Botafogo, a Portuguese word meaning "to set fire", Botafogo is also a neighbourhood that features prominently in this novel, and was once home to one of Rio de Janeiro's most famous football teams: Botafogo de Futebol e Regatas. Drugs, corruption, murder, deceit, passion, and hate - all rolled into one in Glen Albert Phillips' latest novel, set in Rio de Janeiro. This is a story of two worlds, told through a dozen lives in a city of fire: rich and poor, old and young, peaceful and violent, loving and deceitful, black and white, good and evil. Rio de Janeiro, with its stunning geographical setting, its diversity of races and religious beliefs, and its explosive mix of rich alongside poor, is indeed a place to set fire.
