The book is definitely something to read. I practically finished it in an entire week. Wow, what a masterpiece. Have yet to see the movie, but I recommend the book to anyone who enjoys a good thriller/mystery. Minette Walters does an extremely wonderful job in her descriptions and you can practically see what's happening in your head. So if you're looking for a great read, try Minette's books, as i've been reading them since I read "The Sculptress" and each new book has a different surprise, be it murder, or some other fun thing. Check them out and enjoy a new author's take on Murder, Mayhem and best of all Mysteries! I know I'll check them out throughout time to time.
