What about this character continues to fascinate you? The central character is the same, and all of the books take place in Rio de Janeiro. The books are completely independent of one another.
The reader can read the last book first, the first book last, or in any other order they choose.
What kind of research did this require? I asked a friend of mine who is a criminal lawyer to take me to one and show me how it functions. That helped add an authenticity to my character and story.
But since then I never research extensively. I usually begin with an image or situation and begin to unravel a story that I attempt to structure and use to create a plot. There was more than a year between when you published your first book and quit your academic position to write full time.

How did you manage the transition? And how does your second career compare to your first?
There was no continuity. It was a complete rupture. Although this could sometimes be stifling, it also acted as a guide. With writing fiction came an incredible freedom in creating from my imagination and personal experience, but this same liberty often left me stuck and in solitude. All your novels take place in Brazil.

What is it about Brazil that has captured your imagination? To speak of the whole of Brazil is difficult. I was born and grew up in Rio de Janeiro, and all of my books take place here. Rio, however, is not just the scenery in my novels but their very body. The city cannot be separated from the story. Because Rio is a beautiful city, it could easily have been used just as scenery. Right behind the beautiful beaches of Copacabana are favelas, shantytowns.
Citizens of Rio have accustomed themselves to this. This is only part of what makes Rio socially and economically complex. I have a great intimacy with this city; I learned how to crawl on its beaches. I grew up in Rio, but it grew along with me. All my books are considered crime and mystery, but these categories are only a comfortable way for me to explore not the question of the crime itself but the larger question of what brings someone to commit a crime.
Inspector Espinosa Mysteries: Alone in the Crowd 7 by Luiz Alfredo Garcia-Roza (2009, Hardcover)
It does seem that in Alone in the Crowd Espinosa is implicated in a crime that grows more complex in its possibly interrelated deaths. The more Espinosa investigates, the more he discovers the roots of the crime stretch back to his own childhood. The main conflict happens within Espinosa. Was this an intentional device to make the reader a participant? The book was written with that intention. I tried to make a double of Espinosa in Hugo Breno, the main suspect.
Many twists and turns lead to a page-turning confrontation. While the ending is satisfying, it also leaves unanswered questions.

How would you respond to a frustrated reader who expects a tightly wrapped conclusion? If I had related a story in which I explained everything, I would have created a passive reader and underestimated his intelligence. There are always matters left unexplained, even if motivations are clear. The feeling a reader may have that something was not completed is exactly the point.
