9780955493966: Mirror Mirror: When evil and beauty collide

Voted the world’s most beautiful woman, twenty-three-year-old Mira Roskova is admired, envied and desired. With a world-famous footballer for a boyfriend, plus top modelling and endorsement deals, Mira’s meteoric rise to fame comes with what her millions of Facebook and Instagram followers imagine to be a perfect life.

But celebrity extracts its pound of flesh. Threatened and harassed online, stalked by besotted fans, beaten up by a man who claims to love her, Mira is assailed on all sides. Home isn’t safe, friends can’t be trusted, freedoms melt away. Where does the image end and the real person begin?

As the threats multiply, the biggest danger is overlooked. In Broadmoor, Britain’s most notorious psychiatric hospital, one man has long been obsessed with this most perfect beauty. His crimes are so awful that a judge ruled they must never been revealed to the public. But his plans to possess Mira are well advanced, and he has the charm and the cunning to make them work.

The most chilling thriller of the year

About the Author:

Nick Louth is a best-selling thriller writer, award-winning financial journalist and an investment commentator. A 1979 graduate of the London School of Economics, he went on to become a Reuters foreign correspondent in 1987. It was an experience at a medical conference in Amsterdam in 1992, while working for Reuters, that gave him the inspiration for Bite, which was published in 2007 and went on to become the UK No1 Kindle best-seller for several weeks in 2014. It has sold a third of a million copies, and been translated into six languages. Freelance since 1998, he has been a regular contributor to the Financial Times, Investors Chronicle and Money Observer, and has published seven other books. Nick Louth is married and lives in Lincolnshire. Heartbreaker was published in June 2014 and received critical acclaim from Amazon readers, with a 4.6 out of 5 stars on over 100 reviews. A third thriller, Mirror Mirror, is to be published in June 2016. 'To the frustration of my publishers, I've wandered between many sub-genres of the thriller world - medical, terrorism, psychological – and even a hint of zombie! I’ve also packed in issues that are normally covered in women’s fiction in commercial novels that have the pace deemed necessary to lure male readers. This is deliberate. I spent years as a journalist, and remain wedded to the idea that action and page-turning power should not deduct from the ‘intelligence’ of a book, or lead it away from the grey areas of contemporary issues to conclusions set in black and white.’ ‘In Bite, this was the way that (at the time of writing in the late 1990s) diseases that killed the most people were those that got the least investment by drug companies - because the customers were poor.' 'In Heartbreaker, part of which is set in a refugee camp in Lebanon, I wanted to show the dilemmas facing Western journalists who routinely cover terrible events, and the price that are paid by the drivers, translators and fixers who work for them. Radicalisation, particularly how it works on women, is a key part of the book and has since publication in 2014 become an even more topical issue since the rises of ISIS in Syria.’ ‘With Mirror Mirror, I have dived into the world of women’s identity and self-image in the age of celebrity and branding. Why a beautiful woman, beaten up by her famous boyfriend, is persuaded not to report it to the police, to protect the value of a forthcoming branding deal. I hope readers will look at the questions posed in this book, and my others, and when the last page is turned have something to take away with them.’

Review:

“This psychological thriller, the latest offering from bestselling author Nick Louth, sparkles with tension. The plot kept me turning the pages from my first encounter with the mysterious prisoner in Broadmoor, to its last twist in windswept Lancashire.

"When Virgil is employed to protect Mira, he finds her violent boyfriend is just one of the men determined to shatter her image of perfect poise and beauty. Someone far more sinister is watching Mira, and waiting. In order to protect her, Virgil has to enter her world, the celebrity branding business, which he finds more confusing than the war he survived. But Mira isn’t helping herself, keeping secrets that are putting her life, and Virgil’s, at risk.

"As with his previous thrillers, Mirror, Mirror is painstakingly researched. Louth moves effortlessly between a bewildering range of settings and shows himself to be equally at ease taking his characters through Special Hospitals, the House of Lords, the fast-paced media world, or international espionage.”
Kate Mitchell, author of The House Fell On Her Head
