The killer by Patrícia Melo( Book )
46 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in 8 languages and held by 399 libraries worldwide
"Melo's prize-winning novel (Matador) is a thriller about a man who accidentally becomes a hired killer and a local hero. Once again Landers achieves an excellent result: colloquial, entirely readable, and authentic, with just the right tone for its narrator whose language one reviewer has called 'racy hoodlum-speak.'"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58

In praise of lies by Patrícia Melo( Book )

Jose Guber is in love with a deadly woman. While writing his next crime novel, he is in search of a unique murder weapon, which is how he meets Melissa, a serologist who specializes in venomous snakes. Melissa becomes rather too interested in Jose's dastardly plots -- unashamedly plagiarized from the classics: Chesterton, Poe, Dostoevsky, his editor none the wiser -- and she especially likes the ones where diabolical women seduce and corrupt weak men. Melissa makes it clear that she would like to adapt one of the plots to dispose of her present husband, enabling Jose and Melissa to be together. -- Description from http://www.bookadda.com (Oct. 11, 2011)

Black waltz by Patrícia Melo( Book )

A successful and renowned conductor of a major symphony orchestra in Sao Paulo is married to a beautiful and talented violinist, close to thirty years his junior. But his happiness is undermined by two fears: that he will never wholly share her life because, unlike her, he is not Jewish; and that she will be unfaithful to him. Jealousy -- beyond the reach of reason -- haunts his every moment, gnawing at his trust, his love, and ultimately his sanity. Black Waltz opens a fascinating and harrowing window into a mind bordering on paranoia and psychosis. -- Back cover
