This is book #2 in a four-book series featuring Inspector Jefe Javier Falcón of the police in Seville, Spain; the US title of this book is “The Silent and the Damned”; the book has a suitably complex storyline, but the author seems to be more comfortable writing in areas like Pedophilia where you can get away with lots of clichés than he is when writing in areas like the Russian mafia where you can’t; and again he strews around the names of Sevilla foods and places in situations in which the name of a street or the particular food being eaten is irrelevant, so he has not at all figured out how to infuse the story with the atmosphere of Sevilla in a way that contributes to the story instead of simply getting in the way of storyline flow.
