9780007117840: Silent And The Damned

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.

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
