Little Lies – Facts

descarga

In the book the murdered woman is found at the foot of a sculpture of the goddess Leto. In Greek mythology, Leto is a daughter of the Titans Coeus and Phoebe, the sister of Asteria, and the mother, by Zeus, of Apollo and Artemis.  Classical Greek myths record little about Leto other than her pregnancy and her search for a place where she could give birth to Apollo and Artemis, since Hera in her jealousy had caused all lands to shun her. Finally, she finds an island that is not attached to the ocean floor so it is not considered land and she can give birth. Once Apollo and Artemis are grown, Leto withdraws, to remain a  benevolent matronly figure upon Olympus, her part already played.
