Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In prison, they call her the Sculptress for the strange figurines she carves-- symbols of the day she hacked her mother and sister to pieces and reassembled them in a blood-drenched jigsaw. Sullen, menacing, grotesquely fat, Olive Martin is burned-out journalist Rosalind Leigh's only hope of getting a new book published.

But as she interviews Olive in her cell, Roz finds flaws in the Sculptress's confession. Is she really guilty as she insists? Drawn into Olive's world of obsessive lies and love, nothing can stop Roz's pursuit of the chilling, convoluted truth. Not the tidy suburbanites who would rather forget the murders, not an attack on her life-- not even the thought of what might happen if the Sculptress went free...

Synopsis:

Everyone knows about Olive Martin, the huge, menacing woman who carved up her mother and sister so completely that she was nicknamed "The Sculptress". But when journalist Roz Leigh interviews Olive in prison, she finds that Olive isn't what she expected . . . and that Olive may be hiding something--perhaps even her own innocence. Coincides with Walters' new hardcover, The Scold's Bridle.
