Summary

'Jane Isaac knows how to tell a good yarn. Expertly plotted and true to life' Mel Sherratt. 
 
Stuart Ingram was once a respected local councillor... 
 
The first time the police knocked on Gina's door, they arrested her husband. 
 
The second time, they accused him of child abuse. 
 
But he died a guilty man. 
 
This time, the police are here for Gina – to tell her that her husband is dead. Murdered, just two weeks before his trial. 
 
Gina always stood by her husband. Even when everyone else walked away. She believed the trial would clear his name. But now Stuart is dead. 
 
And his wife is the suspect. 
 
It's a race against time for DC Beth Chamberlain to uncover the truth – especially when a second man turns up dead. 
 
Domestic noir meets police procedural in this pacy thriller from Jane Isaac, perfect for fans of Samantha Downing, Fiona Barton and K.L. Slater. Previously published as Presumed Guilty.

    En 1793, la escritora de la primera reivindicación de los derechos de la mujer, Olympe de Gouges, fue guillotinada en la actual Place de la Concorde de París. En plena Revolución francesa, de Gouges se convierte en una de las intelectuales más osadas de su tiempo: empuñaba su pluma para escribir tratados, diatribas, ensayos epistolares e incluso teatro abolicionista, enfrentando los incesantes sabotajes de sus pares políticos y literarios.
    Estos escritos, que ella misma imprimía en formato de libros, afiches y panfletos, revistieron los muros de la ciudad. De Gouges pasó a la historia como una de las figuras más importantes de las primeras corrientes feministas, hasta ahora leída únicamente a través de biografías. Escritos disidentes coloca en circulación, por primera vez en nuestra lengua, una selección de su dramaturgia y ensayos políticos prologados por Lina Meruane. Ambas autoras conforman una escena letrada ficticia donde irrumpen con la potencia de su imaginación política y dialogan en las lindes de sus propias épocas.
