Synopsis

It is said that a mirror can trap a person's soul...

Martin Williams is a broke, two-bit screenwriter living in Hollywood, but when he finds the very mirror that once hung in the house of a murdered 1930s child star, he happily spends all he has on it. He has long obsessed over the tragic story of Boofuls, a beautiful and successful actor who was slaughtered and dismembered by his grandmother.

However, he soon discovers that this dream buy is in fact a living nightmare; the mirror was not only in Boofuls house, but witness to the death of this blond-haired and angelic child, which in turn has created a horrific and devastating portal to a hellish parallel universe. So when Martin’s landlord loses his grandson it is soon apparent that the mirror is responsible.

But if a little boy has gone into the mirror, what on earth is going to come out?

Together with Family Portrait and The Pariah, Mirror is being reissued as part of Hammer's ongoing publishing programme – bringing horror back to the forefront of the market.

"Like all good horror stories, this moves from the familiar and the credible to the fanciful and disturbing... the drama is tense, the writing superb." Sunday Times

"Violent and relentlessly-paced. Mirror is major Masterton, which is to say that it's a fat and juicy read!" Mystery Scene

I ordered this one through Amazon UK, which has a reasonable shipping policy to the US. I liked it, but the Pariah was much better.
