About the Author:

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.

Review:

"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?" from the publisher's description "Intelligent and sophisticated - a crime story told the way Picasso painted pictures. Highly recommended." Lee Child "Magical in its storytelling, the novel lingers in the memory long after an immensely satisfying denouement" Daily Mail "entirely compelling" Guardian "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) "An elegant, gripping, multi-layered tale about the illusory nature of truth and memory. I loved it." Tammy Cohen "A literary thriller - complex, gripping and a beautiful read." Jenni Murray "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
