Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro. Three policemen have been killed over the course of a few days. Espinosa, chief of the 12th Precinct, doesn't have much to go on. When the body of a woman connected to one of the dead cops is found on the sidewalk below her apartment window, things get even more complicated, as a reputed "witness"--the wife of a high-ranking government official--becomes obsessed with the case, and with Espinosa.

Nothing is quite as it first appears as Espinosa finds himself in his old haunts of Leme and Copacabana, and in the all-too-familiar terrain of corruption, greed, and fear.

Praise For…

“Beguiling.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Deft . . . This is entertainment of a high order, sly and smart, giving away nothing until the final pages.” —The Washington Post

“The imperturbable maverick of Rio's 12th Precinct matches wits with a serial killer whose path seems to be equally fortuitous. . . . Garcia-Roza, who writes like nobody else in the world, has produced altogether the most ebullient and delightful tale of serial homicide you'll read this year.” —Kirkus Reviews
