Thrilling police procedural,
This review is from: Dying Gasp (A Chief Inspector Mario Silva Investigation Book 3) (Kindle Edition)
DYING GASP is another brilliantly written book by Leighton Gage about horrific crimes and police official corruption that plague real life in Brazil.
Aside from the masterful storytelling, the character of Mario Silva is what makes this a most outstanding police procedural series and outshines the best writers we have today.
As a big fan of Henning Mankell I can say Leighton Gage is in the same league or better.
The story opens with Silva updating his boss on a prisoner being held in a cell where he's being raped at least six times a day. His boss is shocked, and tells Silva he's gone much too far this time.
Silva explains that this prisoner is no better than the other prisoners, the only difference is they prey on grown men while this prisoner preys on children.
I couldn't put this book down.
