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.

I saw this book in the book store here in the Netherlands and kept looking at it due to the intriguing cover and description. Books about books are always so interesting. I was really happy that I got approved on Netgalley to read the book.
This story is a great puzzle and it is very exciting. The book Peter Katz is receiving is well written and captures his interest immediately. The writing style and the story grab the readers attention immediately.
The story is told by three people and the most of Peter Katz his part is the book and thus Richard Flynn his story he is still a very important part in the story. In trying to get the rest of the book Peter involves a journalist, John Keller. He picks up the narrative and his chapters are really interesting. He does a lot of the investigation and his chapters are the great puzzle. Soon he gets to involved and it breaks him up. He decides to stop investigating and carries over the papers to Roy Freeman. Roy was one of the police officers involved in the original investigation. Back in the time he had some trouble and he cannot escape the feeling he did not see everything. He is happy he gets a new chance to investigate the story and eventually he is able to tie up most of the loose ends.
There was not much difference between the voices of the different man which was a bit disturbing during the story especially when there was communication between the different characters. I would have loved a few chapters from Lauren Baines her point of view. This book is well written and entertaining.

I typed a long comment and it was hanging and I wasn't sure if it went through or not. I mentioned that I enjoyed your review & that I liked the book cover. I also told you that I noticed a Dutch word in the review (en = and?)
