What starts as a workmanlike mystery novel quickly becomes a haunting account centered around Detective Espinosa, a bookish, uncorrupted police veteran. The deceased becomes so in an enigmatic event and the story quickly entwines his secretary Rose, his elegant wife Bia, his somewhat mysterious business colleague Lucena, a street sharp Max, and a handful of other characters each of whom is properly fleshed out and returns to the action often enough to keep them straight. The story seems unsolvable until very late, and while unpredictable, leaves a number of questions outstanding--if having all the loose ends and plot mentions tied up and explained at the end is important, do not read this book. The references to Rio de Janeiro are palatable and not overwhelming--only in one spot does the author annoyingly inventory a series of inscrutable street names for half a page. If anything, the author's juxtaposition of the Detective's personality and wanderings through the city and characters, mixed with the setting, go to pointing to the huge range of unseen lives all being experienced together in a compact geography.
