The Ignorance of Blood- Robert Wilson’s latest which you will read if you know what’s good for you

33956974Did you go to the shelf for Robert Wilson’s The Hidden Assassins when I told you to?

You did?  Aren’t you glad?  Did you know that there’s a new one out?  Yes.  It’s The Ignorance of Blood.  I read it this weekend and it’s excellent.  All the stuff we count on:  Seville, heat, brutality, lust, food, night, terrifying Russians.  Superb.  Operatic.

You didn’t?  Why not?  Does a rave review from an increasingly hard-to-please connoisseur of crime fiction mean nothing to you?  Perhaps you should remove yourself from the fellowship of Stacked readers.  We have nothing more to say to each other.

  1. Hey Nemo, so what’s the best Wilson Book. How do you feel about A Small Death in Lisbon, specifically?

  2. I specifically feel good about A Small Death In Lisbon. And I think Wilson’s quality is pretty even. I have yet to put one down and think that he was just marking time or meeting a deadline.
