confession

'An absorbing exploration of infertility and mental illness combined with the pace and plot of a heart-racing thriller ... I literally couldn't put this down. Sublime'
- Sara Collins, author of The Confessions of Frannie Langotn
