In "Los caimanes", Felisa Morel is a beautiful, intelligent, and passionate woman who also suffers from anorexia. On the night of August 19, 2000, she appears dead in her country house outside of Buenos Aires. She was married to the son of the president, who tries to dismiss the details of her death. Clara de Marchi, who was her best friend, suspects the celerity of her death and initiates an investigation of her own. This novel is not only a police story of an inexplicable crime, but also a snapshot of a social class dominated by hypocrisy, competition, personal interests, and the bid for power.
