Editorial Reviews

Award-winning mystery writer Ellen Hart - who is also author of the "Sophie Greenway" series of mysteries - once more puts her Minneapolis restaurateur and part-time PI Jane Lawless through a struggle between being paid to discover facts and having to deal with the ramifications of uncovering the truth. Aimee Jolson’s performance highlights the warmth and curiosity that have made Lawless so beloved as, nearing 45 and once again in a rocky romantic relationship, she puts business plans on hold and helps a new employee track down a stepfather. To find him is simple; to safely unravel the web of relationships and deceits around him much less so.

Publisher's Summary

Minneapolis restaurateur Jane Lawless is at crossroads. The rough economy has put her plans for a third restaurant on hold, and her long distance romance is on the rocks and quite possibly unsalvageable. Unsure of what to do next, she takes her good friend A. J. Nolan up on his standing offer: To take her on as a private investigator. While still in training, her first job seems simple enough. All she had to do is find Annie Archer’s stepfather. Jane tracks down a likely match - a man who has made a small fortune in real estate. While she’s happy to close her first case, she finds it hard to reconcile the difference between PI work - finding what people pay you to find - and uncovering the truth, the whole truth, especially when clues in this seemingly simple case point to more threatening family secrets than just where Annie’s father has been hiding out. Ellen Hart’s The Mirror and the Mask is another engrossing mystery filled with the deceit and psychological intrigue that fans have come to expect from this Lambda and Minnesota Book Award-winning author.

This is a good one in the series

I like this series enough that I keep purchasing the next one in the series. I’ve experienced all of the Jane Lawless so far via audio. I’ve only heard Aimee Jolson narrate this series and I think she brings some of the bigger characters to life.
Ellen Hart is a great writer. I do sometimes struggle with some of the characters’ personalities. They aren’t always likable! The reoccurring themes of heartbreak, angst, infidelity, loneliness, manipulation, etc. is hard for me to take at times. It makes me kind of sad. However, the excellent writing, the quirky characters, the plots and storylines keeps me coming back! This particular book is one of the best so far, in my opinion.
