From official release/information:
Book Description: Breaking with traditional narrative form by using all the various voices of its diverse characters, this tense thriller mixes family, political scandal, revenge, and stars in the Amazon jungle. Ever since the day her father was assaulted and made an invalid, Isabela Pastir has watched the attacker rise to power as the governor of the state of Pará and one of the most significant drug dealers in the Amazon region. In an effort to get close to him and learn his secrets, she becomes his lover and suddenly finds herself pregnant. Now her brother, who has been attempting to repress the family tragedy, finds himself abandoning his life in the United States to travel back to his hometown in search of his sister—and to seek the vengeance for that which he was unable to leave behind.
