Edith Parzefall

Author Edith Parzefallabout this book: I already had a first draft of this novel written when I decided it was time to visit the setting and meet the locals.

After visiting a street kids project in Recife, Brazil, I explored Rio de Janeiro with local guides and my friend Monika, who often had to help out as interpreter when my limited Portuguese failed me.

Naturally, major rewrites were called for when I returned to my desk, and I enjoyed every second of the hard work, reliving my travels in Brazil, a most fascinating country of contrasts. I've never invested more time, sweat and research in a novel. In return no other book has given me as much experience, insight and satisfaction. I only wish the thriller genre would have allowed me to show more of the beautiful side of Rio de Janeiro and its citizens.

Author Rosalie Skinner writes in her review: Strays of Rio explores the line between right and wrong, with realistic emotions, experiences, drama.

Author Francene Stanley calls the book "A heart-stopping adventurous glide over Rio."
