With his acknowledged individual storytelling expertise, D. M. Mitchell pens yet another taut psychological thriller with a difference that twists and turns to its deliciously devious and unexpected conclusion. Discover for yourself why D. M. Mitchell is being hailed as one of the most exciting new writers of thriller and supernatural tales in the UK.

From reviews of Mouse:

If you are a fan of psychological thrillers this is a must read. It reminded me very much of Ruth Rendell’s novels - It’s really that good!

D.M. Mitchell is extremely talented, he is gifted with the ability to transport the reader in such a way as to make it possible for the reader to visualise the book as though you are there witnessing scenes & events as they unfold.
Try D.M. Mitchell, I wasn't disappointed!

Fantastic read. Well written and delightfully thought out plot. Kept me awake all night. Cannot wait to read another D.M. Mitchell book.

Mitchell, an Englishman, is a poetic talent. But this is a psychological thriller, so be prepared for a wild ride.


'They played a cruel game of cat and mouse - but someone forgot to tell the mouse the rules...'

It’s the summer of 1976 and Vince Moody is a quiet and unassuming projectionist at the run-down Empire cinema in the small town of Langbridge in the middle of the Somerset Levels.

His life is a drudge, and he’s going nowhere; the only female attention he gets is a stream of cruel jokes and jibes from the Empire’s cleaners, and especially from the obnoxious Monica Andrews. But his life is about to change dramatically when he sees and falls secretly in love with Laura Leach.

Laura lives all alone in an 18th Century folly known as Devereux Towers; a brooding old building sitting alone in its field a few miles from Langbridge. Recently returned to the area to bury her father and having inherited Devereux Towers, Laura is something of a recluse. The local children call Laura the ‘Witch of Devereux Towers’; some people call her ‘damaged goods’. She too is lonely and unassuming, a desperately troubled woman haunted by her dark, secret past. Haunted by what lies behind the blue-painted door in Devereux Towers which Laura lets no one enter…

Then Laura Leach meets Casper Younge. He’s handsome, well-spoken, gentle and loving, and Laura falls head-over-heels in love with him. Vince Moody is devastated to have lost the woman of his dreams, but he soon discovers that Casper Younge is not all he first appears. He’s blackmailing the Empire’s manager, Martin Caldwell, for one thing; and who is the attractive woman Vince sees Casper meeting in Glastonbury? What plans are they hatching?

Martin Caldwell is having serious troubles of his own, aside from managing the failing Empire cinema – his affair with Monica Andrews the cleaner has gone horribly wrong. His world is falling apart, and the last thing he wants is a visit from Casper Younge dredging up a murky past he thought he’d left behind.

Then both Casper and Monica go missing; the longer they are gone, the more the thoughts turn to their possible deaths. But if they are dead, who is responsible for killing them?

Soon, everyone is caught up in a dangerous spiral of events that draws them inexorably into a world of jealousy, deceit, passion, blackmail and murder, where the hunter becomes the hunted, the mice turn on the cats.

Set against the impressive yet claustrophobic landscape of the Somerset Levels, Mouse is a chilling exploration of the corrupt depths people will sink to in the name of revenge, power, greed and love and is D. M. Mitchell at his imaginative best.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A little gem of a book 7 février 2013
Par Legin
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Great stuff. Picked on a whim and loved it. The plot twists and turns around a colourful set of characters who don't always turn out to be what you think. A real pleasure to read and the pages glide (kindle) by.
I am now going to buy another book by the same author and recommend this one warmly to all and sundry.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A delightful book I found hard to put down ! 15 mars 2013
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
A book of intrigue, of surprises, a study of the dark side in human nature and it's consequences. A brilliant window into the year of 1976 (I remember it well) full of suspense with interesting physcological reflections on the lives of the characters making them who they are ... a brilliant storyline, well written, thoroughly recommendable.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Once I got into the book, I couldn't stop 28 décembre 2012

Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Once I got into the book, I couldn't stop. I suspected how certain threads of the storyline were going to unravel and as the conclusion advanced, I thought for sure I was right. Not to spoil an ending, but the thrill of the unexpected explanation was the sort that only follows the finality of a worthwhile read.

Here again another D.M. Mitchell story that plays with your head throughout the entire story. Just when you think you have it figured out, who did what and who is responsible from that, he goes and throws some other twists in and confuses the game.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Pretty Good Who-Dunnit Mystery 29 juillet 2013
Par LisaMariesAttic - Publié sur Amazon.com

I enjoyed reading this novel and appreciated the cleverness of the "scam" that was the driving force behind this murder mystery. I thought the development of the characters was excellent and the writing style very fluid and descriptive. There were twists & turns throughout and an excellent surprising twist at the end. Definitely enough to keep my interest, even though it was sort of slow in places and I thought it more of a who-done-what mystery than a psychological thriller. I immediately read another of the author's novels after this one (The Soul Fixer) and found that it was a little more fast paced.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Mouse or Mousetrap? 17 octobre 2013
Par I.A. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
To be fair, the first half of the book is absolutely excellent: riveting, well-paced, lots of twists and turns. Couldn't believe it was on the Kindle free list. The two main characters (Vince and Laura) are well drawn, three-D characters, and the reader will deeply care what happens to them. The author does a fine job of fleshing out supporting characters and not simply making them "plot devices." At least three of them have weaved a fairly tangled web of their life, and the author knits all of these pieces together seamlessly. There are enough unexpected plot changes (like good key changes in music) that keep the reader riveted to the page and at the edge of their proverbial seat.
.
But then comes the second half, where we get "more is better." There can only be so many people who get their head's bashed in, or then it becomes just another "basher" book. Almost everyone who dies in this book gets their head bashed: poker, walking stick, pick ax, etc. Since it's not always the same character doing the bashing (and since this is such a messy way to kill someone), it's unclear why this gratuitous choice is made over and over again--it begins to be salacious. However, far worse than this is the implausible ending. It is one thing to have a "dark horse" candidate be revealed as the murderer/murderess at the end of a mystery. It's another thing to have that person be completely out of character with anything that has gone before in their story arc. Imagine "Casablanca" if Elsa had decided to turn in Rick and her husband to the Nazis before she got on the plane--sure, it's an unexpected plot twist, but it doesn't fit. If you twist just for the sake of twisting, something will break, and that's what happens here.
