The powerful true-life story of a Brazilian boy who could have been a fisherman but instead became the biggest professional killer known to the world. Without moralising about mass murderer, The Name of Death attempts to show how such a career can be not so very different from other ordinary working lives. The portrait that emerges in this riveting narrative, based on seven years of phone conversations between Cavalcanti and Santana, is not only that of a man but also that of a country.
