A brief history lesson: Muslims ruled what is now southern Spain for more than 700 years before being pushed out by the Catholic royals Ferdinand and Isabella. Well, it’s 2006 and they’re still angry about it in The Hidden Assassins, Robert Wilson’s third book starring police Inspector Jefe Javier Falcon. When an apartment block is bombed and a mosque discovered in its basement, suspicion is naturally cast upon Islamic extremists, though an ultra-conservative Catholic group may also hold some answers. Wilson, who both continues and resolves entangled plot lines and deep characterizations from previous books, mixes elements from police procedurals, spy novels, and political thrillers into an intriguing, yet sometimes overly confusing, mystery.
