The Mirror Dance, Paperback / softback Book

The Mirror Dance Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


'The ever-witty McPherson has outdone herself' Scottish Field'All the wit and clever plotting fans of Christie could want' My Weekly Special*Winner of Left Coast Crime's Lefty Award for Best Historical Mystery Novel*Something sinister is afoot in the streets of Dundee, when a puppeteer is found murdered behind his striped Punch and Judy stand, as children sit cross-legged drinking ginger beer.

At once, Dandy Gilver's seemingly-innocuous investigation into plagiarism takes a darker turn.

The gruesome death seems to be inextricably bound to the gloomy offices of Doig's Publishers, its secrets hidden in the real stories behind their girls' magazines The Rosie Cheek and The Freckle. On meeting a mysterious professor from St Andrews, Dandy and her faithful colleague Alex Osbourne are flung into the worlds of academia, the theatre and publishing.

Nothing is quite as it seems, and behind the cheerful facades of puppets and comic books, is a troubled history has begun to repeat itself.
