     In prison they call her the Sculptress: a grotesquely obese young woman convicted of cutting her mother and sister to pieces and rearranging their bodies on the floor like a jigsaw puzzle. She pleaded guilty to the crime, but no one has noticed that the facts don't add up until Rosalind Leigh comes to visit the prisoner, hoping to get a book deal out of her story. Rosalind doesn't expect to feel sympathy for a brutal murderess - who would? - but she finds it increasingly hard to believe Olive Martin's as evil as she's been painted.
