    Inhaltsangabe

    A thought-provoking Colombian crime novel set in and around a beauty salon in Bogota.

    House of Beauty is a high-end salon in Bogotá's exclusive Zona Rosa area, and Karen is one of its best beauticians. But there is more to her role than the best way to apply wax or how to give the perfect massage. Her clients confide in her, and she knows all about them. Their breast implants, their weekends in Miami, their divorces and affairs.

    Karen has problems of her own. She's in trouble, and she needs money. More money than she can make at House of Beauty.

    Most serious of all: a teenage girl has been found dead, and Karen was one of the last people to see her alive. So the girl's mother is desperate to talk to her....

    Kritikerstimmen

    " House of Beauty offers a unique glimpse into modern-day Colombia and an intriguing mystery around issues of gender, class, and race, where a woman's worth is too often tied to her beauty, yet her beauty too often gets her in trouble. It's a pleasure to see a story told through the lens of two very different heroines, rare in crime fiction. And, in these times, this novel is also a much-needed critique of everyday misogyny and corruption." (Winnie M Li, author of Dark Chapter)

    Ok... But the narrator

    The book and it’s plot are entertaining. Not a masterpiece, but just that - entertaining.
    However it seems like the narrator didn’t even try to pronounce the Colombian words and names properly. It really spoiled the audio book experience for me.
