This is a rather complicated, but not impossible, story about three parents of a school, three women who send their children to the same public school, Pirriwee in Australia: Madeline, Celeste and Jane.
The first woman Madeline, is mature is forty years and is also divorced, he rehízo his life and contracted nuptials for the second time, he has three children two of his second marriage and one of the previous marriage, nevertheless every day must see the face to the current Wife of his ex-husband, since they have a son who attends the same school. Celeste on the other hand is the typical woman who steals the looks and attracts attention for her beauty, has two beautiful twins and apparently a life of the same way, social position, a good husband and a luxurious house, however there is something that the whole World unknown. Finally we have Jane, she is the youngest of the three, maybe too much to be a mom, is new to the city and just wants to get along with the rest.
This is one of those books that exceed expectations, it is certainly very well written in simple prose, once you start really do not want to stop. One of the proxies of the school has died, they have killed him, everything happened suddenly while a fundraiser was organized that organized the school, the plot is so well made and elaborate that it is catchy from the beginning, the author never mentions The motive of murder, or who they have murdered, much less the name of the murderer. Undoubtedly it is a very interesting proposal and a challenge of the writer to carry it out.
This is the first part of the plot, after the author presents this situation, the story comes back eight months ago and tell us details of the lives of the characters. In each chapter are the testimonies of different people who attended the collection in the school. This becomes quite entertaining, listening to the different points of view of the different characters of the story in the same situation, is a text that traps from beginning to end without doubt.
But it is not just another book but a crime, it addresses familiar issues, examines the links between friendships and delves into the lies we all once tell ourselves to feel good about. In a very intelligent way he investigates machismo, abuse and self-inflicted hatred. The protagonists are eloquent and endearing, each one has its charm and win the reader’s love, this is a work well carried from beginning to end, despite being a “big” book reading is very cumbersome and light.
