Description
The Sculptress by Minette Walters
A WOMAN IMPRISONED FOR HIDEOUS SLAUGHTER. A WRITER TRAPPED IN A TRAGIC PAST. ONE HIDES THE TRUTH THE OTHER NEEDS.

In prison, they call her the Sculptress for the strange figurines she carves - symbols of the day she hacked her mother and sister to pieces and reassembled them in a blood-drenched jigsaw. Sullen, menacing, grotesquely fat, Olive Martin is burned-out journalist Rosalind Leigh's only hope of getting a new book published.

But as she interviews Olive, in her cell, Roz finds flaws in the Sculptress's confession. Is she really guilty as she insists? Drawn into Olive's world of obsessional lies and love, nothing can stop Roz's pursuit of the chilling, convoluted truth. Not the tidy suburbanites who'd rather forget the murders, not a volatile ex-policeman and her own erotic response to him, not an attack on her life.

Not even the thought of what might happen if the Sculptress went free...
