The Mirror Man

We rated this book:


Jenny is a teenager venturing home when she is the victim of an assault and abduction. The disappearance and search for Jenny is all over the airwaves, her whereabouts subject to rampant speculation. Meanwhile, Pamela is on holiday with her husband Martin and her daughter Alice. Pamela’s life is upended when an accident takes the life of Alice and leaves Martin with lingering mental disabilities.

Flashing forward to five years later and both of these unrelated tragedies will intertwine. Pamela is trying to rebuild her life and adopt a rebellious teenager. She attempts to bring Martin home in a bid to show a stable home. However, Martin bears witness to a shocking murder, which not only threatens Pamela’s plans, but also their very lives. Detective Joona, a brilliant but damaged policeman, wants to break through Martin’s cloudy mindset and uncover a psychopathic killer.

The Mirror Man is the latest spine-tingling thriller from Lars Kepler (Lazarus, The Rabbit Hunter). This is not a book for the faint-hearted, as the shocks will leap out at the reader when they are least prepared. The book never falters in keeping the reader on their toes and guessing from start to finish.
