Product description

Review

"Readers who like their thrillers to possess something beyond a fast-paced, tricky plot will find much to marvel over [here]...Breathes fresh air into the crime novel genre." --Los Angeles Times

"Effortlessly conveys ideas and characters...[and] displays the mystery novel as a richly expressive medium for ideas... Garcia-Roza will find an eager audience in English." --The Washington Post

"Combines elements of the suspense novel with an erotic Brazilian ambience in a mix that keeps the pages turning." --St. Petersburg Times

"A beautifully atmospheric, hard-boiled crime novel." --Booklist (starred review)

"Garcia-Roza's Hitchcockian trick of knowing exactly how much to reveal to keep his audience off-balance keeps this melancholic debut simmering." --Kirkus Reviews
