Publisher's Summary

In the wake of a terrorist attack on Seville, Inspector Jefe Javier Falcón is determined to fulfil his promise that he'll bring the perpetrators to justice. The violent death of a gangster provides evidence implicating the Russian mafia, but pitches Falcón straight 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 pressure. His best friend, who's spying for the Spanish government, reveals he is being blackmailed by Islamist extremists and Falcón's own lover suffers a mother's worst nightmare. Confronted by such fanaticism and brutality, Falcón realises that only the most ruthless retaliation will work. But there is a terrible price to pay...

One of the best...

Robert Wilson is a very good writer. And he writes a very good book - one of the best of this genre that I have read. His characters are finely drawn with economy and depth. He understands people, their motivations, and how they can react in the face of disparate levels of stress. His detailed development of plot is masterful - marked by a credible combination of circumstance and random complication. This is a great story and read with perfect pitch by Sean Barrett. Thoughtful detective/thriller afficionados will not go wrong with this one. It's a gem. Mike Connelly. watch out!

The smartest crime fiction writer

Robert Wilson's crime/terrorist fiction is so well researched and well written it is hard to tell from non-fiction. I like fiction to be believable and savvy and Wilson writes about crime and terror in Spain and Morocco with flair and knowledge about what is happening in both countries. His Inspector Falcon is flawed and very human, but like all good cops is driven to find the answers and solve the crime. Robert Wilson is one of the very best writers in any genre.
