Have you read any of Minette Walters’ books?  I recently enjoyed listening to the audiobook of The Chameleon’s Shadow, narrated superbly by Simon Vance.  A British soldier, gravely injured fighting in Iraq, becomes a suspect in a series of crimes.  An eccentric cast of characters populates this twisted plot, and you can be fairly sure with Minette Walters that things are not necessarily what they seem. 

My favorite book by Walters, however, is The Sculptress, winner of the Edgar Award in 1994.  A young writer is assigned to interview a woman imprisoned for the brutal murders of her mother and her sister.  Did she kill them, and if not, what really happened?  This is a beautifully written, memorable work of mystery. 

Please let me know what you are reading!
