I am here with the review of an amazing mystery novel by Lex H Jones. He is a growing author who specializes in horror, thriller, and mystery genres. I am sharing my review of his latest book- THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MIRROR. His other works include his first published novel ‘Nick and Abe’ and a collection of short horror stories. His current work in progress is the ‘Harkins’ book series, the first part of it being ‘The Final Casebook of Mortimer Grimm’ which was out for release in late 2019. Also, he is working on a trilogy of children fiction books. The author has also written articles for horror websites – The Gingernuts Of Horror and The Horrifically Horrifying Horror Blog. When not writing, Lex proofreads and edits the works of other authors.

The book, ‘The Other Side of the Mirror’, is a crime based novel which is centered around the professional and personal life of an honest, rugged, witty, and a not-so-social detective- Carl Duggan. The book starts with the scene where detective Duggan finds the corpse of a young girl in her teens, floating in the Styx- the river which separates the two sides of the City. Being the first one to find the dead girl in the river, and a detective by profession, the case becomes his responsibility. The city is in much chaos and disorder and a dead body floating in the river doesn’t come as a surprise to the detective or any other person living in the city. Duggan solves the case with much ease only to experience strange feelings and emotions.

To unwind more hidden truths, with the help of his colleagues and Charles- a shooter during the night and His Holiness of the city during the day, Duggan dives back into his past and succumbs to it. His efforts and intelligence solve the dirty cases of the city but reveal something unexpected about him too.

The book is full of twists and turns; mysteries being solved only to start a new one. Lex H Jones has done a fabulous job in keeping the mysteries, cases, and the characters connected till the end. The way all the mysteries are solved, and the truths are unfolded to the reader, is a work worth a pat on the back. I found the end of the book most captivating and full of eagerness; explaining every tiny detail and connecting all the loopholes in a crystal clear manner.

On a scale of 1-10, I would give ‘The Other Side of the Mirror’ the score of a perfect 10 for the characters, intensity, description, and juggles of the crime story. Written by Lex H Jones, this book is highly recommended for the ones who are looking for a captivating read.
