A great who-done-it!
It is two weeks away from the biggest game in Brazil, the FIFA World Cup against their bitter rival Argentina. The country is gearing up, bets are being placed, and the fans are putting all their hopes on Tico “The Artist” Santos. When the Artist’s mother Juraci is kidnapped, the country is riveted to the case hoping beyond all hope she is returned before the big game so the Artist is at his best. Chief Inspector Mario Silva is assigned the case along with his partner Arnaldo Nunes, together they quickly develop a long list of potential suspects. Juraci is not well liked and many would like to see the Artist off his game when the World Cup is played so the investigators need to work fast through the list of suspects and get the case solved in the two weeks before the game. The Artist’s fiancée Cintia—a fashion model—is at the top of the list. She is considered a gold digger by everyone around her, especially by her soon to be mother-in-law who incidentally hired a private investigator to dig up dirt on the model. Each of the suspects begins pointing to another suspect and has the Inspector and his partner going in circles following up each lead. When suspect’s bodies begin piling up, the case goes into overdrive in the fear Juraci won’t be alive when they find her. “A Vine in the Blood” is the fifth in the Chief Inspector Mario Silva series. With the book, Leighton Gage continues his deft writing to create a mystery that will have his reader riveted following each twist and turn and trying to figure out who the kidnapper is before they are revealed.

This book I won via a LibraryThing Contest it’s a series about Chief Inspector Mario Silva in this book the FIFA World Cup is about take place when Tico Santos’s mother is kidnapped three weeks prior to the cup. It’s up to Mario Silva to find her. There are many people that could be potential suspects. Some motives are to throw Tico off his game and insure he isn’t up to his game. A gold digging future wife who his mother was investigating, a man whose career was destroyed by Tico. This book is definitely full of action and adventure leaving you wondering who had the most to gain by Ms. Santos being out of the picture.
