A young veteran of the US Army, River Roulet is struggling to shake the horrors of his past. War is behind him, but the memories remain. Desperate to distract himself from the images haunting him daily, River abandons the world he knows and flees to the country he's always dreamed of visiting: Brazil. Rio de Janeiro is everything he hoped for and more. In the lead-up to Carnaval, the city is alight with music, energy, and life. With a few friends at his side, River seems to be pulling his life together at last. Then he meets the enchanting Natal, an impassioned journalist and free spirit--who lives with the gangster that rules much of Rio. As their romance blossoms, River and Natal flee together into the interior of Brazil, where they are pursued by the sadistic drug lord, Tio Amato, and his men. When River is forced to kill one of those men, the chase becomes even deadlier. Not only is the powerful drug boss after them, the Brazilian government is on their trail as well.

Just finished this book. And to be fair I mainly took the book out because Chad Michael Murray was one of the co authors. But I was pleasantly surprised... I kind of had an idea where the story was going and was completely stunned when I realized I was wrong. Great story line, didn’t want to put the book down and was well written!

This is another very good book by Heather Graham. It was also written by Chade Michael Murray, whom I have not read any books by. In this story, an U.S. Army veteran, River Roulet, is suffering images from the war. He decides to take all his money and travel to Brazil. He finds a woman who he falls in love with. He also wants to take down the drug czar, but doesn't know who he can trust. He travels the country while eluding the drug law and the government. I did not see the ending coming the way I pictured it. This is a page turner from beginning to end.
