Product description

Review

‘First rate…Wilson at his best, a taut, gripping narrative and a sensitive study of the tormented detective.’ Sunday Telegraph

‘Wilson’s plotting is intricate, his detective endearingly human, Seville a captivating venue. This is crime fiction of high order.’ The Times

‘Its plotting is persuasive, its characterisation shrewd.’ Literary Review

‘Wilson is a fine crime writer, and has created a character in the best traditions of Chandler.’ Irish Examiner

Synopsis

The powerful second psychological thriller featuring Javier Falcon, the complex detective from 'The Blind Man of Seville'. At seven years old, Mario Vega faces a terrible tragedy -- his parents are dead in an apparent suicide pact. But Inspector Javier Falcon has his doubts. In the brutal heat of a Seville summer, he dissects the disturbing life of the boy's father, Rafael Vega. His investigation draws threats from the Russian mafia whose corruption reaches deep into the city. He questions a creative American couple with a destructive past and uncovers the misery of a famous actor whose only son is in prison for an appalling crime. More suicides follow and one of them is a senior policeman. As a forest fire rages through the hills above the city Falcon must sweat out the truth that connects it all -- and find the final secret in the dark heart of Vega's life.
