Winner of the Edger Award this is a story of a prison interview of a supposed murderess. A creepy kind of book.

I liked it a lot. Not as "black and white,good-guy,bad-guy" as some murder mysteries. At the end I was still saying "Hmm?" and thinking it through. A good book.

1993 Edgar winner, has well developed characters (who you may or may not find likable)and an involved plot. At times almost think able to believe that the plot has been resolved and then there is another twist. This is the 2nd book written by an author that has gone to be very successful and adept at writing non-conventional plots. The action in this book can be graphic/unpleasant but well paced action. There has been a BBC mini series made of the book.

Really enjoy this author! Loved the book! Have to admit that I pondered on the ending to this book for quite some time. Worth the read if you ask me!
