"Bellotto has no trouble discovering dark doings...São Paulo's size and diversity give this volume's 14 storytellers room to roam...In the year of #MeToo, Bellotto's Akashic entry has a timely feel, giving noir a host of feminine faces."
--Kirkus Reviews

Praise for editor Tony Bellotto:

"Undoubtedly, if Marlowe and Harry Bosch are Los Angeles, Matt Scudder is New York and Maigret, Paris, the detective Remo Bellini is São Paulo's most complete translation."
--O Globo

From the introduction by Tony Bellotto:

Encyclopedias will say that São Paulo is the main financial, corporative, and commercial center of South America. The census will show that São Paulo is the most populous city in Brazil, the Americas, the Portuguese-speaking world, and the entire Southern Hemisphere. Scholars will inform us that São Paulo is the most multicultural city in Brazil, having received, since 1870, millions of immigrants from every part of the planet, and that it is the city with the largest populations of people of Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Spanish, and Lebanese/Arab origin outside their respective countries. Experts will assure us that São Paulo has a high crime rate. Sociologists will confirm that the city has an area known as Cracolândia (Crackland) and that among the violent and neglected communities spread along its periphery one bears the ironic name Paraisópolis. Politicians will roar that São Paulo is the engine that drives Brazil...

More than historians and sociologists, writers have always been able to transform cities into great characters. This is the way we decipher devouring sphinxes.
