Best-selling author Minette Walters captivates mystery aficionados throughout the world with her evocative, multi-layered novels, which have been translated into 22 languages. In The Echo she spins a finely-wrought web of secrets and betrayals, love and guilt that entangles everyone who touches it. A homeless man has been found dead of starvation—huddled next to a food-filled freezer—in a London socialite’s garage. When journalist Michael Deacon interviews the wealthy woman, he suspects she is hiding something. His search for answers leads him on a perilous journey through unsolved crimes of the past and the shadowy world of London’s down and out. Edgar Award-winner Minette Walters grips her readers’ emotions with her ever-heightening psychological suspense. British actor Simon Prebble’s dramatic performance will keep you enthralled throughout the sinuous plot and the shattering finish.

Minette Walters is perhaps a bit more sophisticated than I am. Not hard to be really. I enjoy her plots and her characters. I generally enjoy her payoff at the end. This had a good story, well-linked, and characters that you could like and even feel for them. I wasn't sure about the payoff in the end.
SPOILER ALERT (kind of):
We get a payoff and then it gets taken back. Maybe others won't agree with me. I like my payoff straight up. This seemed a bit of connivance. Either do it or don't.
Having said this, I will definitely listen to more of her books. I do enjoy them. And they don't make me squirm.
