文學經紀人Peter Katz收到書名為《The Book of Mirrors》的部分書稿,馬上對其原創性與內容深感著迷:

作者Richard Flynn在這本回憶錄中,記錄他多年前在大學就讀英文系時,與心理系學生Laura的戀情,以及與知名教授Joseph Wieder的互動;他們兩人參與一項與記憶相關的研究,卻對詳細內容守口如瓶。然後,在1987年聖誕節前夕,Wieder在家中遭到殘忍謀殺,兇手卻始終沒有落網,從此成為懸案……

Katz懷疑,在命案發生的二十五年後,作者不是在進行犯罪自白,就是終將揭開兇手的真面目。弔詭的是,在兇手即將揭曉之際,故事突然結束,作者則剛過世不久,而失落的書稿到處都找不到!一心想知道《The Book of Mirrors》最終結局的Katz,請來記者好友調查多年前的懸案,意圖重建實際發生的犯罪事件,讓真相水落石出!然而,一連訪問數名命案關係人,卻發現每個人的口供都無法吻合,最後連書稿內容的真實性也備受挑戰……記憶究竟是拼湊真相的利器,抑或是掩蓋暴行的共犯?

Sold in 38 territories around the world, THE BOOK OF MIRRORS is a truly global phenomenon.

'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

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.
