Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Apart from being a first-rate procedural thriller . . . The Hidden Assassins is a soul-searing exploration of how the mindless embrace of paranoia by individuals and society can be nearly as damaging as an actual attack."—The News & Observer (Raleigh, NC) 

 

As Inspector Jefe Javier Falcón investigates the case of a faceless corpse, the beautiful city of Seville is rocked by a massive explosion. The discovery of a mosque in the basement of a devastated apartment building confirms everybodys fears of terrorism, and panic sweeps the city. But as the media interest and political pressure intensify, Falcón begins to suspect that an even more terrifying discovery awaits.

"The third Falcón thriller once again demonstrates that few writers—in any genre—can match Wilsons depth of character and plot or his evocation of place and of history."—The Boston Globe

"Falcón is a superbly drawn character who fascinates . . . This is suspenseful storytelling at its best."—Deseret Morning News

 

ROBERT WILSON is the author of eight novels, including A Small Death in Lisbon, which won the Gold Dagger Award for Best Crime Novel of the Year. He lives in Portugal and Oxford, England.
