A con artist and seductress, Meredith Spooner lived fast - and died young. Now it seems Meredith's last scam - embezzling more than a million dollars from a college endowment fund - is coming back to haunt Leonora Hutton.

Publisher's Summary

A con artist and seductress, Meredith Spooner lived fast - and died young. Now it seems Meredith's last scam - embezzling more than a million dollars from a college endowment fund - is coming back to haunt Leonora Hutton. An e-mail just arrived in which Meredith - in fear for her life - explains that the money is waiting for Leonora in an offshore account...and a safe-deposit key is on the way.

Leonora wants nothing to do with the tainted money. She's already been accused of being in on the theft by Thomas Walker - who, it seems, was a victim of Meredith's knack for both scams and seductions. Eager to prove him wrong, Leonora sets out to collect the cash and hand it over.

But she discovers two other items in the safe-deposit box. One is a book about Mirror House - a mansion filled with antique mirrors, where Meredith engineered her final deception. The other is a set of newspaper stories about a 30-year-old murder that occurred there - unsolved to this day.

Now Leonora has an offer for Thomas Walker. She'll hand over the money - if he helps her figure out what's happening. Meredith had described Walker as "a man you can trust." But in a funhouse-mirror world of illusion and distortion, Leonora may be out of her league.

What the Critics Say

"The politics of academe, eerie antique mirrors, secret passages, and psychic contact contribute a haunting quality to Krentz's enticing blend of suspense and top-notch romance." (Booklist)

    "Wonderful narrators"

    Very, very nice narration! This is one of the best examples I've heard of how to do alternating male/female readers exactly right. In fact I'll be looking for anything else recorded by Aasne Vigesaa and James Daniels. I can definitely say I got more out of listening to this book than I did reading it.

    "Smoke is Mirrors"

    This was a good story and well written, as most of Jayne Ann Krentz's stories are. The narrators were good individually but put together they sound like they are reading a script. I liked the story so the narrators were not a showstopper.
