"A.J. is a master at creating word images that remain with the reader long after the book is finished." Rick S. Friedman
Murder, romance and the paranormal. It is sprinkled with humor. Also contains ghosts, a dog that’s adopted by Henry and a crazy hooded merganser duck. And a baby as his arch enemy.
"Madman in the Mirror" is a story about a man - Henry Johnson - who is raised by a psychopath and forced to watch - even as a baby - his father murder people on a regular basis. He is also abused and brainwashed, turning him into a sociopath. Henry stalks and murders people efficiently - he tells himself that he may be a killer, but he doesn't want people to suffer. He is haunted by hallucinations, including a specter in his mirror that talks to him.
"It is hard to explain the plot without spoiling things - but I will say that this is a very interesting story, that in the end addresses nature vs. nurture, among other things, such as life after death and heaven and hell." Katy Sozaeva
