Life after crime from the International Booker-shortlisted author of Elena Knows

Fifteen years after killing her husband’s lover, Ines is fresh out of prison and trying to put together a new life. Her old friend Manca is out now too, and they’ve started a business – FFF, or Females, Fumigation, and Flies – dedicated to pest control and private investigation, by women, for women. But Senora Bonar, one of their clients, wants Ines to do more than kill bugs—she wants her expertise, and her criminal past, to help her kill her husband’s lover, too.

Crimes against women versus crimes by women; culpability, fallibility, and our responsibilities to each other—this is Pineiro at her wry, earthy best, alive to all the ways we shape ourselves to be understandable, to be understood, by family and love and other hostile forces.
