Be forewarned of the unrelieved bleakness of this novel about how the sins of the past haunt the present. In Seville, Homicide Detective Javier Falcon investigates a series of ghastly murders in which the killer removes the eyelids of his victims to force them to see that which is beyond bearing. As the case proceeds, it becomes apparent to Falcon that it is entwined somehow with the life of his late father, a renowned artist, whom Falcon learns, to his increasing horror, had much to hide. The book is dense and grim, and Sean Barrett's monotonous reading does little to keep the listener focused and engaged. It’s a serious and challenging work, but expect no help from the narrator.
