What a treasure! Minette Walters has a gift for revealing the raw emotions that lie a scratch's depth beneath the veneer of civilization. The plot might read a bit gruesomely but it's actually an EXCELLENTLY-paced detective novel. The undercurrent of mutual attraction between Rosalind Leigh the writer-detective, left wounded by her past, and an ex-policemen with problems coming at him from all sides is masterful. This book shows you cannot judge a book by its cover, but the cover might not be the opposite of what the book contains, either... This is captivating reading, perfect for a chilly night with a hot toddy beside you.
