About the Author

Born and raised in Brazil to a Brazilian father and an American mother, Karen Keilt had a childhood of luxury and privilege. She began riding horses at age five and competing at age nine. She attended University of Sao Paulo, Faculdade Objetivo. However, in 1979, she fled to the US, after being unlawfully held prisoner and tortured by Brazilian police for 45 days before being ransomed. Since coming to America, she has enjoyed an eclectic career, including serving as Riding Master at the YMCA, and the first-ever female general manager of a men's professional RHI League hockey franchise, the Florida Hammerheads. She always gravitated back to her love of writing--first as a newspaper columnist in South Carolina, and later writing four screenplays: The Parrot's Perch, Bethebotu, The Gnashing of Teeth, and Maracanazo. Keilt enjoys traveling, hiking, Anusara yoga, amateur photography, and horseback riding. She lives in Carefree, Arizona, with her husband, Jack, and their dog, Luna.

This book does have a very different world. The summary tells the reader nicely what to expect. The point of view varies, it seems like it's more from the author's point of view than the characters. The characters all have at least one, if not more, quirk that will make them stand out in the readers' memory. The events are fast-paced, colorful, and almost surreal. The book moves quickly from one scene to the next in an almost helter-skelter way. The characters are not always likable, but they are not all meant to be. They will likely take the reader by surprise on more than one occasion. There really is a lot of corruption and dirty cops, the author handles that subject well. This book is recommended to adult readers.
