People Lie | The Book of Mirrors | A Review

Another Sunday, another review.

Hi guys! Can you believe we are through with our first week of May? I sure can’t.

I was sent a book proof of this book by the team at Century publishers, part of Penguin Random House, thank you guys!


One Man’s Truth Is Another Man’s Lie.

When big-shot literary agent Peter Katz receives an unfinished manuscript entitled The Book of Mirrors, he is intrigued.

The author, Richard Flynn is writing a memoir about his time at Princeton in the late 80s, documenting his relationship with the famous Professor Joseph Wieder. One night in 1987, Wieder was brutally murdered in his home and the case was never solved.

Peter Katz is hell-bent on getting to the bottom of what happened that night twenty-five years ago and is convinced the full manuscript will reveal who committed the violent crime. But other people’s recollections are dangerous weapons to play with, and this might be one memory that is best kept buried.

To begin with, I was super confused about the book, I thought it was the actual publisher writing about it and thought it was real, that was until I got to the second and third part of the book; the investigator and the retired detective.

It was set out really interesting. I loved the aspect of the 3 separate stories, starting where the last one left off, add more information and depth to the story.

The first part of the book had me hooked, it obviously, ended on a cliff hanger, actually both part one and part two of this book ends on a cliff hanger which leads you on to the next section of the book, it leaves you hooked, eager to read more.

The books a bit of a maze, as you’re given one part of the story and then a different part, each with different point of views and with differences in context. It’s all very confusing.

However, I really did love this book and would recommend it to lovers of crime and mystery fiction.

As always, let me know in the comments below if you’ve read this book and what you thought of it, and if not, give it a read!
