Case of Lisandra P. introduces readers to Eva Maria,
who has her set out for clearing her psychoanalyst, Vittorio
Puig, who has been accused of killing his wife, Lisandra.
Eva Maria goes through his notes and recording sessions, and
visits him in jail trying to figure out if he had actually
killed Lisandra and to focus on his alibi. While doing so,
Eva Maria is forced to face her own hurtful past.
Case of Lisandra P. is told in an unconventional way
in the beginning from different characters' perspectives.
It is a little confusing until you find the rhythm, and then
it's enjoyable. The mystery of who actually killed Lisandra
is not resolved until the end, and it is a surprising plot
twist. It was interesting to see the lengths to which a character
will go. There is some strong sexual content that might make
some readers uncomfortable.
The Case of Lisandra P. is a great, quick-paced mystery
that held this reader's attention to the very end. It is an
interesting look at a psychoanalyst's personal and professional
life and just how impaired some people are in dealing with
every day things. Highly recommend for readers who enjoy psychological
looks at characters and mysteries.
