Product description

"A fast-paced, tightly plotted action/crime thriller that will appeal to anyone who enjoys Lee Child, Peter James, Tom Rob Smith, or who liked the film City of God. An impressive debut." - The i newspaper"I could taste the dust, smell the smoke and feel the hairs rise on the back of my neck as tensions grew... a genuinely compelling story. Five Stars." - The Love Books GroupOn the run from unjust court-martial back home, a young British soldier gets robbed and shot on Copacabana Beach. The bullet in Jake's head should have been fatal, but miraculously, it saves him from a previously undetected condition that soon would have killed him.Jake doesn't believe in fate, nor does he feel he owes anything to anybody, but he does hate injustice. Vilson, the teenage favela kid who fired the bullet, is a victim of injustice, in a corner with a corrupt cop and a sadistic drug-lord after his blood.With a turf war erupting in Vilson's favela, fear stalks every narrow alleyway, and anyone dragged up to the notorious Burning Hill had better hope they're dead before they get there. But it's not just fear that shapes life in the favela, belief is also powerful, able to both save and destroy.The Burning Hill is about the power of belief and one man's desire for justice at any cost.Gritty, hard-hitting and utterly compulsive, this is a book that has you wanting to head straight back to page one straight after turning the last page. Inked Book ReviewsI LOVE books that pull you in so deeply, and this is a story that does exactly that - every location, the heat, the dust, the smells, the tastes - I was living this story. Not to mention the completely compelling plot that made it so I could not put this book down. Magnolia Reads ReviewsI've never read a book in which the life/corruption in Brazil was so vividly explained, and this story will be with me for a long time.'
