DESCRIPTION:
(from PBS's press release, May 2022) In a fresh, beguiling twist on the traditional murder mystery, with a solution that will both astonish and shock viewers, Magpie Murders - adapted from Anthony Horowitz' bestselling novel by the author himself - centers on book editor Susan Ryeland and the unfinished mystery manuscript featuring her unpleasant, prima donna author's longtime detective, Atticus Pünd. When Susan attempts to attain the final chapters, she's plunged into a shocking mystery case of her own - one which will change her life in ways she'd never expected. Artfully weaving between two interlocking time periods, the 1950s and the present day, Magpie Murders, starring Lesley Manville (Phantom Thread, World on Fire) as Susan Ryland and Timothy McMullan (Patrick Melrose, Foyle's War) as fictional DI Atticus Pünd, is sure to delight even the most hard-boiled mystery fan!
