Chief Inspector Mario Silva and his team have a heavy work load with several high-profile cases. First, a suicide bombing that was apparently the work of a militant Islamist group. Then, a gubernatorial candidate is assassinated in broad daylight at a campaign rally. Could the cases be related? To complicate Silva’s investigation, a criminal with a very bad grudge against the chief inspector has been released from prison and is plotting ugly revenge.

Quotes & Awards

  • “In his own hard-boiled, agreeably literate, and tourist-cautioning fashion, [Gage has] made South America’s largest nation accessible to readers who might otherwise never have been exposed to its jungles—both the wild and urban varieties.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Well-written police procedurals set in an exotic location…what’s not to like? Think of Ed McBain’s 87th Precinct transplanted to Brasília, and you wouldn’t be far off, although Gage’s stories exhibit a somewhat more serious bent…Hands down the first ‘do not miss’ mystery of 2013!”

    " Nice addition to the Silva series. This book is a bit different in the sense that Silva is only in half the book; indeed, this book is more of an ensemble than a vehicle for Silva. And I appreciate the turn back to the grim world Gage is so good at writing about. "

    " I just never got into it. I never remembered the characters' names so I would get confused. It wasn't a bad book, I can see how some would enjoy it, but I just never got into the book so I didn't really enjoy it "
