This is the second book in the dolphin trilogy The Perfect Pair, the factionalised memoir of Europe's top 1970s dolphin trainer. It reveals the plight of the captive dolphin and gives an insight into the relationship between one particular trainer and his dolphins, whisking the reader on a journey deep into the dolphin psyche. Sometimes heart-breaking, sometimes funny - always compelling. Within these pages dwells a graphic story of the plight of the commercial dolphin. However, there are also heart-warming tales of the trainers and handlers who work with them. The Perfect Pair: The Mirror Cracks is the continuation of The Perfect Pair: The Enchanted Mirror (Matador, 2012) - now a core text for the BA(Hons) English and Creative Writing Course at The University of Salford. It is an immensely personal account of a young boy's first love - a special love that takes him on a mystical journey deep into the world of the dolphin, effectively casting him into a reality that constantly questions man's overall appraisal of these very special people of the sea. It tells of a mind connection - a psychic bond so strong that it enables the boy and his dolphins to become Europe's top performing team...the best of the best. No one reading this book will ever view a dolphin in the same light again.
