A Rio de Janeiro Thriller

With no witnesses and no weapon, it seems like the case of the one-legged homeless man found lying in a cul-de-sac on São João Hill, shot through the heart, will remain unsolved. But Chief Inspector Espinosa can't shake thoughts of the hapless victim--who would target a penniless man who posed no physical threat? Focusing his incisive mind and his usual unhurried inquiry on a group of wealthy guests who dined at a nearby mansion on the rainy night of the murder, Espinosa interrogates his way into the lives of his suspects, exposing lies, cover-ups—and another murder.

Praise for Blackout

"If Gabriel García Márquez wrote crime fiction, he might create a detective like Inspector Espinosa."--The Baltimore Sun



Praise for the Inspector Espinosa Series:

"This is entertainment of a high order, sly and smart, giving away nothing until the final pages."--The Washington Post Book World on A Window in Copacabana

"Engrossing and captivating . . . This policeman, with his existential sensibility, his exotic beat, and his literary merid, seems poised to join the ranks of the great modern international fictional cops."--San Francisco Chronicle on The Silence of the Rain

"Pleasurably addictive . . . One of those tricky mind games you can never be sure you've really solved."--The New York Times Book Review on Pursuit
