Overview

The author of the Nic Costa mysteries presents a rewritten version of his first novel, first published in 1995 as Santa Semana
 
It is Holy Week in Seville and the heat is rising. A murderer is on the loose and visiting academic Maria Gutierrez can see something about him 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. 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.
