Murder, revenge and betrayal make this Holy Week in Seville the deadliest on recordIt is Holy Week in Seville and the heat is rising. A murderer is on the loose and visiting academic Maria Gutierrez can see something in his ways that the police are missing. But her insight does nothing to help her popularity in the force - and draws her to the attention of the killer. The Angel Brothers, two controversial modern artists, are found dead in a killing that emulates a famous painting, and an old lady remembers the atrocities of the Civil War. Maria was supposed to be an observer to the police investigation. But her own past in the city soon puts her one step ahead of the cops ? and in the killer's sights.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from "Dead Men's Sock's" Briefs Short stories are often irritating in their simplicity. Characters are black or white, good or bad, simple or bright, and so on. There is insufficient time and space to develop much character. Hewson's story has these problems but is still entertaining enough to be a fair read. Old fashioned writing with the clues out there. Embarassing when you miss them.
