The final psychological thriller in the Javier Falcon quartet, that includes 'The Hidden Assassins' and 'The Blind Man of Seville.' A spectacular car crash in the sweltering Seville summer accidentally brings to light a suitcase filled with millions in cash - and the prospect of a serious mafia presence on Inspector Jefe Javier Falcón's beat. As a turf war erupts, Falcón finds himself and those closest to him personally targeted by the lethal forces suddenly unleashed. In the face of attack, Falcón decides to retaliate with a ruthlessness that surprises him as much as his adversaries. But it will come at a tragic price.

The last chapter in Javier Falcón’s series, at last!

To be honest, I´m glad I won’t have to read another crime novel of Falcón, even more in the case of Consuelo Jimenez, whom I always thought had an overrated role in the series. But the main reason I’m glad is because I find Falcón a very boring main character. Too political correct and too, I don’t know how to put it... perhaps, Spanish for my Latino way of seeing things.
The book will close a circle that started with “The Blind Man of Seville”, so DO NOT think that you can read “The Ignorance of Blood” and understand the amalgam of small plots that, eventually, will converge into a few resolved mysteries. So the right way to go with this series is to start from the beginning.
I’ve always been a big fan of Robert Wilson and I think he is one of those writers that are underrated in our crime fiction world. He is not always easy to read because he brings evilness we don’t want to know about, the one that can be living in the house of your neighbor or even in your own family, but he is superb when it comes to create intelligent plots. And it is because of that that I’ll give “The ignorance of Blood” just four stars instead of the usual five I give Wilson’s books. I’d to compromise more than I’m used to when it comes to Robert Wilson and he leaves a few loose ends. But that’s the least you can ask for trying to achieve such a crime fiction saga that started with “The Blind Man of Seville”

What’s next? Hopefully a character that is more charismatic, like Zé Coelho in “A small Death in Lisbon” or even, Karl Voss in “The Company of Strangers”
