Magpie Murders Season 2 Story
The story of the 2nd season of the series would probably be the continuation of the 1st season and would still revolve around the same main leads while just slightly shifting focus and showing us different perspectives of the same story.
The story of the first season that was premiered on the 10th of February 2022, began with Susan Ryeland the editor of the mystery author Alan Conway receiving the manuscript for Alan’s latest best-selling crime-mystery genre novel series. The manuscript was supposed to be the final novel of the said series. But when she reads the manuscript, she realizes it was incomplete as the last chapter where the identity of the murderer was revealed is missing and she is shortly struck with the fact that the mystery author has committed suicide which she later finds out to be false.
She gets curious and sets out to find the missing chapter and midway through the investigation Susan also realizes that every single story Alan has written in his mystery novel was based or inspired by some real incident and that all these incidents and his death could be connected. She eventually ends up finding out that the missing chapter was hidden by her boss Charles Clover in his drawer and used Alan’s manuscript as his suicide note.
Following this reveal, Susan is exposed to Charles and is threatened by the fact that she is planning to go to the police. So he ends up trying to kill her and Susan is seen saving herself from death at the hands of her crazy boss who killed a human and his friend just to increase the success and profit of their publishing house. He also tries to light the final chapter of the manuscript on fire.
