Thursday Night Widows, Paperback / softback Book

Thursday Night Widows Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Three bodies lie at the bottom of a swimming pool in a gated country estate near Buenos Aires.

It's Thursday night at the magnificent Scaglia house.

Behind the locked gates, shielded from the crime, poverty and filth of the people on the streets, the Scaglias and their friends hide lives of infidelity, alcoholism, and abusive marriage.

Claudia Pineiro's novel eerily foreshadowed a criminal case that generated a scandal in the Argentine media.

But this is more than a story about crime. The suspense is a by-product of Pineiro's hand at crafting a psychological portrait of a professional class that lives beyond its means and leads secret lives of deadly stress and despair.

It takes place during the post 9/11 economic melt-down in Argentina but it's a universal story that will resonate among credit-crunched readers of today.
