Praise for The Blind Man of Seville:

'Robert Wilson's fiction grows darker, deeper, more adamantly original. His seventh novel – nominally a thriller – turns the format inside out, extending its reach, tuning up the language, reinventing its anatomy. It is crime writing at its very best, but it is also something more. It observes no limits, it begs no pardon. It excites, it surprises and it satisfies. High praise but Wilson really is this good.' Philip Oakes, Literary Review

'The Blind Man of Seville is an ingenious and compelling thriller. It covers some unusual ground: the nature of artistic genius, for example, and the price of happiness. But while the investigation is convincing enough, it is Falcón Sr's diaries that are the real gem. They are full of drama and confession – like Alan Clark's, but with paintbrushes, firearms and catamites' Toby Clements, Daily Telegraph

'As an evocation of the emotional labyrinth of postwar Tangiers and as a tale of artistic drift, it's rather brilliant – a detective story Paul Bowles never wrote' Chris Petit, Guardian

'It is a book that exists on multiple levels, kicking off as an off-key detective story and ending up as (among other things) a tense psychological thriller and a literary investigation into perception and family loyalties. A wonderful, if dark and disturbing, literary detective novel.' Martin Radcliffe, Time Out

'The momentum never flags as the clues mount up and Falcón begins to realize where they are leading. It's an intriguing story and Mr Wilson handles its complexities superbly' Susanna Yager, Sunday Times

'This is powerful evocative stuff' Peter Guttridge, Observer

Praise for A Small Death in Lisbon:

‘Robert Wilson follows in the footsteps of such writers as John le Carré and Phillip Kerr... A highly satisfying book, part thiller, part psychological mystery and part novel of ideas. And it is superbly well written’ Irish Times

‘Compulsively readable, with the cop’s quest burning its way though a narrative rich in history and intrigue, love and death’ Literary Review

‘Complex and fascinating’ The Times
