His daughter Melina Gage Ratcliffe says he died Friday evening at his home in Ocala, Fla., from pancreatic cancer. He had been diagnosed three months ago.

Gage spent years living in Brazil and set his novels there. The books featured Chief Inspector Mario Silva.

There were six books in the series, and a seventh, "The Ways of Evil Men" is scheduled to be published early next year.

His daughter says Gage will be cremated and his ashes spread over the ocean off Brazil.
