A frustrated publisher receives a mysterious angst-ridden manuscript: ‘a friend’ must send it in installments; its contents would put the author in danger.
As he pieces together the story, he learns that the author is the wife of one of the two Martelli brothers – gangsters who dominate a small town in the Brazilian interior. Surely her dark outpourings are a cry for help?
