From the good Brazilian writer, an unique story of greed, insanity, and a dispute among strong households over land at the cocoa-rich coast of Bahia

The siren music of the plush, cocoa-growing forests of Bahia lures them all—the adventurers, the assassins, the gamblers, the courageous and gorgeous ladies. it isn't a gradual track, yet a tune of greed, insanity, and blood. it's a music that grants riches untold, or demise for the cost of a swig of rum . . . a track so much can't resist—until it truly is too late—not Margot, the golden blond prostitute who comes for romance; no longer Cabral, the unscrupulous legal professional who works for one of many Cacao “colonels”; and never Juca, whose ruthless quest to harvest the jungle’s harvest crops the seeds of his personal destruction.
