Review

I enjoyed the heck out of this book! A fast-pace, smooth storytelling, and characters that you won't soon forget. Underneath the Palms of Rio is a great story, plain and simple. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!  - Dani Amore, author of the Killing League and Death by Sarcasm

The first novel I've read in a long time, Underneath the Palms of Rio is a beautifully written story of corruption, and conflict, benevolence and perseverance set against the captivating and exotic setting of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The characters are very involving, the action fast-paced, and the suspense extremely addictive.

A great read that I highly recommend to anyone!

Collier brings us another exciting crime novel. A real page turner, Underneath the Palms of Rio keeps you on bated breath. The world Collier creates feels alive. It is easy to become emotionally involved with Ava and Cameron. This book is a taught, sexy thriller with an incredible climax.

I loved this book from the start till the end! I have to say, I thought that crimi novels weren't really my thing; but this book proved me wrong. The first intriguing thing about this book is certainly the title, which sounds exotic and catchy. The author created a very realistic mood setting of the story, and it reads like a movie. If you are looking for a great crimi page-turner, this is it! Definitely worth the money.

I enjoyed Brandon Collier's newest book Underneath the Palms of Rio. He did a great job of illustrating the many characters in the book, including the books not so hidden character Brazil. Good read, I definitely recommend someone who enjoys a investigative thriller to buy this book.

This book is extremely well written, and if you like murder mysteries and international intrigue, you will certainly get your money's worth here. Cameron Carter has a certain Sam Spade feel to him, and I liked that. It reminded me of the Aruba murder mystery, so it had modern relevance. I was a bit thrown out of the story by the gore and violence toward women. That is not my cup of tea, but it was certainly well written, so if you like that kind of story, you will definitely like this one.

You know me. I'm usually a fang and magic casting reader, but I siezed the opportunity to read this book when it was offered by the author.

It ended up being a fun read that didn't take itself too serious.

The two main charaters were interesting. Cameron is a detective that travels to Rio after being put on suspension. Ava is a federal agent assigned to Rio. There's some attraction there, which was fun. They end up working together on an exciting mystery.

Overall, I'd read more from this author! Great job.

"Underneath the Palms of Rio" grabs the reader's attention from the very first page, making it difficult to put it down!

A serial killer is murdering American tourists in Rio de Janeiro and he thinks he is unstoppable but he didn't count on American agent Ava Monroe. She teams up with American detective Cameron Carter and together they become immersed in the underbelly of society dealing with gangs and dirty cops. In the midst of all this, a love story ensues between Monroe and Carter. Author Brandon Collier weaves an action-packed story that will pique your interest throughout the story. Believable characters, good dialogue and a fast-paced story line - everything you want in a good book!
