: Gold Dagger award-winner Robert Wilson introduces the Spanish detective Javier Falcon in a gripping tale of grisly murder that leads him to the seamy side of his famous father's life. It is Semana Santa - Holy week in Seville - and a most unholy sight awaits homicide detective Javier Falcon. A leading restaurateur has been found dead in his apartment, bound and gagged before a TV screen. Unable to close his eyes because the killer had removed his eyelids, his struggles to avoid the pictures flickering before him have caused terrible injuries. With each new development in the case, with each new victim, the killer demonstrates an uncanny ability to delve into the darkest secrets of his prey - and into Falcon's own family history. The professional, dispassionate facade Falcon has constructed begins to disintegrate as he, too, is forced to confront the unimaginable.
