Synopsis

Read an exclusive blog by the author on crime, punishment and memory





This is 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? Princeton, 1987: renowned psychologist Professor Joseph Weider is brutally murdered. New York, twenty-five years later: literary agent Peter Katz receives a manuscript. Or is it a confession? Today: unearth the secrets of The Book of Mirrors and discover why your memory is the most dangerous weapon of all. 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). "A global publishing phenomenon." (The Guardian). "The current toast of literary Britain." (Telegraph). "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).

Inspired by false memories from his childhood and written in the author's second language, remarkably The Book of Mirrors nearly wasn't published at all. Having been rejected in the US, E. O. Chirovici took the novel to a small UK publisher who advised him to try just one more time to get it to a wider readership. He did, and The Book of Mirrors was immediately signed by a literary agent, sparking a UK auction and world-wide rights sales. E. O. Chirovici now lives in Brussels with his wife. He has had a prestigious and varied career in the Romanian media and has also published novels and short stories in his native language. The Book of Mirrors is his first novel in English and is being published in January.
