Mystery series, Chief Inspector Mario Silva #4
Enjoyed this very interesting and fast paced police procedural set in Brazil. When people who had flown together on a flight from Miami to Sao Paolo began to be targeted and shot in a bizarre and unusual way, Inspector Silva is called in to investigate. Motive and method are riveting.
The writing is fresh and engaging. The story is told almost entirely from the point of view of the investigators, Inspector Silva and his team. We see the inside workings of the police unit. Their methods and their personalities are revealed and there is humor in the way they relate. We see the story unfold through their interviews with suspects and others in the case, the reader tagging along during police investigations. I found this a very interesting read. I would however have chosen a different book cover as the picture of someone in chains, though arresting and attention getting, does not really reflect the story.
