I guess this would be called a "police procedural" but it does expand beyond that. Chief Inspector Mario Silva leads the investigation into the death of a man found in his apartment in Brasilia. The man had been shot in the stomach and then beaten to death, an ugly and very painful death. At first it seemed a crime of passion committed by someone close to the victim, but then Silva discovers other crimes committed the same way in different cities. What is the thread that ties them together?

He does find the thread but that doesn't immediately point out the murderer. In investigating the case Silva and his colleagues visit other cities, other countries, and I admit that at times I did not remember who was who. Perhaps this is partly because I didn't get clear descriptions of each as they came on the scene and later.

The novel is written in a spare style with a great deal of wit. It was enjoyable and quick to read.
