Purchase: Barnes&Noble / Amazon
The son of the Foreign Minister of Venezuela is found dead in his apartment in Brasilia. Due to the political nature of the crime, Chief Inspector Mario Silva of Brazil’s Federal Police is called in to investigate. As he delves deeper into the murder, he discovers that a chain of murders have occurred throughout Brazil, all with the same MO: victims are first shot in the stomach, then brutally beaten to death, and, even more puzzling, they were all passengers on TAB flight 8101 from Miami to São Paulo. What sinister motive connects these killings? And why does it appear one passenger on that flight, a fifteen-year-old boy who was later raped and killed in prison, is at the heart of it all?
When a Foreign Minister’s son ends up dead it’s up to Mario Silva to get to the bottom of what happened and who’s responsible. What should be a normal murder investigation turns into to finding out who is killing all sorts of people from a plane flight. As Silva and his partner goes around interviewing the passangers they find themselves dealing with mysterious deaths that seem to only have one thing in common, a flight from Miami to Brazil. We meet all sorts of shady characters in this book, from a drug dealer to a child sent to prison to die there. I love this series which delves deep into Brazil and people there. Definitely a lover of Soho Crime Books!
