Set in the author’s home city of Bogotá, Colombia, this absorbing, pacey women-centered novel has a brutal murder at its core, and offers sharply observed insights into corruption and double standards around class, gender and race, as seen through the eyes of two unforgettable female protagonists. Gripping, brutal, honest, insightful, this is smart crime fiction with social conscience.This crime mystery novel with a twist looks deeper that a crime fiction novel and in to the heart of the society that is happy to overlook the brutal rape and murder of an innocent teenage girl because of the identity of the culprit and those involved in the cover up. In a world where silence can be bought, House of Beauty shows how innocent people and families are left to suffer injustice or worse, used as scapegoat. Our Reader Review Panel were impressed at the depth of this compact crime novel. Here are some of the snippets of the great reviews on the House of Beauty Book Page:
Christine Woolfenden - 'A slow burning but very absorbing tale of innocence in a corrupt city. A welcome change from the usual crime fiction, definitely worth a read.' Britteny Sutcliffe - 'I literally could not put this book down. The ending definitely brings a twist that I did not expect. I would advise to read this book, It only took me two days to read!' Gillian Wilmott - 'A crime novel with a difference, set in the lawless corrupt city of Bogotá. Told from the viewpoint of two heroines it takes some concentration to read, but it’s compelling and I would recommend it.' Dee Jessup - 'House of Beauty was not what I was expecting, but isn't that what you want from a good book?'House of Beauty was released on the 8th March and is an incredibly intriguing read for those looking a crime mystery novel with social commentary, twists turns and intrigue.
