9780007202959: The Ignorance of Blood

As a sweltering Seville recovers from the shock of a terrorist attack, Inspector Jefe Javier Falcón is struggling to find the bombers. The death of a gangster in a spectacular car crash offers vital evidence implicating the Russian mafia in his investigation, but it pitches Falcón into the heart of a turf war over prostitution and drugs. Now the target of vicious hoods, Falcón finds those closest to him are also coming under intolerable pressure: his best friend, who’s spying for the Spanish government, reveals that he is being blackmailed by Islamist extremists, and Falcón’s own lover suffers a mother’s worst nightmare. He might be able to bring the perpetrators of the bombing to justice, but there will be a devastating price to pay.

From the Inside Flap:

In the wake of a terrorist attack on Seville, Inspector Jefe Javier Falcon is determined to fulfil his promise to its citizens – that he’ll bring the real perpetrators to justice. The violent death of a gangster provides evidence implicating the Russian mafia in the outrage, but throws Falcon into the heart of a turf war over prostitution and drugs.

Now the target of vicious hoods, Falcon finds those closest to him are also coming under intolerable pressure. His best friend, who’s spying for the Spanish government, reveals he is being blackmailed by Islamist extremists, and Falcon’s own lover suffers a mother’s worst nightmare.

Confronted by such fanaticism and brutality, Falcon realizes that only the most ruthless retaliation will work. But there is a terrible price to pay...
