あらすじ・解説

An AudioFile Earphones Award-winning production.

New York Times best-selling author Donna Andrews returns with another Meg Langslow mystery crafted "firmly in the grand tradition of Agatha Christie's Christmas books" (Toronto Globe and Mail).

The 28th audiobook and the seventh Christmas mystery in the Meg Langslow series, The Gift of the Magpie is yet another wonderfully merry and funny book from New York Times best-selling author Donna Andrews.

Meg’s running Caerphilly’s Helping Hands for the Holidays project, in which neighbors help each other with things they can’t do and can’t afford to have done. Her hopes for a relatively peaceful (if busy) Christmas vanish when someone murders Harvey the Hoarder, whose house the Helping Hands were decluttering. Was there any truth to the rumor that he had something valuable hidden beneath all his junk? Was one of his friends, neighbors, or relatives greedy enough to murder him for the rumored treasure? And what about the magpie that has been bringing her family bits of tinsel and costume jewelry - does the bird’s latest gift hold a clue to solving the crime?

Full of intrigue, this Christmas mystery will take listeners home to Caerphilly, where the suspense falls as thick as the snow.

Wonderful latest in a great series

I just finished the Meg Langslow series. If you haven’t tried this series you are missing a great read/listen. Bernadette Dunne is one of my favorite narrators for audio books and she does this one total justice.

Loved the hoarding/ treasure hunt angle. Great twist- in a couple of places! One of my favorites in this series.

An okay entry in this series

This Book is about average in the series. I like Christmas ones the least, and this one was super Christmasy. I expect that many readers would love that aspect. I read these every year, and I know what to expect, but I enjoy catching up with the characters.

The reader is good, but many of her characters sound the same, and I had trouble distinguishing which character was speaking.

A great mystery

I like mysteries and Who done its much more than thrillers or police psychodramas and this is a classic mystery with multiple little themes happening around the main plot line. this plot is great for anyone who is interested in mysteries

Good works, fun, and greed

good-works, family-dynamics, friendship, situational-humor, verbal-humor, law-enforcement, cozy-mystery, murder-investigation, hoarding, animal-welfare

Warning! I liked it so much that I pre-ordered an audio copy!
Come for the laughs and puns, stay for a good mystery, and perhaps to learn some things! Meg Langlow is a craft blacksmith/organizational wizard with a very large, impressive, and quirky family and she is the protagonist. Michael Waterston is her drama professor/former star of a cult sci-fi TV series husband. Dr. Langslow is her father/mystery geek/local Medical Examiner. And a cast of most of the town of Caerphilly, Virginia. It's the Christmas season and in the Good Works department is a community effort to help anyone with a need that can be filled with the help of volunteers, whether hauling manure, making a wheelchair ramp, or helping a man who is overcome by clutter. That last one is the man who needs Meg's persuasion to accept help and find creative answers to the fears he has. Add in some truly awful neighbors and some even worse cousins, and you can guess why Meg finds him nearly dead of blunt force trauma in his garage. Let the sleuthing begin!
I requested and received a free ebook copy from St. Martin's Press/Minotaur Books via NetGalley. Thank you!
Bernadette Dunne is the perfect person to narrate this family!
