We're very sorry to report that Leighton Gage has passed away. In addition to writing the wonderful Chief Inspector Mario Silva series set in Brazil, Leighton was a kind and generous man. We'll miss him.
We at Murder is Everywhere are leaving the stage dark today in honor of the memory of our dear colleague, mentor and friend Leighton Gage who passed away yesterday. This is the announcement of his passing by his daughter, Melina Gage Ratcliffe:
"My mother, my sisters and I are devastated to announce the passing of our father, Leighton Gage. Thank you friends and family for all the love and support.
A message from Eide Gage:
'My Dearest Friends,
The light of my life was extinguished last night.
Leight passed to eternity peacefully in his sleep.
Should we cry because he died or smile because he lived?'"
Sunday...From all of us at Murder Is Everywhere...
