    One thought on “The Ways of Evil Men”

    1. It was with much sadness that I read the final book written by Leighton Gage who left us in 2013 This is the seventh in the series and he left the principal character Mario Silva poised for some happiness in his personal life It s a shame we won t be able to see where this would have gone This is another page turning thriller in which an entire tribe is poisoned for their land There s plenty going on besides the main plot and Gage keeps lots of surprises until the end We have murder adultery gre [...]

    2. The title of Leighton Gage s last book may be The Ways of Evil Men, but Rudyard Kipling said The female of the species is deadly than the male Gage s final Mario Silva investigation brings back all the beloved team But, this time, he includes an unusual group of powerful women Some of those women instigate the investigation some support Silva s work and some support a powerful group of landowners I may take a different view of this book than some other reviewers I see it as a sign of Gage s res [...]

    3. I must begin by saying that I opened up this book with very mixed emotions Not because I didn t expect to like the writing far from it I have loved each of the books by Mr Gage, and this was probably the best of them all but because I knew it would the last by this wonderful writer, who passed away almost exactly a year ago, in July of 2013 I have loved each of his books, and, beyond that, considered him a friend We had communicated often, about his books and about Brazil, the setting for each o [...]

    4. I received an ARC of The Ways of Evil Men through Thank you SOHO Crime While I have read 5 of the previous 6 books in the Mario Silva series, I almost didn t want to read this one, knowing that Leighton Gage had recently died and this wouldn t be just the most recent book in the series, but the LAST book of the seriesBut I read it anyway just couldn t help myself It s really a 4.5 star book to me As I ve come to expect from Leighton Gage, the characters were well developed, interesting and ran t [...]

    5. I won this print through a contest site and agreed to give it an honest review Leighton Gage was an unknown author to me and I m glad I won his book Strange things are going on in the remote jungle of Brazil There are only 41 Anwa tribe left, they can t seem to grow in numbers, but as a man and his son return to the village, their tribe is all dead, but it s only the beginning of the darkest crime of the evils of man.

    6. Leighton Gage, who died in 2013, was an author of crime fiction best known for his Chief Inspector Mario Silva novels set in Brazil The Ways of Evil Men is his seventh and last novel, published posthumously Breezy, concise, Gage s works are intriguing mysteries His latest book is written along the same lines If you ve never read any of his books, try one You ll enjoy it.

    7. IMO, this is the best of the seven books in this series or at least it s the one I enjoyed the most Every time I put it down to do something else, I found I was back reading a few minutes later It s sad that Gage died so young.Good characters along with a new location and very interesting, innovative ways of murder.

    8. This was Leighton Gage s last book before he died It s a heart rendering story of a tribe in the that was poisoned except for a father and son who were out hunting There s plenty of action and Leighton solves Silva s problems While Silva solves everyone else s It s a two day book read, and if you read his other books, it s a fantastic read RIP Leighton.

    9. Sadly, this is the last book for Leighton Gage as he passed away in 2013 after writing this one As all the others, this book was excellently written The characters were well drawn and the plot was very engaging Lots of twists and turns made the book unputdownable Gage is a master storyteller and this one did not disappoint The theme was racism and we received a lot of information about the Awana Tribe of the in Brazil The author puts a lot of himself into the character of Mario Silva and shows h [...]

    10. Reading The Ways of Evil Men was bittersweet I have been a tremendous fan of the Chief Inspector Mario Silva books since the very first one, Blood of the Wicked But with author Leighton Gage s death due to pancreatic cancer in 2013, it was tough knowing that this is the last book in a truly remarkable series Each book is a seamless blend of police procedural, character study, and social commentary I can think of no other series in crime fiction that gives such a heartfelt and unflinching portrai [...]

    13. This is one book I found impossible to close for the night until I d read every line What a setting and what a plot Gage so perfectly describes the nether regions of a remote Brazilian state that one can all but feel the heat and drenching perspiration that is impossible to escape As is said a visitor does not drink water for pleasure but for survival Truth be told there are precious few visitors save for Jade Calmon, the official tribe relations agent Twice a year she visits the Awana tribe who [...]

    14. What an intriguing story Set in the rain forests of Bra, this book tells a tale of genocide, thirty nine of an Indian tribe s forty one members are dead, one man and his young son survived as they were out hunting at the time I found this book disturbing genocide does that to me The stark portrayal of the town s population, the rampant corruption and greed, the division between wealthy and impoverished is unnerving Racism is pervasive When Amati, the tribe s last remaining adult, is framed for t [...]

    15. I don t usually like to read books that have the same character in them, this book apparently is part of a series of tales which include Chief Inspector Mario Silva of the Brazilian police force Now I may have to go look for others, because I liked his character And Leighton Gage, the author, has passed away, so I would guess this is it for Silva s character The story starts when 39 people belonging to an Indian tribe in the Brazilian rainforest die by poisoning, leaving only 2 survivors Jade Ca [...]

