The shape of snakes by Minette Walters( Book )

103 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in 14 languages and held by 2,591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[Mrs.] Ranelagh is convinced one of her neighbors on Garden Street is guilty of murder. Was it racism or greed that drove one of them to leave poor Mad Annie Butts for dead in the gutter? Her compulsion to solve this case is so magnetic that you are there with her every step of the way."--Sheri Kraft, Alibi Books, Glenview, Ill. Two very different women are united in the moment that one dies, leading the other to spend twenty painstaking years trying to uncover the truth about what she believes was a murder, in this new novel from Edgar Award-winning, bestselling author Minette Walters. In just seven years, Minette Walters has burst from the ranks of mystery writers to become a bestselling author the world over and today's preeminent practitioner of psychological suspense. With constant comparisons to P.D. James and Ruth Rendell and a growing American audience, Walters is poised for breakout success with The Shape of Snakes, her finest, and most finely wrought, novel yet. November 1978. The winter of discontent. Britain is on strike. The dead lie unburied, garbage piles in the streets-and somewhere in West London a black woman dies in a rain-filled gutter. Known as "Mad Annie," she was despised by her neighbors. Her passing would have gone unmourned and unnoticed but for the young woman who finds her and who believes-apparently against reason-that Annie was murdered. But whatever the truth about Annie-whether she was as mad as her neighbors claimed, whether she lived in squalor as the police said, whether she cruelly mistreated the cats found starving in her house-something passed between her and Mrs. Ranelagh in the moment of death that binds this one woman to her cause for the next twenty years. But why is Mrs. Ranelagh so convinced it was murder, when, by her own account, Annie died without speaking? Why does the subject make her husband so angry that he refuses to talk about what happened that night? And why would any woman spend twenty painstaking years uncovering the truth-unless her reasons are personal?
