Winner of the Edgar Award and the Macavity Award for Best Novel
In prison they call her the sculptress: a grotesquely obese young woman convicted of cutting her mother and sister to pieces and rearranging their bodies on the floor like a jigsaw puzzle. She pleaded guilty to the crime, but no one has noticed that the facts don't add up until Rosalind Leigh comes to visit the prisoner, hoping to get a book deal out of her story. The more fevered Rosalind's pursuit of the truth, the closer she gets to the true source of the evil ascribed to the Sculptress in her cell.
