Betty Boo by Claudia Piñeiro
Introduced by Anne Brichto, Addyman Bookshop, Hay-on-Wye
This morning I am in Buenos Aires with Nurit Iscar (Betty Boo) staying in an exclusive gated community where a leading industrialist has had his throat slashed. Claudia Pineiro’s book is scorching with wit and humour. The main characters display quirky traits and intelligence that make you fall in love with them in less than two pages. Roll over Scandinavia, the Argentinians may be the new masters of crime.
