Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A new psychological thriller featuring Javier Falcon of the Seville Police whom we met in The Blind Man of Seville and The Silent and the Damned. This confirms his brilliance that won him the highest accolade from the Crime Writers Association, the Gold Dagger for A Small Death in Lisbon. I’m highlighting all this so you are aware that here is a master of his genre. This is not a page-turning blockbuster but a highly engrossing, beautifully written, tense tale of detection in an intriguing location. I think the whole series is excellent.

Similar this month: Stella Rimington.
Comparison: Michael Dibdin, Andrea Camilleri, Barbara Nadel.

Synopsis

The Hidden Assassins by Robert Wilson

As Inspector Jefe Javier Falcon investigates a faceless corpse unearthed on a municipal dump, Seville is rocked by a massive explosion. An apartment block is destroyed, and when it's discovered that its basement housed a mosque everybody's terrorist fears are confirmed.

Panic sweeps the city, more bodies are dragged from rubble, the climate of fear infects everyone and terror invades the domestic life of flamboyant judge Calderon and the troubled mind of Consuelo, Falcon's one-time lover.

With the media and political pressure intensifying, Falcon realizes all is not as it appears. But as he comes close to cracking a conspiracy, he discovers an even more terrifying plot – and the race is on to prevent a catastrophe far beyond Spain's borders.
