Twin brothers, two years old, are snatched out of their Chicago home at noon on their birthday, never to be seen again. The kidnappers never make contact. The crime haunts the city, devastating those left behind.


As the anniversary of the abduction approaches, freelance journalist Jase Deering begins to investigate a case gone cold for the police. What he finds is a paranoid former nanny who had the word "mirrorrorrim" carved into her flesh that fateful day and a trail that leads to a fabled figure, Aubrey Hart Morick. Morick, dead for many years, was an iconic practitioner of the black arts whose legacies are a scandalous reputation and a son named Graham. Increasingly convinced that Graham Morick is more than the simple, innocent man he claims to be, Jase Deering finds the line between natural and supernatural beginning to blur. His determined search for the truth may cost him, and everyone he holds dear, more than he can bear.

I will start my story in a place I shouldn't. My beginning won't involve the woman I once loved, my writing partner, Robyn Matchfrost. No, and the Boyle children, those two perfect little two-year-olds...

Praise for The Mirror's Edge

“Unforgetable, spellbinding, and darkly suspenseful. Sidor must have sold his soul to the devil to write this well.” —Steve Hamilton, author of Night Work, on Skin River

“Sidor is a prince of darkness, steeped in the noir tradition and not giving an inch. That said, he is also bountifully talented.” —Kirkus Reviews on Bone Factory

“Steven Sidor keeps the pacing piano-wire taut and selects his words with a vivisectionist's diabolical care.” —Stewart O'Nan, author of The Good Wife, on Skin River

“Ideal for those who enjoy queasy, uneasy, macabre reading – this is stomach churning suspense at its best.” —Lansing State Journal on Bone Factory

“With an eye for gritty detail and a predilection for metaphor, Sidor paints a morbid picture of deviance and death….The salty prose and clever narration will keep readers hooked.” —Publishers Weekly on Skin River

“…dark, harrowing, and unpredictable as a run of dangerous river. Sidor plunges you into chilling waters on page one and barely lets you up for air.” —Gregg Hurwitz, author of The Crime Writer, on Skin River
