Mirror Image by Michele Pariza Wacek


RATING: ★★★★☆

Which could be worse, knowing that your dead sister had come back to life and is now a serial killer or that someone else is the killer … and that person is you?

Six months after Linda’s sister Elizabeth killed herself, Linda has finally gotten her life back to some semblance of normalcy. Until a killer appears who is stalking men … a killer who resembles Elizabeth … a killer who seems somehow familiar to Linda.

And, to make matters worse, Steve, her old high school crush and now a detective, is assigned to this case. He’s asking Linda all sorts of questions, questions Linda couldn’t possible have an answer to.

There’s no reason for him to be investigating Linda. She couldn’t possibly have anything to do with this.

Could she?

I was sent a copy of Mirror Image in exchange for an honest review. I am a massive fan of psychological thrillers and the description immediately grabbed my attention.

The main focus of the story is Linda, a young woman who is struggling to cope following the suicide of her younger sister, Elizabeth. She is depressed, overworked and suffering from insomnia. Even as her friends express worry about her diminishing frame and lack of social life, Linda becomes even more withdrawn.

Things are made worse when a string of murders seem to somehow be connected to her dead sister. Linda starts to experience strange occurrences that she has no ability to explain, she loses time and senses a presence near her and in her apartment. All the while, the police department are questioning her more fiercely, demanding to know if she knows anything more about her sister’s death.

The story was very well written with the perfect amount of suspense to make you keep reading and trying to guess what was going to happen. The author developed the characters very skilfully, her descriptions of Elizabeth certainly made me feel a bit uneasy. I would definitely recommend Mirror Image to any fan of psychological thrillers, especially if you want something to keep you guessing.
