"An insanely plotted book...riveting."—The New York Times Book Review
Identical twins. One wants what the other has. How far will she go to get it?
Here's what Iris knows about her identical twin sister, Summer:
Everything that belongs to Summer is perfect, from her magnificent yacht to her gorgeous husband.
Summer's life will always be better than Iris's.
Nobody -- absolutely nobody -- can tell the twins apart. Even with $100 million at stake.
Against a backdrop of sparkling tropical islands, ocean storms, and outrageous wealth, The Girl in the Mirror explores the terrible consequences of greed, deadly lies, and out-of-control jealousy.
"Ferociously entertaining. A novel like a triathlon: part evil-twin thriller, part howdunit (or did-she-do-it?), part juicy family drama. Drop Knives Out and Double Indemnity into the blender, shake some Dead Calm over the froth, power it on, and you’ve got a cocktail like The Girl in the Mirror—fresh, flavorful, and utterly intoxicating." —AJ Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window
