The Case of Lisandra P.

by Helene Gremillon, translated by Alison Anderson - £11.99  Penguin Putnam Inc (2016)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780143126584 | ISBN 10: 014312658x

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.