    16. THE WAYS OF EVIL MEN 2014 Leighton CageHere s the latest police procedural featuring Mario Silva, set in Brazil This time, he is charged with finding and bringing to justice the man or men responsible for killing off 39 primitive Indians from the interior of the rain forest The likely suspects are the already land rich men of the nearest village Killing off these Indians will essentially wipe out the tribe and put their reservation up for grabs to the interested parties for exploitation These ad [...]

    17. I have loved this series from the beginning and have valued the time Leighton spent doing events at our store The Mystery Group enjoyed his company immensely, as well as that of his wife Eide It s really sad to think there will be no books from his handFinished the book this evening probably of a 4 1 2 star read It s vintage Leighton Gage without a doubt I loved the plot turn on the plight fate of one of Brazil s indigenous tribes I also think that Leighton has created truly horrid female cha [...]

    18. A shame this is his last book I have enjoyed the series very much The information he provided about police procedures, politics, attitudes and corruption in Brazil was great and informative The other part of his novels which fascinated me was his approach to the dark side of crime He did so by not holding back on his descriptions of the reality of crime scenes and resulting death.This book is not as dark as previous ones and I also found it predictable The police procedure was interesting and so [...]

    19. My low rating probably reflects my lack of interest in the genre than anything particular this novel or Gage s writing style.That said, I found the story simple The prose was nonexistent and offered nothing so savory as to warrant a re reading or memorization of a line The pacing was good, though I felt the ending dragged with many unnecessary interviews that could have all been summed up in a sentence or two.All in all it wasn t a terrible read I don t mind having spent the time reading this w [...]

    20. I received this as a Giveaway to review I wish I had known that this story had reoccuring characters bc I feel at a disadvantage in writing this review not having all the background as other readers did With that in mind, I did like this book It was a fairly quick read because the story kept pulling me back to it I guess in my mind I know this is a work of fiction but I also know it could be playing out as we speak Greed does corrupt and a lack of understanding for other cultures can be very, ve [...]

    21. An entire tribe of Indians in the are dead There are two survivors Soon after one of the locals in town is murdered and this lone survivor is accused The town turns against him and carries out an unspeakable act The story takes you into each of the lives of those who live in the town and those outside who have come to solve this mystery Why did this tribe die and how is it all connected to everyone in town This is a very fascinating series of events spurned by greed ad jealousy.

    22. I enjoyed this book very much It was a very sad story at the same time it was a thriller The author s note really makes you think about what s happening to indigenous people everywhere I really like Chief Inspector Silva and would definitely read of his cases I could feel the sweltering heat from the rain forest and just feel those buzzing flies on me I would love to visit the rain forest someday I bet it is beautiful as well as dangerous.

    23. I felt that this book was not quiet as good as some of the author s other novels Sometimes when an author is trying to convey a political message, this becomes important to him or her than the story itself In this book, we know who the good guys are, and who the bad guys are There is no gray in between people I happen to sympatise with the message, but I felt that it was given importance than creating a good plot.

    24. The complexity of the storyline in this solidly plotted police procedural together with several credible paths of misdirection make this one of the better books in this already very good series sadly, it will also be the last as the author died following writing it and prior to its publication Read our full review, here mysteriousreviews myst

    25. I received a free copy of The Ways of Evil Men through First Reads This was the first Mario Silva novel that I have read I especially enjoyed setting on the frontier The story kept me reading I finished the book in two days and the length seemed about right Long enough for twists and turn in the story line, but not so long that I started getting impatient.

    26. Book presents interesting picture of Wild West aspects of rainforest Brazil including the intense prejudices against the Indians It also highlights environmental issues dangers of gold mining using mercury and the extensive harvesting of hardwoods Inspector Silva is a very satisfying character reminding me of Louise Penny s Inspector Gamache.

    27. The loss of Leighton Gage to the writing world is bigI m a big fan of Mario Silva novels and love the way that he brings to life the way s of Brazilian life.Leighton Gage will be missed in his stile of writing and his talent of bringing his life in Brazil to booksRIP Mr Gage, you will be missed big time

    28. I hadn t heard of the Mario Silva mysteries before, but I really enjoyed this one I recieved this as an ARC at ALA 2013 and I found the mystery compelling and well written The characters were interesting and I liked that it was set in the frontier, so to speak, of Brazil Well done.

    29. unusual setting remote Brazilian jungle town filled run by some awful characters Good depiction of serious social issues that don t get much attention First of Gage s books that I have read, but I plan to read .

    30. Shows how greed and jealousy can corrupt a whole town The death of a whole village of natives leads to an investigation in the far reaches of Brazil The cops that come to investigate find a lot of corruption and it makes it tough for them to get to the truth.
