Publisher Description

"We all have a secret buried under lock and key in the attic of our soul. This is mine."
When Fifteen-year-old Oscar Drai suddenly vanishes from his boarding school in Barcelona, no one knows his whereabouts for seven days and seven nights.
His story begins when he meets the strange Marina while he's exploring an old quarter of the city. She leads Oscar to a cemetery, where they watch a macabre ritual that occurs on the last Sunday of each month. At exactly ten o'clock in the morning, a woman shrouded in a black velvet cloak descends from her carriage to place a single rose on an unmarked grave.
When Oscar and Marina decide to follow her, they begin a journey that transports them to a forgotten postwar Barcelona--a world of aristocrats and actresses, inventors and tycoons--an reveals a dark secret that lies waiting in the mysterious labyrinth beneath the city streets.
Carlos Ruiz Zafon's haunting Marina has long been a cult classic in Spain and is now an international bestseller.

Another fabulous story

I have enjoyed all of Carlos's novels very much and is possibly my favorite writer. This story like all others is filled with such details that your mind creates vivid images which in turn enables you to imagine yourself as Oscar, living through story.

Marina

Barcelona noir which he does so well. As usual, the story is dripping with suspense, creepy sewer dwellers, and heartbreak. This is the 4th novel of his I've read and won't be the last.
