Book Description

Tim and Tim, an elderly couple, have been running a bed & breakfast in Edinburgh, Scotland, for over thirty years. Their relationship is one of kind love and deep trust—they tell each other everything. A handful of lodgers give the old house a lively character. Jamie, the charming American hunk who won’t settle down; Javier, a Spanish cook who prefers pornography to real people; Aleysha, an Ugandan refugee and her newborn baby.

Into this idyll burst two attractive young men from Slovakia. Everybody agrees that they must be a couple—why else would they be staying here? They hug and cuddle, touch each other openly, and even kiss without shame.

But there is something strange about them. Something does not fit. Before long, Tim and the nosy lodgers are uncovering a secret nobody could have expected. A secret which begins to affect everyone and even threatens to unravel the landlords’ long-term relationship.

Marten Weber’s most compelling contemporary work to date, “In the Mirror, a Monster” is a masterpiece of modern story-telling. A whodunnit without a murder, a thriller without violence, it is a captivating and authentic mystery novel, rooted firmly in the localities of Yorkshire and Scotland, but also the intricate connections of the international gay community.

With a keen ear for dialectical nuances, Marten Weber offers a truly compelling read. The style is tight and to the point, dramatic and hilarious, infused with breathtaking clarity and an often magical ability to lay bare what lies behind our motivations and feelings.

Marten Weber won the Rainbow Literary Award for his portrayal of Benedetto, Casanova's gay brother. Learn more about the author on

5.0 out of 5 stars Hitchcock meets O'Henry... November 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
with some Barbary Lane and Agatha Christie mixed in! A crazy quilt of literary genres In The Mirror, A Monster is the best of each: Comedy, Mystery, Drama, Travelogue, Philosophy with a little gratuitous sex thrown in. Enjoy every page; I know I did!

Tedious and long-winded. He`s an excellent writer, though and his dialect is fun. Couldn`t wait till it was over, though.

2.0 out of 5 stars In the Mirror a Monster January 7, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am still trying to plough my way through this book as the Scottish words get in the way. It does not measure up to the fast paced Benedetto Casanova and Gabriel.

More About the Author

Marten Weber is of mixed parentage (a man and a woman) and has lived in more countries than he can count on hands and feet together. He speaks several languages, and believes in multiculturalism, tolerance, and free champagne also in economy class.

He dislikes bigots and fanatics of all denominations. He is hugely uncomfortable with labels, even seemingly benign ones such as 'gay,' 'straight,' or 'sugar-free' and prefers instead to judge people by their sense of humor and shoe size. He believes that everybody, regardless of race or gender, should be gay for a year.
