Mystery fans, boy have we got a treat for you! Come watch an advance screening of the first episode of the new PBS series Magpie Murders, based on Anthony Horowitz's bestselling novel. We are partnering with the wonderful folks from Northwest Public Broadcasting to bring you this chance to watch the show before it airs on TV! The show, light refreshments, and small giveaways are courtesy of Northwest Public Broadcasting!

Magpie Murders stars Lesley Manville (Mrs. Harries Goes to Paris, The Crown) as Susan Ryeland, the editor of murder mystery author Alan Conway’s novels. Upon turning in his last manuscript, Conway is discovered dead soon after, just as Susan realizes the last chapter from the manuscript is missing. As Susan digs deeper, her investigation begins to eerily parallel that of the manuscript’s fictional sleuth Atticus Pünd, played by Tim McMullan (Patrick Melrose, Foyle’s War). With a host of suspects, secret agendas, and a dark twist, Magpie Murders is a double mystery and the perfect cozy thriller for fall.
