Best-selling author Minette Walters writes thrillers that wed classic mystery conventions with contemporary sophistication. In The Ice House - winner of Britain's John Creasey Award for best first crime novel - she serves up a chilling story of love, loyalty, and deadly intrigue.

A small British village has long suspected that the three women living in a local manor house are witches - or even worse. So when an unidentifiable body is found in the home's ice house, everyone is set to believe their guilt, especially police inspector Walsh. Ten years ago, Walsh suspected one of the women of murder, but was unable to make a case. Now, he plans to do whatever it takes to untangle the women's secrets. With one unexpected plot twist after another, Minette Walters delivers a mystery which surprises right through to the very end. Narrator Simon Prebble gives voice to Walters' many wonderful characters and the dark web of secrets hidden deep beneath life's surface.

    " Walters is a gifted writer, and the characters in this book were certainly compelling, but the storyline was a little too creepy for me. After reading The Ice House, I have (again) come to the inescapable conclusion that I need to stick with the "cozy mystery" genre. Yes, dead bodies abound in the cozies, but the mystery is usually solved comfortably over a cup of tea. Predictable, you say? Yep, that's for me. "

    " This one was a re-read, and I enjoyed it immensely. Walters' prickly cast of characters shines in this twisty tale, and she keeps revealing secrets right up to the end. At the same time, its a powerful meditation on the assumptions we make about others, and the things we do to protect ourselves. "

    " Clever and creepy, I agree with the other reviewers. Loved the first 6 or so of Walters' novels and then could not go on after The Shape of Snakes. Clever and creepy got waaaaay too creepy for me. "

    " Just started listening. Too soon to tell yet. Am I talking to myself now? Perhaps it is I that needs to be deleted. "
