Every Bitter Thing by Leighton Gage
A Mario Silva Mystery (4th in series)
Soho Crime (Trade Paperback)
Publication Date: October 2011
About Every Bitter Thing (from the publisher): The son of the Foreign Minister of Venezuela is found dead in his apartment in Brasilia, the victim of a crime of passion … or so it seems. Due to the high-profile nature of the case, Chief Inspector Mario Silva of Brazil's Federal Police is called in to investigate. As he delves deeper, he discovers that a chain of murders have occurred throughout Brazil, all with the same MO. They seem to be the work of the same killer — but the victims, of diverse ethnicities, cities of residence, economic classes, and walks of life, have nothing in common. What sinister motive connects these killings?
