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 is a "Killer" crime novel. The setting is Rio during the Carnival season. A serial killer is on the loose killing tourists and students. In the Prologue we catch of glimpse of him in action. He slips through the thick crowded alleyways of Rio during Carnival and goes about his business with a very cool like demeanor. The evil in this character is almost palatable. The characters in this crime thriller are believable and the investigators have their own agendas as in real life. Cameron--the detective on vacation in Rio--and Ava Monroe the undercover investigator hired from the outside meet up on the case. I won't give away their relationship, but sparks do fly. Watch out! This is a fast paced, wild read and not one you will want to put down. All I can say is Read It!

Against the colorful background of Rio de Janeiro, agent Ava Monroe, huanted by her past, is called in to solve the grissly murders of three American tourists. With a gang war breaking out in the streets, agent Monroe and her vacationing sidekick Cameron Carter must work with a corrupt police force to end a murder spree before the killer strikes again.

Under the Palms of Rio is a gritty, fast paced murder mystery in which the author manages to evoke a taste of Brazil to produce a unique story. A fine effort well worth reading.
