It seemed logical that Captain Jose Da Silva of the Brazilian Federal Police Force, a man with a maverick reputation for problem solving, be the one assigned to solve Brazil's growing scourge of death squads. They were unpredictable and ran on their own agenda. So did Da Silva. His superiors knew he worked on the fringes of authority and would send him to the edge, to the remote border town of Paraiso. There had been five new underworld slayings and the signs pointed to a new kind of death squad. These killers were different. Their victims were different. The Captain's plan would have to be different as well. Planting a story in a Rio newspaper, Da Silva makes himself the brave bait to trap these perpetrators. But would he end up mincemeat for these murderers? Would the right killers bite? Or will there be too many takers to sort out? Would his own tight-knit plan become a noose around his own neck? Only a stunning young beauty with the smell of danger drifting in her wake can show the good captain the proper path to take. It's trouble in paradise
