A novel by

 
 
“Great concept and brilliantly executed.”—John Marrs, international bestselling author of The One

Meet Jeremiah Adams. There are two of him.

The offer is too tempting: be part of a scientific breakthrough, step out of his life for a year, and be paid hugely for it. When ViMed Pharmaceutical asks Jeremiah to be part of an illegal cloning experiment, he sees it as a break from an existence he feels disconnected from.

No one will know he’s been replaced—not the son who ignores him, not his increasingly distant wife—since a revolutionary drug called Meld can transfer his consciousness and memories to his copy.

From a luxurious apartment, he watches the clone navigate his day-to-day life. But soon Jeremiah discovers that examining himself from an outsider’s perspective isn’t what he thought it would be, and he watches in horror as “his” life spirals out of control.

ViMed needs the experiment to succeed—they won’t call it off, and are prepared to remove any obstacle. With his family in danger, Jeremiah needs to finally find the courage to face himself head-on.

A vivid and original technothriller that questions the nature of self and races to a stunning finish.

“Thrilling…thought-provoking.”—Publishers Weekly

Praise for this book

"Part Twilight Zone episode and part medical thriller, The Mirror Man seamlessly weaves together clones and family for a fascinating story about the lies we tell ourselves--and what we might do with second chances. Tense, poignant, and frequently funny, Gilmartin's debut waxes lyrical on the human condition while racing to an unforgettable finish." - Mike Chen

"An incredible debut, fascinating in concept with characters that grip you from the get-go. A timely and touching novel." - Heather Graham

"A remarkable debut...Great concept and brilliantly executed." - John Marrs

"A story that is both profound and artfully contained. Claustrophobic and disturbingly intimate. Simply brilliant." - Sylvain Neuvel

"Very original and beautifully executed...A first-rate science-based thriller...and a subtle and ultimately gripping examination of what it means to be human, and of what stuff the human soul is made...A complex, intelligent and ultimately illuminating look at life, love and destiny." - Carsten Stroud
