1. The author states that with this book, you're given a box of tricks and that  "The motive for the murder, and therefore by extension, the identity of the killer, can be found on page 1." Were you able to see this? 

2. Did you come to this book with any preconceptions?

3. Horowitz has a talent for creating characters who although are real enough to step out of the page, are also often incredibly unlikable. Were you able to connect with the characters?

4. With this book we're given two mysteries to solve. The suspects in Alan Conway's murder were the same people Alan wrote about in Magpie Murders because they were all people in his real life. How well do you think this worked?

5. How did you feel when you turned the last page?
