Publisher's Summary

As Inspector Jefe Javier Falcón investigates a mutilated, faceless corpse unearthed on the municipal dump, the beautiful city of Seville is rocked by a massive explosion which devastates an apartment building and a nearby kindergarten. When it's discovered that there was a mosque in the basement, everybody's terrorist fears are confirmed. The high summer heat tightens its grip. Panic sweeps the city and the region is on red alert. More bodies are dragged from the rubble and terror invades the domestic life of flamboyant judge Calderón and the troubled mind of wealthy Consuelo.
With the media and political pressure intensifying Falcón realises that all is not as it appears. But just as he comes close to cracking the conspiracy, he makes the most terrifying discovery of all. And the race is on to prevent a major catastrophe far beyond Spain's borders.

It grows on you

This book starts slowly but rapidly grows on you, by the end you can't put it down. Set in Spain, it is well written well read and gives thoroughly realistic and quite frightening perspective of the impact of terrorism.

Exceptionally good.

Beautifully written. The interlaced plots draw the reader in until it is almost impossible to "put" this book down. The narrator is exceptionally good.
