The Blind Man of Seville
The first in Robert Wilson's Seville series, featuring the tortured detective Javier Falcon.
Praise for The Blind Man of Seville 'Crime writing at its very best, but it is also something more. It observes no limits, it begs no one's pardon. It excites, it surprises and it satisfies.This is a fine important novel' Literary Review 'Admirably paced and enthrallingly elaborate' Sunday Times 'The Blind Man of Seville is an ingenious and compelling thriller' Daily Telegraph 'This is powerful evocative stuff' Observer 'As an evocation of the emotional labyrinth of postwar Tangiers and as a tale of artistic drift, it's rather brilliant -- a detective story Paul Bowles never wrote' Guardian A wonderful, if dark and disturbing, literary detective novel' Time Out 'To call Robert Wilson's 'The Blind Man of Seville' a thriller is to do a grave injustice to an utterly stunning achievement.The central narrative of the detective on the verge of a nervous breakdown is a psychological thriller of real profundity. Wonderful!' Paul Preston, author of 'Franco'
