About the Author

Minette Walters has been described as the Queen of British Crime Fiction and her work has been translated into 26 languages. Her first novel, The Ice House, won the CWA John Creasey Award in 1992 and The Sculptress won the Edgar Allan Poe Award. Television rights have been sold in her first five books and the sixth is currently in production. She lives with her husband and two children in Dorset.


This Edgar Award-winning mystery turns on the relationship between a troubled journalist and a woman convicted of a gruesome murder. (Oct.)

There are many excellent British actresses who regularly read audiobook productions; so with all the talent available, why did the producer choose an American to read this very British thriller? Sandra Burr handles the dialog with an adequate accent but lapses into American pronunciation for the narrative. The shifts vary from distracting to irritating. The deficiencies in the narration are unfortunate because the story is a good one: Rosalind Leigh is a writer assigned to investigate a sensational murder case. Olive Marting has been sentenced to life imprisonment for the grisly murders of her mother and sister. Roz finds the woman to be sane and comes to believe that Olive is innocent. The Sculptress is a compelling tale of psychological suspense that will appeal to fans of Ruth Rendell. Larger collections may consider purchase.‘Nann Blaine Hilyard, Fargo P.L., N.D.
