In the wake of a terrorist attack on Seville, Inspector Jefe Javier Falcón is determined to fulfil his promise that he'll bring the perpetrators to justice.

The violent death of a gangster provides evidence implicating the Russian mafia, but pitches Falcón straight into the heart of a turf war over prostitution and drugs.

Now the target of vicious hoods, Falcón finds those closest to him are also coming under pressure. His best friend, who's spying for the Spanish government, reveals he is being blackmailed by Islamist extremists and Falcón's own lover suffers a mother's worst nightmare.

Confronted by such fanaticism and brutality, Falcón realises that only the most ruthless retaliation will work. But there is a terrible price to pay... Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " As I said while reading the book, Wilson is an excellent writer. Characters, setting (Seville), plot, and style all combine in a compelling police procedural that you cannot put down. Warning, though: graphic violence. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joseph | 2/15/2014

    " I cannot say I was enthralled by 'The Ignorance of Blood'. However, the plotting by Robert Wilson was engaging enough to keep me interested in the book. The pace and writing style was direct and I liked it for that. As this was my first read of Robert Wilson's work, I assume that this isn't the best of what he has done. So I definitely will read his other novels. He is a good writer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 2/4/2014

    " This is the last in a series of 4. Now I need to go back and read the other 3! It's a great combination of spy thriller and police procedural with interesting characters and complex interpersonal relationships. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mat | 2/2/2014

    " Final book in the Javier Falcon series. Not as strong as the first (best) or second (quite good), but good writing and a fun wrap-up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vicky | 1/21/2014

    " I'd read all books by Robert Wilson. Normally I don't like thrillers, but this story starts in Morocco, Spain, and Seville. Unfortunately, this is the last book with Falcon as a detective, there were 3 or 4 before this one and they were all very good. The last one had it all - the Russian mafia, Muslim fundamentalists and Saudi Arabia Royal family. I hope that Wilson will create a new story in the future. "

    " Another free audio book from Danish National broadcaster DR. Extremely well written, compelling plot, exotic characters. Ideal thriller. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bonnie | 1/14/2014

    " Oh no. I loved this book and found out it is the last of four books with Javier Falcon Seville as a Spanish Homicide Detective. I love this type of book, so much like the Wallender books by Henning Mankell. Now, I must find the others; I can't wait. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 1/4/2014

    " Very action packed. Sometimes too much so. Was an ok read. Wasn't bad and didn't blow me away either. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bob Bauer | 12/23/2013

    " Te last of the Javier Falcon series, even though this is the first one I have read. I loved it. Can't wait to go back and read the earlier works in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Hill | 12/10/2013

    " Terrorist attacks, kidnapping, Russian mafia, assassination, al queda, prostitution, politics and love... You couldn't possibly pack any more into a 21st century crime novel. Worth the read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian Grover | 10/9/2013

    " Read it in Spain shortly before we went to Seville. Really enjoyed it, but this is a genre I don't think I can enjoy to a level above three stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff | 8/2/2013

    " Ok it started off a bit slowly and I didn't particularly like his style, thought it was over the top. But I stuck with him and he turned out to be a pretty good story teller. Would recommend this book to all who like mystery and suspense. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane | 7/25/2013

    " Nearly finished and enjoying it mostly. However, tends to be a little convoluted! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ian | 1/27/2013

    " Finishes up the Falcon series following up on the terrorist attack and the innocence or guilt of Calderon. A bloody good ending to a bloody good series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy | 9/13/2012

    " bought this in the airport bookstore before leaving on 12hr plane trip. What a good find. Interesting mystery with intriguing main characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maya | 6/24/2012

    " Love this book. In fact, I love all of Robert Wilson's stuff. He's a great writer who can bring you right into his work "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ian Ritchie | 5/30/2012

    " I thought this was a very good read - lots going on and drawing on the previous three books i thought a terrific finale. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caroline | 10/7/2011

    " Set in Seville, this typical dectective book transcends the genre. It is smartly written, the characters are well developed and the plot points don't pop up just to solve things randomly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn Kearney | 9/28/2011

    " 3.5 I'd forgotten how much I like Javier Falcon and the Spanish setting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lee | 6/30/2011

    " Really a 3.5 star. Loved this series. Absolutely do read it and in order (Blind Man of Seville is the first). I just felt this book was not quite as good as the others. "
