Nothing Can Hurt You Now by Simone Campos
My rating: 4/5
Publisher: Pushkin Vertigo
Publication date: 2nd February 2023

Lucinda has lived her whole life in the shadow of her glamorous and outgoing high-end model sister Viviana. But when Viviana suddenly disappears on a trip to São Paulo, Lucinda drops everything to track her down. 

Met with indifference from the police, Lucinda joins forces with Viviana's girlfriend Graziane to launch her own investigation. When she discovers that her sister had a thriving career as a sex worker, the list of possible suspects widens. Then a cryptic text suggests that Viviana is still alive but being held hostage. With the minutes ticking by, Lucinda and Graziane must track down the men from Viviana's past to discover who might want to do her harm. 

A furiously contemporary and vibrant thriller that crackles with danger.

I loved this!

The story follows sisters Lucinda and Viviana. Viviana, a model, is away for work and Lucinda is looking after her house. When she gets a message from Graziane, a lady who Viviana was supposed to be meeting up with, saying that Viviana has gone missing, panic ensues.

The Brazilian police aren't helpful at all so the women take matters into their own hands. Lucinda searches through her sister's personal items, trying to find out what could have happened. She discovers the truth about Viviana's relationship with Graziane and learns that her sister was actually a sex worker. This then makes their list of potential suspects that much more difficult.

After receiving a text which suggests that Viviana has been kidnapped, the chase to get to her before anything happens begins.

I really like the juxtaposition between the sisters in this novel. Lucinda is very 'by the book' and judges Viviana a little for what she does. I really loved Viviana's point of view and how she describes what a woman's place in society should be and how she challenges that. Really enjoyable!
