When a black South American soccer star signs on to a team in the country’s racist south, headlines blare. And when he falls for the sensual Desmerelda, a stunning white pop singer and daughter of a wealthy politician, their sudden and controversial marriage propels the pair to center stage, where they burn in the media spotlight. But celebrity attracts enemies; some very close to home. And its dazzle reaches into the city’s hidden corners, exposing a life of grit and desperation the glitterati could never imagine. When a girl is found murdered, reporter Paul Faustino is caught between worlds as he witnesses the power of the media in making—and breaking—lives. Inspired by Shakespeare’s Othello, this modern tragedy of desire and betrayal, incisively and compassionately told, is a truly enthralling work of crossover fiction.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Emma | 12/21/2013

    " Some of this story follows Othello so closely (such as the names) that the ending threw me off. However, I liked the fact I didn't predict the ending. I'll stop with that so I don't spoil the ending for others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Brandee Terry | 11/22/2013

    " Not a bad book but I'll take the original (Shakespear's Othello) over this any day. I like the idea of a retake on such a well known story but this was lacking in character development. "

    " Great book about South American soccer and its danger. Soccer players all around will love this story of a star's life after a trade. Twists throughout will make you rethink sports all over the world. "

    " Started really well but there was no satisfactory conclusion to the end of the story it just kind of petered out...very disappointing was looking forward to recommending this to my students! "
