Synopsis: María Paz is a young Latina who, like many others, has reached the United States in search of utopia. But her American dream turns into a nightmare when she is accused of murdering her husband, a white policeman, and is sent to jail.
However, María Paz’s life will take a most dramatic turn when she discovers that the true horror, that which will put her mettle to the test, awaits her on the outside. Laura Restrepo’s action-packed thriller grips us from the very first page. Beautifully put together and although terrifying, also great fun. A tribute to women, and a biting critique to the western world’s capitalist system and its fake dreams of prosperity.
