"Mario Vega is seven years old and his life is about to change forever. Across the street in an exclusive suburb of Seville his father is splayed out dead on the kitchen floor, while his mother lies in bed upstairs, suffocated under her own pillow. It appears to be a suicide pact, but Inspector Jefe Javier Falcón has his doubts when he finds an enigmatic note crushed into the dead man's hand."
The is the 2nd in the 'Falcon' series - the fictional detective based in Seville who naturally has an interesting background story and intriguing life.
In this book the author gets straight into the action with what appears to be a double suicide, neighbours are however involved and implicated. Their backgrounds causing Falcon much concern. I find his dialogue brilliant - which is good as it greatly helps the interview sections of the book to grip you - he really must enjoy writing it as much as a dog enjoys a good bone.
The pace is good, the plot is twisted and the revelations unexpected. I really think Wilson should be better known as his books are very rewarding and satisfying. Try them. ”
