Product Details


“For 35 years The Name of Death was Julio Santana, a Brazilian contract killer. Klester Cavalcanti doggedly pursued Santana for several years in order to tell his gruesome story, a terrible tale that chronicles the seduction of a 17-year-old Amazonian jungle kid into a lifetime of grotesquerie that did not end until he had murdered 492 people, leaving him to endure a denouement consumed by bad dreams Dante might have conjured and James Ellroy deconstructed.” —Barry Gifford

“A rare and very personal look at how a good, religious boy became a monstrous professional assassin. A fascinating page-turner that will keep you reading late into the night.” —Catherine Pelonero, New York Times bestselling author of Kitty Genovese and Absolute Madness
