Murder through the mirror

Image of item
"Posie Parker, London's premier female Private Detective, is only just back in town when she receives an unexpected visitor. The mysterious magician, Count Olli Onneri, pupil of the legendary American magician Harry Houdini, invites Posie to take part in the opening night of his show at the nearby Holborn Empire. She will be helping him with a 'magic mirror' trick, the like of which has never been seen before. When Posie accepts, she enters a world which is not just about pretty doves being pulled out of hats, but one in which real danger lurks. Before the show, Count Onneri confesses to Posie that he is receiving a string of gruesome death threats delivered to his sumptuous suite at the Ritz. All of the threats arrive inscribed on mirrors. But why? And why is he so scared of a theatre dressing-room he claims he has never been in before? Up on stage, all is not well either. And when Olli Onneri is brutally killed in front of his own audience during his 'magic mirror' trick, Posie vows to investigate, and quickly. As Posie's husband, Chief Inspector Lovelace, starts to pursue suspects across London, and begins to investigate Olli Onneri's American connections, why can't Posie shake off the feeling that the motive for the murder is right in front of them, in the Holborn Empire itself? In a case where nothing is quite as it seems, the long shadows of the past must be stripped away in order to get at the truth. But sometimes, the truth can be devastating." --Back cover.
