Dry Season Summary

Dry Season by Dan Smith

On the banks of a sprawling Brazilian river lies Sao Tiago - a small town without a conscience, forsaken by its people and by God - the perfect place for a fallen priest to escape his past. Sam whiles away his time drinking and fishing, but when one bloody night he helps a dying stranger, he feels a change is coming. Soon Sam catches the attention of the dead man's employer, the formidable Catarina Da Silva whose hypnotic gaze he has trouble resisting. But little does he know that in a place where life is cheap, love can be deadly. Trapped in Da Silva's dangerous web, Sam finds himself plummeting towards Sao Tiago's dark heart. And as the heavens finally open, he must face his past if he is to find redemption...
