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.

Very good investigation by a reporter into deaths that were brutal. Keep the reader's interest throughout, the ending was very hard to guess-in fact, I had not called it. I will read more by this author.

"Truth lies within a little and certain compass, but error is immense." Great writing drew me into this story, and the intricate maze of guilt and innocence kept my attention all the way through. If you love a good mystery in the Ruth Rendall tradition (not a cozy tale), you might like it too. Great that those on the trail are not connected to law inforcement.
