Praise for The Book of Mirrors: "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). "The Book of Mirrors is exactly what I look for in a thriller: a great concept, brilliantly executed, smarter than it seems and knotty enough to keep you guessing.
Like the best stories about memory, it leaves the reader wondering what's true and what isn't." (James Smythe).

A smart, sophisticated murder puzzle sure to please the more literary-minded aficionados of the form". (Kirkus). "This is a meta-novel which possesses ripping momentum and brims with ambiguity.
A high-grade mystery that's ripe for investigation." (Crime Scene Magazine).
