About the book

Its Semana Santa in Seville, the Easter week of passion and processions. A leading restaurateur is found bound, gagged and dead in front of his TV. The self-inflicted wounds tell of the mans struggle to avoid the unendurable images hes been forced to watch. When confronted by this horrific scene the normally dispassionate homicide detective Javier Falcn is inexplicably afraid. What could be so terrible?

The investigation into the victims turbulent life sends Falcn trawling through his own past and the ferociously candid journals of his late father, a world-famous artist. Painful revelations churn up Falcns unreliable memory and more killings push him to the edge of terrifying truth. And he realizes that this is not just a hunt for the all-seeing killer who knows his victims secret lives but also the search for Falcns missing heart.

From the Gold Dagger award-winning author of A Small Death in Lisbon, a novel that combines the tension of a psychological thriller with the emotional intensity of a literary tour de force.
