Description

Robert Wilson is back with the follow-up to his sensational thriller, The Blind Man of Seville. Javier Falcón has been through therapy and is in the process of breaking free of the psychological damage sustained during his last major investigation. Called to the scene of a suspicious suicide in a wealthy neighborhood on the outskirts of Seville, he begins to investigate a case with no solid evidence when suddenly, in quick succession, two more suicides occur-one of them a fellow police officer in the sex crimes unit. Left to discover what made life so unbearable for these victims, Falcón's task is to find the connection among the suicides. Or were they, in fact, murdered?
