Southwesterly Wind

An Inspector Espinosa Mystery

Inspector Espinosa Mysteries (Volume 3)

Luiz Alfredo Garcia-Roza; Translated by Benjamin Moser

Henry Holt and Co.

A young man predicts a murder and identifies the perpetrator—himself—in this third entry in the critically acclaimed Brazilian crime series

When a terrified young man arrives at the station with a bizarre story, Chief Espinosa of the Copacabana precinct is more than happy to set aside his paperwork. A psychic has predicted that the man would commit a murder, it seems, and the prediction has become fact in the young man’s mind. It’s a case more appropriate for a psychiatrist or philosopher, but Espinosa rises to the challenge and slowly enters the web of this psychologically conflicted man.

As the southwesterly wind—always a sign of dramatic change—begins to blow, what at first seems like paranoia becomes brutal reality. Two violent murders occur, and their only link is the lonely, clever man who had sought Espinosa out a few days earlier for help.

In Southwesterly Wind, the third in this atmospheric, erotic series featuring the inimitable Inspector Espinosa, Luiz Alfredo Garcia-Roza once again “breathes fresh air into the crime novel genre” (Los Angeles Times).
