Product Details


Praise for Every Bitter Thing
“The odd thing about this detective [is that it’s] the elasticity of his ethics, not his essential integrity [that] makes him irresistible.”
The New York Times Book Review
“The book has clever dialogue, a twisting plot and an adventurous glimpse at the seamy parts of Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia and Sao Paulo. The case takes Silva and his team all over Brazil in an engaging, fast-paced story that is hard to put away for the night.”
Minneapolis Star-Tribune

“Silva’s solid fourth moves briskly, with colorful characters and crackling banter between the detectives.”
Kirkus Reviews
“Mr. Gage is a hell of a good craftsman.”
—New York Journal of Books

Praise for the Mario Silva series

“Gage smoothly expands his focus on the assassination of an ambitious bishop to encompass the controversial and entirely absorbing issue of whether the clergy should involve themselves in the politics of land distribution among the poor.”
The New York Times Book Review
“Realistic characters that readers can care about . . . The ultimate story of the haves vs. the have nots.”
Detroit Free Press

“Highly recommended.”
Library Journal, Starred Review

“Both a powerful political thriller and gripping crime fiction.”
South Florida Sun-Sentinel

“Terrifically written, intelligent, and powerfully evocative. Leighton Gage is a master storyteller.”
—Brian Haig, author of The Night Crew

“Achieves both a powerful political thriller and gripping crime fiction in his fascinating debut.”
Arizona Daily Star
