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) '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 `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 `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 'This is a fine multi-layered, intelligent crime story that will keep you guessing about more than just the perpetrator of the crime. The author has created characters with depth and feeling. They take hold of you and immerse you in the story, leaving you reluctant to let it go until the final pages have been read. A certain winner.' Reading Writes `I read The Book of Mirrors in a single sitting. It's a brilliant novel that is utterly compelling' Jo's Book Blog `Beautifully written, with a very clever structure' Fully Booked `This is as much a whydunit as a whodunit and the reader is drawn deeper into a web of ruthless ambition, manipulation and revenge.' The Bookbag 'Chirovici draws his characters well and tantalizes the reader with judiciously timed revelations. 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 `Intrigue, confusion, and considerable fact distortion reign supreme in the extreme trial by memory presented by The Book of Mirrors' - Little Bookness Lane `Already shrouded in hype and hysteria, The Book of Mirrors is going to be the one to watch in 2017' - BookWormMummy 'This book is going to be a 2017 smash (but don't cut yourself on the glass) hit!' - Keeper of Pages `The Book of Mirrors is a fascinating read that shatters the bubble each character is living in. Intelligently written, the novel offers a good insight into the depth of our memories, and the stories that shape our lives' - Martha In a Few Words blog
