    1. Perseguido (Inspector Espinosa #5) - Luiz Alfredo Garcia-Roza | Cia das Letras, 2001, 218 páginas | Lido de 16/02/17 a 17/02/17 | Nota 4 em 5SINOPSEO psiquiatra de um hospital universitário sente-se perseguido por um jovem paciente. O sentimento de perseguição aumenta a cada dia e passa a ser vivido por outras pessoas ligadas ao médico. Misteriosamente, o paciente desaparece e, depois de alguns meses, é dado como morto.A essa morte seguem-se outras, sem que se possa determinar quem está s [...]


    2. I've been a big fan of the author, and have read all of his other books. This is the first one that was unsatisfying. Spoiler: My favorite mystery of all time, Michael Dibdin's "Dead Lagoon" also leaves parts of its core mystery unsolved, but it is still satisfying. So having everything neatly wrapped-up by the end is not a requirement. But we never really find out what was going on through the whole book, and when you have an omnicient narrator, that's not acceptable. We hear from "Lucas" early [...]


    3. I picked this up off a friend's book swap pile only because the author is Brazilian, and I don't think I've ever read a Brazilian author. It's a fantastic, suspenseful thriller about a bookish police chief who gets challenged by a strange psychologist and his obsession with one of his patients. I can't reveal too much without giving anything away, but I read this on one busride between Gyeongju and Incheon. I was on the edge of my bus-seat the whole time and almost jumped out of my (bus) seat on [...]


    4. Um dos melhores da série. Qual é a fronteira entre a sanidade e a loucura? Cada vez mais denso e a afastar-se do tipo de história (e diálogos) dos primeiros livros. Prova que GR é capaz de se mexer em qualquer cenário e Espinosa continua imbatível.


    5. Overall I enjoy the Espinosa series but this book did not cut it for me. I am sorry but not solving the case is kind of pointless for a crime detective novel.


    6. I've worked with some wonderfully astute Psychiatrists and some more suited to sheep farming or antique collecting; but none as inept and poorly portrayed as the main character in this Inspector Espinosa novel. this is the 4th Garcia-Roza novel I have read in this series and so far; Inspector Sepinosa has failed to solve a single crime; he does quite a lot of musing; some introspection; and appears to spend his waking hours planning his next meal or eating it. I suppose there is some interest in [...]

    8. Another bizarre plot in the 5th of the Inspector Espinosa series set in Rio de Janeiro.[return][return]A psychiatrist becomes convinced that he is being stalked by a patient. Yet, as the plot unfolds, it isn't clear just who is being stalked and exactly what is happening to the psyciatrist and his family. Espisoa eventually becomes involved in the increasingly bizarre story; he is not the major figure in the stroy but more of a bystander, tangential to the main plot line.[return][return]Very imp [...]


    9. Another weird psychological thriller that keeps you turning the pages and then is not really resolved clearly at the end. Garcia-Roza could probably write a thriller about paint drying but the ending would surely be fuzzy. I enjoy the character of Espinoza, the book loving detective, who is the honest cop and seems the most unlikely cop. He thinks too much and so does the author. At the end we still don't know who killed who. I guess some cases are just that way.


    10. One of my favorite crime fiction writers and definitely my favorite contemporary Brazilian, there's no question I'm a big fan of Garcia-Roza and his main lead character, detective/police officer Espinosa. Pursuit is a decent book, not one of his best, but it's still a quick entertaining read, as all crime-fiction books should be.


    11. Wasn't my favorite of the ones I've read so far in this series. I spent too much time in the head of a deranged murderer (creepy) and didn't get to know other characters very well. Still, I enjoyed it because the plot was interesting and, besides, I've committed to the long haul with detective Espinosa!


    12. I wish there was a 2.5 stars position. It's not that I didn't like it. It's just that it wasn't ultimately that interesting or that satisfying. There was a story there that I wanted to know more about (the daughters, the mother) but I never did find out enough to make it worth the read.


    13. Um psiquiatra se vê ameaçado por um paciente, que acaba desaparecendo e o médico passa a ser suspeito. O livro prende a atenção, consegue manter um bom clima de suspense o tempo todo, mas acabei me decepcionando com o final.


    14. I like that this series is set in Brazil, but the totally convoluted plot in this was not satisfying, when all is said and done


    15. I doubt I'll read anymore of this series. Garcia-Roza is an excellent writer, and the books are very suspenseful, but the endings are a rea let down for me.


    16. Excelente policial, cheio de mind games e dissimulações, que tem ainda a vantagem de nos transportar para as ruas de Copacabana e Ipanema.
