A new thriller set in Spain from the Gold Dagger winning author of 'A Small Death In Lisbon', introducing Detective Inspector Javier Falcon.
Semana Santa - Holy Week in Seville, and a most unholy sight awaits homicide detective Javier Flacon. A leading restaurateur has been found dead in his apartment, bound and gagged before a TV screen. Unable to close his eyes because the killer had removed his eyelids, his struggles to avoid the pictures flickering before him have caused terrible injuries. What unbearable images of horror had the killer forced him to confront?
With each new development in the case, with each new victim, the killer demonstrates an uncanny ability to delve into the darkest secrets of his prey - and into Falcon's own family history. The professional, dispassionate facade Falcon has constructed begins to disintegrate as he, too, is forced to confront the unimaginable.
