- The second in a series of three by Olguín, following on from the acclaim for Fragility of Bodies. The Financial Times selected it as one of the three best thrillers of 2019. As before there are great characters, cliff-hangers, erotic scenes and humour adding plenty of thrills along the way
- Veronica is a successful young Buenos Aires journalist, beautiful, unattached, with a healthy appetite for bourbon, married men and, on occasion, foreign women. She is a fascinating and complicated heroine, driven by a sense of justice but also by lust and ambition.
The Foreign Girls is a gripping thriller that also shines a light on the phenomenon of femicide in Latin America, where the rape and murder of women may be used as tools of intimidation or tactics between warring families or groups involved in drugs trafficking and corruption.
Two foreign girls are murdered after a high society party in Yacanto del Valle, northern Argentina. Their bodies are found in a field near sacrificial offerings, apparently from a black magic ritual. Verónica Rosenthal, an audacious, headstrong Buenos Aires journalist with a proclivity for sexual adventure, could never have imagined that her holiday would end with her two friends dead. Not trusting the local police, she decides to investigate for herself.
