Sanctum - Denise Mina - Signed

£9.99

Product description

Why do some women find criminals irresistible? Why do some marry convicted murderers while they are in prison? These are some of the issues Denise Mina addresses in her fourth thought-provoking novel which combines acute psychological insights with great writing and a page-turning narrative. Set in a prison in the north of Scotland, So Special is narrated by a doctor who is awaiting trial on a highly publicised murder charge. Why, the papers speculate, has this doctor killed convicted serial killer, Wayne McManus? What makes him so special, when she has worked with prisoners like him for eight years? Did he tell her something so terrible that she felt bound to take the law into her own hands? The truth - as always - is rather more complicated, and involves another woman who has been writing love letters to Wayne, and who eventually marries him in prison. And then the murders start; murders which involve details never publicly released, and which were known only to Wayne and the police...
