Description

King's Number One bestselling suspense novel, 'a compelling masterpiece' (Sunday Telegraph) about a housekeeper with a long-hidden secret from her past, now with a stunning new cover look.

The sheets . . . had to be hung perfectly. She'd go to that window, year in and year out and yell at me: 'Six pins, now, Dolores! You mind me, now . . . I'm counting, and my eyes are just as good now as they ever were!

When Vera Donovan is found dead at the bottom of the stairs, the police want to question her housekeeper Dolores Claiborne.

And Dolores does have a confession to make. But it's not what the police are expecting to hear as they listen to her life story - a story which hearkens back to her abusive marriage and the suspicious death of her husband in the small Maine community of Little Tall Island.

Dolores Claiborne has a story to tell. And you'd better pay attention or else.
