MEMORIES CAN BE DEADLY A brutal murder It's been thirty years since Professor Weider was found dead in his stately home. With little evidence to convict a suspect, the case has never been solved. A buried mystery Now, a partial manuscript has been discovered that reveals three people were at the house that night. All three clearly remember what happened. But someone is lying... Already translated into 37 languages, The Book of Mirrors is the perfect novel for fans of psychological suspense and reading group fiction. 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) 'An elegant, gripping, multi-layered tale about the illusory nature of truth and memory. I loved it.' Tammy Cohen `This Romanian author's debut novel in English is an agile and provocative exploration the tricks memory can play' - Sunday Times 'An impressive first novel, intelligent and well written' - The Times This twisty, brilliantly written tale of a grisly unsolved murder at Princeton asks if we can truly trust our own memories. This nuanced, multi-layered book has a cracking plot to boot and will be devoured by thriller fans - Sun 'Magical in its storytelling, the novel lingers in the memory long after an immensely satisfying denouement.' - Daily Mail `slippery murder mystery' - Irish Independent 'Intricately plotted ... Faulty memories, outright lies, and secrets make it hard to know whom to believe. The action builds to a crafty and believable resolution.' Publisher's Weekly
