Blurb (from back cover): "Buenos Aires, 1987. When a beautiful young woman named Lisandra is found dead at the foot of a six-story building, her husband, a psyschoanalyst, is immediately arrested for her murder. Convinced of Vittorio's innocence, one of his patients, Eva Maria, is drawn into the investigation seemingly by chance. As she combs through secret recordings of Vittorio's therapy sessions in search of the killer-could it be the powerful government figure? the jealous woman? the musician who's lost his reason to live? -Eva Maria must confront her most painful memories, and some of the darkest moments in Argentinian history."
Opinion: After struggling with the beginning of how the story was being told, I enjoyed this mystery. It had a good plot twist near the end that I didn't see coming. Some strong sexual content that isn't for the light hearted.
