On the banks of a Brazilian river lies Sao Tiago, a town poised between the old ways and the new, fought over by gangsters and big business. It's a place for people with nowhere else to run; a place where Sam has ended up. When a man lies bleeding, what starts as a fight to save a life becomes a battle with Sao Tiago's dark heart."

Complete and unabridged.
