About the Book

When the red-haired, beautiful and mysterious Marion Summers dies in horrendous circumstances in the London Library, Brock and Kolla are brought in to investigate, in the new mystery from Australia's master of crime.Barry Maitland, nominated by The Australian as one of the top five crime writers in the world, returns with a vengeance in Dark Mirror. When Marion Summers-red-haired, beautiful and mysterious-collapses and dies in the rarefied surrounds of the London Library, DI Kathy Kolla and DCI David Brock are sent to head the investigation. Kathy finds a reluctant kinship with the feisty Marion, who had, like Kathy, left a difficult home life when young and struck out to London for independence.Marion's research on the intriguing, adulterous circle of artists, wives, lovers and muses around Victorian artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti seems irrelevant until the use of arsenic arises. As Brock and Kolla get closer to the truth, another victim dies an excruciating death by poison in a library, and it looks like a serial poisoner is on the loose.
