“Arnold has crafted a thrilling page-turner while delving into topics that often bypass Brazil’s mainstream media...The Third Bank of the River ultimately stands out as an important book for Americans looking to better understand the glorious and troubled nation to their south ― in all its complexity." ―Bruno Garcez, San Francisco Chronicle
"[A] journalistic account of the rush to develop the Amazon rainforest and its cost in human lives...[Arnold] draws much-needed attention to crime without punishment in a remote―but not invisible―part of the world."―Kirkus Reviews
"Arnold handles all of the narrative strands expertly and shows a keen eye for detail...The reader leaves with a newfound understanding of the diversity, complexity, and corruption to be found in the modern Amazon."―Publishers Weekly
