Mirror Dead by Magda McQueen
Hardcover – Tartarus Press – 2017 – 254 pages
Mirror Dead is a thoroughly contemporary novel which demonstrates the rude health of the ghost story at the beginning of the twenty-first century.
When Simon falls for fairytale-obsessed Rose, he sees a chance to move on from his girlfriend’s death the year before. But can he trust Gray, the cross-dressing ghost of his twin brother, who shares his body and sees Rose as lunch? They set out to infiltrate her life, but soon find that they have bitten off more than either of them can chew.
Rose has thorns. Her psycho ex is one of them. And her unstable sister has a secret agenda with an Angel that is every bit as dangerous as Gray’s. . . .
