Praise for Claudia Piñeiro's Thursday Night Widows:

"An agile novel, a ruthless dissection of a fast decaying society.”—José Saramago, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature

“A gripping story. The dystopia portrayed is an indictment not solely of an assassin but of Argentina’s class structure and the willful blindness of its petty bourgeoisie.”—The Times Literary Supplement

“A fine morality tale which explores the dark places societies enter when they place material comfort before social justice, and security before morality.”—Publishers Weekly

Ines is convinced that every wife is bound to be betrayed one day, so she is not surprised to find a note in her husband Ernesto’s briefcase with a heart smeared in lipstick crossed by the words “All Yours” and signed, “Your true love.”

She follows him to a park on a rainy winter evening and witnesses a violent quarrel he has with another woman. The woman collapses; Ernesto sinks her body in a nearby lake. When Ernesto becomes a suspect in the case she provides him with an alibi. After all, hatred can bring people together as urgently as love. But Ernesto cannot bring his sexual adventures to an end, so Ines concocts a plan for revenge from which there is no return.

Claudia Piñeiro, formerly a journalist and playwright, is the author of literary crime novels that are all bestsellers in Latin America and have been translated into six languages. All Yours follows on the success of Thursday Night Widows, published in 2010 in the United States.

Inés is so absorbed in her own soap opera that she is not even concerned when her daughter does not come home at night.
