Trudy has betrayed her husband, John, who trusts and adores her. She's living in the marital home—a dilapidated, and priceless London townhouse—but John's not there. In his stead is the profoundly banal Claude—and together they're hatching a murderous plan. But there is an unexpected witness to their plot, who cares deeply about the outcome: the inquisitive nine-month-old inhabitant of Trudy's womb. Told from a perspective unlike any other, Nutshell is riveting—an unforgettably original, wickedly entertaining, novel of murder and deceipt from one of the world's master storytellers.
