It is the eve of the FIFA World Cup, the globe's premier sporting event. The host country is Brazil. All eyes are on the country's principal striker, Tico "The Artist" Santos, the greatest player in the history of the sport. All the politicians in Brasilia, from the President of the Republic on down, have their seats squared away for the finale, when they hope to see Argentina, Brazil's bitterest rival, humbled by the Brazilian eleven. But then, just three weeks before the first game, Juraci Santos, Tico's mother, is kidnapped. The star is distraught. The public is appalled. The politicians are outraged. And the pressure is on Chief Inspector Mario Silva to get her back. Suspects aren't lacking. Among them are a cabal of Argentineans, suspected of having spirited the lady away to put Tico off his game; the star's gold-digging, top-model girlfriend, whom his mother dislikes and has been trying to get out of his life; his principal rival, who wants to play in the World Cup in Tico's place; and the man whose leg Tico broke during a match, thereby destroying his career. In the end, Silva and his crew discover that the solution to the mystery is less complex--but entirely unexpected.

Gage is blessed with a rare talent. His narratives can run from the hilarious to being graphically sad, but all remain lifelike. I've never been to Brazil, and I don't speak Portuguese, but after reading any of his novels there's no question but that in many respects you've been there. In this book there's a next door neighbor's description of living next to a kidnap victim in a high end housing development which includes the mornings being awakened by two parrots, after which " the rooster checks in" which bring tears of laughter. Chief Inspector Silva and his crew may well be the only honest people in the whole country. Gage knows his subject ( criminality) and spins terrific tales. He knows his territory (Brazil) and his novels are a descriptive and absorbing tour de force of the people, their customs and how they live. Take one for a ride....you won't be disappointed.

This was the first book I read by Leighton Gage and I will be coming back for more. I guessed the identity of one of the kidnappers but not till I was about 75% into the story. The plot made sense and the author clearly has a good grasp of Brazilian life because Brazil is as much a part of this story as the kidnapping plot itself.

I found Leighton Gage's newest installment in his internationally known Inspector Silva series a great read, well crafted and smartly paced. With each book, Silva and company seem to get more interesting. A VINE IN THE BLOOD is one of those special novels you sit down with and before you realize it you're fifty pages along. Gage has that rare ability to excite and draw the reader in with supenseful action that is devoid of gratuitous violence. Engrossing characters (some we love to hate) appear in every chapter and the narrative adroitly rushes forward. One is compelled to keep reading to see what happens next. Gage's series is in the tradition of the classic police procedural. His Brazilian landscape, which he knows intimately, sparkles with local color and strange entanglements.

The powerhouse, snowballing plot centers around a high-profile kidnapping. The mother of Brazil's top soccer star is snatched from her home in the dead of night, setting off a national hue and cry. Is it done for the ransom, or are the kidnappers trying to throw off the soccer star for the upcoming contest with Argentina? It's all carried off with panache and surprising plot twists. The ending has the inevitable meeting the unexpected.

This is one crime novel that outstrips film and TV police tales. Highly recommended.

"Thy mother is like a vine in thy blood" (Ezekiel 19:10)

The blood-red tint of bougainvilleas is the main concern of an unusual color-blind gardener named Luca Vas when he arrives at the São Paolo home of Juraci Santos.
Tico "The Artist" Santos is the principal striker for the Brazilian team, which has been favored to win the FIFA Fútbol World Cup, which is being hosted by Brazil and is slated to start in three weeks. Whereas for many fútbol lovers, the game is their main love, for The Artist, elite though he may be, his mother is more important.

Fútbol is better known to us as soccer, but the rest of the world prefers the original name because it is a game matching balls and feet. I was fascinated by the little tidbit Gage dropped in the story that the English brought the game to Brazil. It took off in such a way that the prophetic words of Ezekiel can equally be rephrased to say, "Fútbol is like a vine in the blood" because it takes hold of a fan to the point of mania. Thus, there is a national push to get this crime solved as quickly as possible. Chief Inspector Mario Silva and his crack team from the federal police are summoned to São Paulo and the game is afoot.

It is immediately obvious that there is a long list of people who might want to keep The Artist off the field.
I was caught up in the fútbol fever within a few pages of opening the book. Leighton Gage paces this interesting, exciting story just like the build-up to a big game. . Inspector Mario Silva's mandate is clear: he is to find Juraci Santos alive and before the World Cup begins. All of Brazil is depending on it. He has 13 days.

Murder mysteries are my main reading and it is always exciting to find a novel that takes me to an interesting locale and that is an original, exotic and stimulating story. The finale of this complex tale was not what I expected, but it made sense. This is the fifth of the Mario Silva series. As it has progressed, the characters and their personal lives are being fleshed out, which adds to the story without diluting the action. Though part of a series, this book can be read as a standalone because it is complete within itself.

I have read a number of Leighton Gage's, Inspector Silva novels and each one is better than the last. This book grabs you in the first few pages and continues to hold you in its grasp until the end. A great read.

Writing style is unique, engaging and shows great insight into Brazilan culture. This is author's third book I have read and recommend starting with intial series publication to maintain the story line. A great series and read!

Good writer using well-honed personalities within a series of like-minded tales in an unusual setting. Looking for a standard mystery likely to hold your interest? This is the one.
