Since 1992, Minette Walters has been captivating readers and critics alike with her psychological novels that explore the dark heart beating below a calm surface. Her unique ability to bring crime ‘uncomfortably close to home’ has earned her the title ‘Queen of British crime fiction’, and her novels have been published in 35 different languages. Her flair for biting dialogue and razor-sharp characterisations have made each of her novels a consistent bestseller around the world.
Never one to follow rules, Minette eschews a series character, preferring instead to have each novel stand on its own. With a readership in the millions, her fans clearly endorse this break from tradition. Minette’s work has also won crime writing’s top awards, including the Crime Writers’ Association John Creasey award for best first novel for The Ice House and the Edgar Allan Poe Award for best crime novel published in America for The Sculptress. Five of her novels have been adapted for television.
