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
