Sold in 38 territories around the world, THE BOOK OF MIRRORS is a truly global phenomenon. "Intelligent and sophisticated - a crime story told the way Picasso painted pictures.
Highly recommended." (Lee Child). "I loved this twisty mind game! The Book Of Mirrors starts with a secret manuscript about a cold-case murder and then uses a host of characters and perspectives to make you look in every direction but at the truth.
Who is lying? Is anyone's recall perfect? This isn't just a very clever thriller - it leaves us wondering how much we subconsciously manipulate our own memories to protect ourselves." (Julia Heaberlin (bestselling author of Black Eyed Susans)). "A literary thriller - complex, gripping and a beautiful read." (Jenni Murray). "An elegant, gripping, multi-layered tale about the illusory nature of truth and memory.
I loved it." (Tammy Cohen). When big-shot literary agent Peter Katz receives an unfinished manuscript entitled The Book of Mirrors, he is intrigued.
The author, Richard Flynn is writing a memoir about his time at Princeton in the late 80s, documenting his relationship with the famous Professor Joseph Wieder. One night in 1987, Wieder was brutally murdered in his home and the case was never solved.
Peter Katz is hell-bent on getting to the bottom of what happened that night twenty-five years ago and is convinced the full manuscript will reveal who committed the violent crime.
But other people's recollections are dangerous weapons to play with, and this might be one memory that is best kept buried.
