The Ignorance of Blood Summary


The Ignorance of Blood by Robert Wilson

A new psychological thriller in the Javier Falcon quartet, that includes THE HIDDEN ASSASSINS and The Blind Man of Seville.

The sweltering city of Seville is still recovering from a shocking and unsolved terrorist attack but now a spectacular car crash brings to light another threat. A dead gangster and a suitcase filled with millions in cash means the prospect of a serious Russian mafia presence on Inspector Jefe Javier Falcon's beat.

As a turf war erupts, Falcon finds himself and those closest to him personally targeted by the lethal forces suddenly unleashed. In the face of such a brutal attack, Falcon decides to retaliate with a ruthlessness that surprises him as much as his adversaries - but it will come at a tragic price.

The Ignorance of Blood Reviews


Praise for `The Ignorance of Blood':

`Wilson writes so well... brave, humane, intuitive' Literary Review

`A well-engineered plot and dense, chewy prose... skilfully woven together' Guardian

`This is a big, serious thriller with echoes of Le Carre...Wilson writes with an impressive sense of inside knowledge, both about contemporary Seville and about its criminal underbelly' Andrew Taylor, The Spectator

`The complex narrative contains several set-pieces of breathless brutality and twists and turns like a bull tormented by picadors. This is crime-writing for grown-ups' Sunday Telegraph

`The last in the fine quartet... a fitting end to an absorbing, well-written series' The Times

`A writer of sharp psychological insights.... This is the final book in Wilson's much-acclaimed Javier Falcon quartet... but such is the skill with which he has drawn us into Javier Falcon's world that he is leaving us hungry for more forays into Seville's dangerous underworld' Daily Express

`[Wilson] has given the twists and turns of a thriller a pleasingly idiosyncratic national context, as the crooks on the Costa del Sol invade Seville' TLS

`A hard-edged finale to a crime series that succeeds in being shocking and sensitive, intriguing and electrifying, all at the same time' Northern Echo

`His writing is always trenchant and pity, his characters heroic and damaged, his descriptions of Spain resonant and prescient. A great contemporary thriller' Catholic Herald
