The House Of Mirrors

The House of Mirrors Cover 075_0.75x.jpg

In the summer of 1997, straight-laced, straight-A student Karen met Biba – a bohemian and impossibly glamorous aspiring actress. Months later, two people were dead and another was in prison. Having stood by Rex as he served his sentence, Karen is now married to him with a daughter, Alice.

They’re a normal family as long as they never mention the name Biba, and ignore Alice’s flashes of dark, dangerous fury. Karen has kept what really happened that summer hidden deep inside her. Alice is keeping secrets of her own, but when anonymous notes begin to arrive at her vintage clothing shop in London, it seems the past is about to catch up with them all... 

The House of Mirrors revisits the characters from Erin’s much-loved debut novel, The Poison Tree, though can be read as a standalone. It’s a suspenseful novel from the queen of psychological gothic, again proving that she is a master of ingenious plotting and vivid characterisation.

‘Highly imaginative... An excellent psychological thriller’


‘A gorgeously intricate puzzle of a book’


‘Pacy, brilliantly plotted, and full of complex characters’


The ultimate entertaining thriller’


‘With rich characterisation and intricate yet propulsive plotting, Kelly is at her considerable best’
