Robert Wilson has spent several years in West Africa, and he drew on this experience for his Bruce Medway novels. He and his wife now live in Portugal.
Praise for the Blind Man of Seville:
`Crime writing at its very best, but it is also something more. It observes no limits, it begs no one's pardon. It excites, it surprises and it satisfies.This is a fine important novel' Philip Oakes, Literary Review
`Admirably paced and enthrallingly elaborate' Sunday Times
`To call Robert Wilson's The Blind Man of Seville a thriller is to do a grave injustice to an utterly stunning achievement.The central narrative of the detective on the verge of a nervous breakdown is a psychological thriller of real profundity. Wonderful!' Paul Preston, author of Franco
'The Blind Man of Seville is an ingenious and compelling thriller.' 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
