Here's a review of Mirror Image just published in Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, the largest-circulation mystery magazine in the world. Since the first fiction I ever published appeared in that magazine (in 1978!), it's a real thrill to have my first mystery novel reviewed there.
"A screenwriter turned psychotherapist draws on both areas of expertise in the first novel about Pittsburgh police consultant Dr. Daniel Rinaldi, one of whose crime-victim patients is murdered while dressed in imitation of his psychologist. The short-chapter, multi-reversal thriller offers much better prose, dialogue and characterization than many bestsellers' products and concludes with well-clued and deftly-executed finishing twists."
