But somehow, from the confines of her cell, she needs to prove everyone wrong. House of Correction is beautifully written, clever, shocking, twisty, so believable and utterly compelling. This is another stunningly brilliant novel to relish from Nicci French."--Provided by publisher.

I am normally not a big fan of mysteries where a person is charge with a crime and has to be proven innocent. I liked this one, however, as a young woman works almost alone to escape prison. Kristi & Abby Tabby

The husband and wife team who write under the name Nicci French have managed to make a very unlikeable character a believable protagonist in a story set in prison. Tabitha, who has been sent to prison to await her trial for the murder of a neighbor shares many hostile personality traits with autistic people. She is bright and doesn’t want to plead guilty so she takes on her own defense. While managing to irritate everyone around her, including jury members and the judge, Tabitha’s eye for detail, particularly in watching CCTV tapes, proves that she can handle her own defense. Not only is at a very well-crafted tale, but it is an interesting look at the prison and judicial systems in England.
