Perfect DaysBook - 2016
A twisted young medical student kidnaps the girl of his dreams and embarks on a road trip across Brazil in the English-language debut of one of Brazil's most celebrated young crime writers. Teo Avelar is a loner. Clarice is working on a screenplay called Perfect Days about three friends who go on a road trip across Brazil in search of romance. Teo begins to stalk her, and when she ultimately rejects him, Teo kidnaps her, and they embark upon their very own twisted odyssey across Brazil, tracing the same route outlined in her screenplay. Both tense and lurid, and brimming with suspense from the very first page, this is a psychological thriller in the vein of "The Talented Mr. Ripley" - a chilling journey in the passenger seat with a psychopath.
