Plot Summary
The Blind Man of Seville is the first novel in the Inspector Javier Falcon series by author Robert Wilson.  A leading restaurateur has been found bound gagged and with no eyelid.  Most of the wounds are self inflicted. Falcon is called in to investigate and their seem many reasons for his death including a resentful wife or corruption.  However, when more bodies start to appear Falcon realises that the killer is much closer to home and discovers that it is connected to his past, one he never knew he had.

My Review
This book was probably overly long.  At nearly 700 page it sometimes became a bit of a drag to read.  As Falcon reads his father's diaries these are presented in that format to the reader.  Unfortunately these two become a bit annoying reading them and actually in the main part add very little to the overall story line.

It's a shame because I actually highly enjoyed the plot.  I thought it was very good.  Wilson creates a part police-procedural and part psychological book showing how events we remember can be manufactured and not at all what actually happened.  Particularly when those events are horrific.
