Lucinda has lived her whole life in the shadow of her glamorous and outgoing high-end model sister Viviana. But when Viviana suddenly disappears on a trip to Sao Paulo, Lucinda drops everything to track her down.

Met with indifference from the police, Lucinda joins forces with Viviana’s girlfriend Graziane to launch her own investigation. When she discovers that her sister had a thriving career as a sex worker, the list of possible suspects widens.

Then a cryptic text suggests that Viviana is still alive but being held hostage. With the minutes ticking by, Lucinda and Graziane must track down the men from Viviana’s past to discover who might want to do her harm.

A furiously contemporary and vibrant thriller that crackles with danger.

Publisher Review

'Tightly-tied suspense... striking female characters... [Simone Campos] draws portraits of a generation disillusioned by frustrations, pressured by beauty standards and with their own "quota of nightmares"' - Estado de Minas 'Unpredictable, feminist and political... the reader will reach the last paragraph hungry for more' - Roendo Livros (blog) 'A thriller filled with action, irony and eroticism, with strong women on a frantic quest' - Raphael Montes 'Surprises, seduces and distresses us. The result is a novel of great force and narrative tension' - Carola Saavedra 'Simone Campos offers us a strong novel with an engaging and agile narrative, which combines the pleasure of reading with reflection on the limits that society imposes on women' - Martha Batahla
