The Case of Lisandra P.

This book started out very confusing. I found it really hard to follow along and then about half way I finally got into the swing of things. By the ending I was pretty mad as the plot and story pretty much fell apart.

This one had some pretty interesting characters and a very interesting story of a woman found dead by her husband. It had some great twists and turns but really for me it felt like a first or second draft. It was pretty interesting to learn about the Argentina's Dirty War as I had never heard of it. But by the end it just fell apart.

Book Blurb for The Case of Lisandra P.

A gripping psychological thriller for fans of The Girl on the Train and The Silent Wife about a wife’s secrets, a husband accused of murder, and a marriage gone terribly wrong

Buenos Aires, 1987. When a beautiful young woman named Lisandra is found dead at the foot of a six-story building, her husband, a psychoanalyst, 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.

In breathless prose that captures the desperate spinning of a frantic mind, Hélène Grémillon blurs the lines of past and present, personal and political, reality and paranoia in this daring and compulsively readable novel.

“A cunningly plotted tale that is by turns cerebral, suspenseful—and ultimately shocking.” –Publishers Weekly
