"This ambitious novel doesn’t romanticize its historical figures. As Evita might have wanted, the common people are its stars.
"A compelling mystery and a passionate and empathetic portrayal of the endlessly fascinating Evita Perón combine in a gripping tale that brings 1945 Buenos Aires fully alive."
— Carolyn Hart, author of What the Cat Saw
