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.

THE SULPTRESS is an intriguing mystery about a very gruesome crime(the murder of a mother and daughter.) The author provides many clues with 'twists and turns' that will keep you reading and guessing 'who did it,' well into the night. A 'creepy' but good thriller!

A writer suffering from writers' block has the opportunity of interviewing and writing a book on the Sculptress who has been convicted of brutally murdering her own mother and sister.

A suspenseful, psychological story with plenty of twists.
