Description

ONE MAN'S TRUTH IS ANOTHER MAN'S LIE.

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.

Review quote

"THE ONE BOOK YOU WON'T FORGET IN 2017

A gripping psychological thriller full of hidden fragments and dark reflections.

How would you piece together a murder?

Do you trust other people's memories?
Do you trust your own?
Should you?" * from the publisher's description * "Intelligent and sophisticated - a crime story told the way Picasso painted pictures. Highly recommended." * Lee Child * "Magical in its storytelling, the novel lingers in the memory long after an immensely satisfying denouement" * Daily Mail * "entirely compelling" * Guardian * "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) *
