Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Tabitha is accused of murder. She is in prison awaiting trial. There is a strong case against her, and she can't remember what happened on December 21st. She is alone, frightened and confused. 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.
Okeham, England. Tabitha is in prison awaiting trial for murder. She'd only recently moved back to her childhood hometown, and she can't remember what happened on December 21st. Her entire life is being picked apart and scrutinized-- her history of depression and medications, her past relationship with the victim, her former teacher. Tabitha dissects every piece of evidence, every testimony she can get her hands on. The world is convinced she is a killer. She must attempt to solve her own case-- from the confines of prison. She's sure she's innocent-- but what if she's only lying to herself? -- adapted from jacket
