Minette Walters's 6 best books

Minette Walters is England’s bestselling crime writer. Her new novel is The Last Hours.

One of the author's six best books, as shared at the Daily Express:

My favourite author. He wrote page-turners about people who understand their flaws and try to triumph above them.

This is about a hopeless whisky priest in Latin America, where religion is banned and he is the only one left who can bring solace to people. You can’t read it without crying.
Read about another entry on the list.

The Power and the Glory also appears among Joanna Cannon's top ten clerics in fiction, Michael Arditti's top ten novels about priests, and on John Mullan's lists of ten of the best nameless protagonists and ten of the best episodes of drunkenness in literature. It is one of seven books that made a difference to Colin Firth.
