Summary:

Nemesis is the story of an ordinary man who became the king of the largest slum in Rio, the head of a drug cartel, and perhaps Brazil's most wanted criminal. It's a gripping tale of gold-hunters and evangelical pastors, bent police and rich-kid addicts, quixotic politicians and drug lords with math degrees. Traversing through rain forests and high-security prisons, filthy slums and glittering shopping malls, this is also the story of how change came to Brazil. Of a country's journey into the global spotlight, and the battle for the beautiful but damned city of Rio, as it struggles to break free from a tangled web of corruption, violence, drugs, and poverty.

    This book tries to be interesting. The story and the characters might be interesting but the way it's written is not good, not organized, boring and doesn't really tells anything. Add a really bad narration, with zero charisma, (sounds like he is not interested in this book as well) and you get a waste of time and money.
