The Shape Of Snakes

By Minette Walters


The extraordinary new novel by the award-winning, bestselling author of The Sculptress and The Scold’s Bridle.

“I could never decide whether ‘Mad Annie’ was murdered because she was mad or because she was black.” So begins Minette Walters’ gripping new story of one woman’s twenty-year quest for justice—or is it for revenge?

When Annie Butts dies in a rain-soaked gutter in 1978, almost everyone is sure she was killed in a traffic accident. Only one person—the woman who found Annie as she died—is convinced she was murdered. She has no evidence, but she’s prepared to risk everything—including her marriage—to prove it.
