REVIEWS
"This compact and extraordinarily atmospheric story packs much more than many longer books." * The Guardian * "It has been a while since Minette Walters published any full length fiction, but admirers won't be disappointed by The Cellar... this compact, well-told and extraordinarily atmospheric story packs more punch than many much longer books" * Guardian * "This compact, well-told and extraordinarily atmospheric story packs more punch than many much longer books." * The Guardian * "This dark novella reads like a particularly grim Grimm's Fairy Tale, with an all-too-credible contemporary setting." * Daily Mail * "Walters is adept at fashioning modern psychopaths, and she's done a great job here. The Cellar is gratifyingly menacing and, like all good fables, it carries a strong warning - monsters are made, not born." * Daily Mail *
AUTHOR INFORMATION
Minette Walters is one of England s best-selling crime writers. She is the author of twelve novels, winning the CWA John Creasey Award for the The Ice House, the Edgar Allan Poe Award in America for The Sculptress and two CWA Gold Daggers for The Scold s Bridle and Fox Evil. She lives in Dorset with her husband and has been translated into thirty-six languages. Her fascination with the dark side of the human psyche began when she read Grimm s Fairy Tales at seven years old. Her favourite characters were wicked stepmothers whose evil deeds led to their inevitable doom. She likes to shock her readers by exploring the underbelly of so-called respectable society, writing compellingly realistic novels with a claustrophobic edge. When her characters turn on each other, it s with a vengeance.
