The Simple Art of Killing a Woman

Part thriller, part social criticism, this unputdownable novel is set between the Amazon rainforest and the Brazilian town of Cruzeiro do Sul. The storyline follows the narrator as she becomes enmeshed in local femicide trials fighting the devastating injustice faced by hundreds of thousands of Brazilian women each year. Strong, determined, and powerful, this is writing that shakes you to the core.
