Product Details

Praise

“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 

“The equally descriptive and provocative prose forces the reader to confront the surprising juxtaposition of a morally driven contract killer.” World Literature Today
