BRAZILIAN ODYSSEY takes the reader on a wild ride throughout my vast homeland. Feel the pain of Tatiana seeking justice for her slain cousin and of journalist Lucio battling vigilantes in Belém. Meet Vera, the social worker, who faces down a drug lord in São Paulo and a crafty Colombian kingpin who plies the corridors of power to expand his Amazon trade. Based on eye-witness testimonies, the author weaves a chilling yet hopeful story of contemporary Brazil.
