Detective Inspector Javier Falcn is transfixed by the brutalized face of murder victim Raul Jimnez in his Seville apartment. On his shirtfront, littered like exotic petals, are the man's eyelids, and so the victims relentless horror becomes the beginning of Falcn's own.

An old photograph at the murder scene prompts Falcn to read a set of journals left by his famous father, the artist Fransisco Falcn. He discovers that he'd never known the father he'd always loved, and as the case unfolds, Falcn's mind unravels as all the old certainties are undermined. More victims fall but neither the evidence nor the secrets of the victims' lives give Falcn the vital breakthrough he needs. The pieces of the puzzle finally fall together when Falcn finds the missing section of his father's journals--and becomes the killer's next intended victim.

With The Blind Man of Seville, Robert Wilson's unparalleled combination
of suspenseful storytelling and keen understanding of the ambiguities of the human soul confirm his place as one of the best mystery writers in the world today.
