    One thought on “A Vingança Serve-se Fria”

    1. Philip Kerr is best known for his Bernie Gunther historical series, which follows a Berlin cop through the middle decades of the twentieth century. But he has also written a surprising number of stand-alone thrillers; this one is from 1997. Dave Delano is just out of prison, having done five years while keeping his mouth shut rather than testify against a top Miami mobster. In the joint Delano learns from a cellmate about a ruse the Russian mob uses to get bales of cash across the Atlantic and i [...]

    2. Philip Kerr has some range. Here he's Elmore Leonard. Almost. This book is a caper with a lovable crook for a protagonist, creepy bad guys, FBI supervisor, and a smart, charming, FBI agent love-interest. Have you read Out of Sight by Elmore Leonard? In some ways, here it is again. I love Leonard, so naturally I love this story too. Plot driven, it's a sharp, entertaining caper where the reader is left wanting to high-five the protagonist at the end.

    3. This book is NOT a Bernie Gunther book. It is about Dave Delano, who gets out of prison for not testifying about seeing a gangster kill someone. He gets paid off when he's out, but decides to get even. He convinces the gang leader to hijack drug money on its way to being laundered in Russia. The deal is to get a fancy boat and ship it to Europe. On the transport ship will be drug runner boats hiding the cash. What they don't realize is the FBI is following someone who is shipping drugs on the sa [...]

    4. 3.5 As per usual, a fine writing job with a random throw-away plot. This one's a high-seas caper involving a yacht transport vessel, which I now know is a thing that exists and certainly helped maintain my interest, but, well it's a caper, and rooting for an outright criminal does not come naturally for me.

    5. Dave Delano has spent 5 years in prison for refusing to testify against a mobster, Nudelli. He meets a Russian and together they plan to hijack some boats. Turns out money is hidden in upholstery of luxury boats and transferred out of the US. The boats cross the Atlantic ferry. Dave convinces Nudelli to finance a plan where the money will be stolen at sea and transferred to a freighter. Nudelli’s rep, Al has been told to kill Dave when everything is set up. Surprise ending, Dave does not rende [...]

    6. I read this a while ago, so I don't remember that much: still what I remember (and don't remember) only reinforces the low-esteem I have for this book.Not that it's bad, it just isn't good, fresh, nor surprising. I didn't find myself rooting for the hero or terribly surprised by the outcome, even though we are kept in the dark about (basically) everything.

    7. Un ex-presidiario desarrolla un plan para hacerse millonario y, a la vez, vengarse del culpable de su injusto encarcelamiento. En el desarrollo del plan, se enamora de una agente del FBI que, casualmente, se encuentra en el mismo barco carguero. Tensión amorosa y acción.

    8. Pretty entertaining story but nothing to write home about! I did enjoy the atypical ending though. :-) The other book I've read by Kerr was a more involved plot and I liked it better.
