'It was a slaughterhouse, the most horrific scene I have ever witnessed...Olive Martin is a dangerous woman. I advise you to be extremely wary in your dealings with her.' The facts of the case were simple: Olive Martin had pleaded guilty to killing and dismembering her sister and mother, earning herself the chilling nickname 'The Sculptress'. This much journalist Rosalind Leigh knew before her first meeting with Olive, currently serving a life sentence. How could Roz have foreseen that the encounter was destined to change her life for ever? 'This is one of my books of the year' Sunday Times 'A devastating effective novel' Observer 'Awesomely accomplished ...The plot twists and grips, like an octopus' Daily Telegraph
Publisher and industry reviews
UK Kirkus review
Roz's publishers are clamouring for a book and the gross Olive, serving a life sentence for the self-confessed gory murder of mother and sister, seems just her meat for a study of a pathological monster. Roz finds herself opening a very different can of worms. Spirited writing more than compensates for slightly strained plot. (Kirkus UK)
