A police mystery and internal conflict come together in this novel by the author of Thursday Night Widows. Soon after Rita's body is found, the investigation into her death is closed. Her mother seems to be the only one unwilling to give up on the truth, but racked by illness she is the least likely candidate to go after a murderer. A difficult trip from the suburbs to the capital, an old debt of gratitude, and a revealing conversation are the facts that are unfolded in this novel. It is an intimate, yet critical novel which holds the female body as its real protagonist as it uncovers secrets, the hidden facets of an authoritarian regime, and society's hypocrisy. This is a story that breaks through the silence and loudly ratifies the freedom to choose. In 2010 Pi???eiro was awarded the LiBeraturpreis Prize for the best novel written by a woman.
