If you are looking for a page-turning literary novel that you can read in one day, All Yours, a slim crime novel about a woman’s revenge on her cheating husband, is the book for you.  The author, a native Argentinean, tells a gripping tale of domestic conflict and, at the same time, sheds light on Argentina’s class structure and the selfish behaviors of the entitled class.  This author’s crime novels are all bestsellers in Latin America...and for good reason!  All Yours is a great read.
