Read from March 09 to 24, 2010

Disturbing but compelling. Once you get past the idea of a book about snuff films and the violence that permeates the Amazon frontier the author seduces you with his masterful fast paced plot. Inspector Silva is in a race to find a girl and to locate an extraordinarily evil woman ( not like the ELO song for sure). It didn't end the way I thought it would either but there is another high body count-no surprise there. Silva is the master of the game. Condescending corrupt senior bureacrats think they're playing him as always but Silva gets the last laugh. These books certainly don't do tourism for Brazil any favors. They depict a society brimming with violence and corruption.
