Review of The Copycat Murders by William Meikle

The Copycat Murders
by William Meikle [Kindle Edition]

The official blurb:

"The murders have the police baffled. The D.I. in charge has a suspect, but they have a cast iron alibi and couldn't be in two places at once.

By the time they realize that the perp is using mirrors as gateways to his victims it's too late. The D.I is framed and set up for a murder. He has to go on the run.

The only way to clear his name is to trap the killer on his own territory.

That means taking a trip to the other side. Into the mirrrorland."


I received a free copy of this short story ebook from Amazon whilst it was on offer. It is, today, 77p and I think well worth it. My review is honest and is in no way influenced by the fact that I got this for free.

This book has an interesting and unique concept which would work well as an episode in a TV series such as the X Files or something similar. It was well written, had interesting and likeable characters and a good "smarmy" bad guy that you are hoping will get his comeuppance. It was well paced and kept my attention throughout. I felt the ending was good but I would have liked to have found out what happened next.

Despite this being a short story, I really enjoyed it and would seriously consider reading more from this author.
