On the banks of a sprawling Brazilian river lies São Tiago - the perfect place for
a fallen priest to escape his past and care for nothing. But when Sam chooses to
help a stranger who lies bleeding on a dirt floor, he sets in motion a dangerous
chain of events.
Falling under the gaze of the dead man’s employer, Sam’s quiet life turns to one
of manipulation and murder, and as the long dry season stretches out ahead, he must
face his past if he is to find redemption in a town without a soul.
Dan’s debut novel Dry Season draws on some of the experiences he had while living in Brazil - the places, people and events in the book are inspired by his time there. Visit these galleries to find some photographs of Santa Terezinha, some images of the plantation where he lived, and some portraits of one or two of the people he knew.
