Description - The Foreign Girls by Sergio Olguin

Wealthy, scenic Tucaman is shocked by the brutal murder of two young women - but is it down to black magic or age-old misogyny and corruption?

When two European backpackers are found murdered after attending a high society party in northern Argentina, sacrificial offerings left near the bodies point to their involvement in a Macumba rite. But for their friend Veronica Rosenthal, a courageous investigative journalist with a proclivity for sexual adventure, the story smacks of a cover-up.

Sure enough, Veronica's determination to get justice for the 'foreign girls' quickly reveals a political dimension to the murder and leads her into very dangerous territory, bringing her face to face with old enemies, as well as new ones.

'One of the three best thrillers of 2019.' - Financial Times

'A distilled single malt noir, a gripping reflection on the woes and angst of Argentinian society.' - NB Magazine

'A superbly-paced corruption thriller which reaches an almost unbearably tense finish.' - Morning Star
