The ritual was always the same. First, she would visit the abandoned mirror maze from her broken childhood. Then, she would drive into the city, pick up a stranger, drug, rob and humiliate him. Now one of her "marks" has been found murdered. And Detective Frank Janek must enter the labyrinth of a woman's rage--to find the reflection of a killer's wrath.

Thoroughly enjoyed it - the first Mayer I've read, and I'll be looking out for more. It entertained me, but I also put it down thinking that I learned a few things from the book - that's important to me and adds to the enjoyment. It did get off to a slow start, but then recovered and hooked me.

There's quite a lot of psychology in there, and an MO I had't seen before. Characters are well drawn, and the pace was measured and fats enough to keep me awake late. There were only a couple of things the

100 pagina's minder was voor dit boek ook voldoende geweest: het boek kent veel stukken met weinig ontwikkeling. Daarnaast laat de vertaling nogal wat steken vallen. De hoofdlijnen in het verhaal zijn best goed.

This is the first of Bayer's books that I have read and I thought it was pretty good. The story was intricate and well tied together at the end. I will try to find more of his books.

It is an interesting book. Unfortunately, the most intrigue involves Gelsey, and her life. The other cases have some interest at the beginning, but their value seems to diminish as time goes on. The mirror maze itself is fantastic, and something I had never read before. The novel goes to a different place with mirrors, and how they can be used. Creative.

Police Mystery) I'm so sorry, but I can no longer tell if William Bayer is good or not. He's just got me snookered. If he writes it, I'll read it. Frank Janek, NY homicide detective, has two crimes this time. One mirrors the other and both are fascinating. Do yourself a favor and find a William Bayer mystery.

This book inspired me to learn how to write backwards, and I can do it quite fluidly now.
