Product description

Review

Praise for Blood of the Wicked

A Brazilian Federal cop in a country where there is no FBI or Secret Service, Silva and his men must do it all. Leighton Gage's crime novels transport you to São Paulo, Manuas, and Brasilia.
--Yahoo! Travel, from 5 Must-Read Books that Define Brazil

Blood of the Wicked manages to pack a huge amount into a spare three hundred pages; power politics, petty violence, sexual scandal, saintly courage, staggering poverty and obscene wealth. A book that makes you care about its large cast of characters, even when you know that they are going to die--frequently horribly. This is a novel as rich and complex as Brazil itself, with villains who make you want to spit, and heroes whose goodness is heartbreaking.
--Rebecca Pawel, Edgar Award-winning author of Death of a Nationalist

Gage creates a contemporary tapestry of Brazil . . . Gage's debut builds a compelling foundation for future Silva cases.
--Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Leighton Gage's Mario Silva series

Top notch . . . controversial and entirely absorbing.
--The New York Times Book Review

A dark, violent book with characters that seethe on the page . . . compelling writing. Readers will smell the steam and stench of the Amazon and recoil from the torture and depredation from which Gage averts his lens, barely in
time.
--Boston Globe
