Nunca li nada da escritora Joy Fielding, mas já li maravilhas sobre as suas obras. THE PUPPET foi o livro que escolhi para me estrear com esta autora e apresenta-se como uma história cheia de suspense, onde nada é o que parece.
Eis a sinopse: «Living a no-strings-attached life in glamorous Palm Beach, beautiful, steely-nerved criminal attorney Amanda Travis knows exactly what she likes: spinning classes, the color black, and one-night stands. Here’s what she dislikes: the color pink, nicknames…and memories. Which is why she has shut the door on two ex-husbands, her estranged mother, and her hometown of Toronto. Then comes the news that will shatter Amanda’s untouchable world: her mother, who has always held a strange power over everyone she encounters, has shot and killed a complete stranger. Forced to return to Toronto, Amanda must confront her demons and unravel the truth behind her mother’s violent act — while the taunting, teasing name from her past dances in her head…Puppet…telling her that someone else is orchestrating her fate.»
Confesso que estou com as expectativas em alta. Espero não ser defraudado.
