(From the publisher):
It's Semana Santa in Seville, the Easter week of passion and processions. A leading restaurateur is found bound, gagged and grotesquely murdered in front of his TV. Self-inflicted wounds tell of the man's struggle to avoid the unendurable images he's been forced to watch. At this horrific scene the normally dispassionate homicide detective Javier Falcón is inexplicably afraid. What could be so terrible?
The investigation into the victim's turbulent life sends Falcón trawling through his own past and the ferociously candid journals of his late father, a world-famous artist. Painful revelations churn up Falcón's unreliable memory and more killings push him to the edge of terrifying truth. And Falcón realizes that this is not just a hunt for the all-seeing killer who knows his victims' secret lives but also the search for his own missing heart.
