Summary
House of Beauty is a high-end salon in Bogo<U+00df>t<U+0019>s exclusive Zona Rosa area, and Karen is one of its best beauticians. But there is more to her role than the best way to apply wax, or how to give the perfect massage. Her clients share their most intimate secrets with her. She knows all about their breast implants, their weekends in Miami, their divorces and affairs. One rainy afternoon a teenage girl turns up for a treatment with Karen, dressed in her school uniform and smelling of alcohol. The very next day, the girl is found dead. Karen was the last person to see the girl alive, and the girl<U+0019>s mother is desperate to find out what she knows. Most important of all: who was her daughter going to meet that night?
