A world named Saõ Paulo is the setting for one of the most intricately layered, page-turning stories I've read in years. It's strongly character-driven, though Ramon Espejo, the principal character, is a hard man to like. A Mexican migrant to a distant planet, Espejo is a hardscrabble prospector, dividing his time between long trips into the hills, and short visits in town, continuing a desultory affair with a lover who can only put up with him for the aforementioned short periods.

From official release/information:

From publicity material: A man awakens in the dark, naked, incapable of seeing or hearing. He can't even remember his name. Then comes light, and with it revelation.... He is Ramon Espejo, a poor, exploited prospector who was a nonentity on Earth, and remains a nonentity on the planet of Sao Paulo, where he ekes out a living searching for minerals in uncharted mountain ranges. Slowly, some of his memories begin to return. A dead man. A bloody knife. A desperate run, away from the law, and from the Enye, the planet's mysterious alien overseers.

Ramon knows he is being hunted. And he's about to discover that he's a hunter, as well. And the hunt--in both directions--involes a battle between species more powerful and more ruthless than he ever imagined.
