A young man predicts a murder and identifies the perpetrator-himself-in this third entry in the critically acclaimed Brazilian crime series When a terrified young man arrives at the station with a bizarre story, Chief Espinosa of the Copacabana precinct is more than happy to set aside his paperwork. A psychic has predicted that the man would commit a murder, it seems, and the prediction has become fact in the young man's mind. It's a case more appropriate for a psychiatrist or philosopher, but Espinosa rises to the challenge and slowly enters the web of this psychologically conflicted man. As the southwesterly wind-always a sign of dramatic change-begins to blow, what at first seems like paranoia becomes brutal reality. Two violent murders occur, and their only link is the lonely, clever man who had sought Espinosa out a few days earlier for help. In Southwesterly Wind, the third in this atmospheric, erotic series featuring the inimitable Inspector Espinosa, Luiz Alfredo Garcia-Roza once again "breathes fresh air into the crime novel genre" (Los Angeles Times).
