Publisher Description

From the author of the international phenomenon The Shadow of the Wind, comes a riveting masterpiece about love, literature, and betrayal.
 
In this powerful, labyrinthian thriller, David Martín is a pulp fiction writer struggling to stay afloat. Holed up in a haunting abandoned mansion in the heart of Barcelona, he furiously taps out story after story, becoming increasingly desperate and frustrated. Thus, when he is approached by a mysterious publisher offering a book deal that seems almost too good to be real, David leaps at the chance. But as he begins the work, and after a visit to the Cemetery of Forgotten Books, he realizes that there is a connection between his book and the shadows that surround his dilapidated home and that the publisher may be hiding a few troubling secrets of his own. Once again, Ruiz Zafón takes us into a dark, gothic Barcelona and creates a breathtaking tale of intrigue, romance, and tragedy

A Master of Descriptive Language

What I love the most about Zafon, is that he takes you to the places he describes. He leaves you in the story. I often wonder through the plot trying to guess the next twist, but he always turns a different way. This series is great, and one of my favorites!

Captivating

One of the best books I've ever read in my life! Captivating and all encompassing beautiful sorrow!

Writing with Clarity

More ethereal and not quite as compelling as the others in the series but, it does fill a void of information about some of the characters. The writing continues to be incredibly clear and descriptive so that you feel every emotion and physical presence.
