Publisher Description

“A deep and mysterious novel full of people that feel real. . . .An enthralling read and a must-have for your library. Zafón focuses on the emotion of the reader and doesn’t let go.”  — Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Internationally acclaimed, New York Times bestselling author Carlos Ruiz Zafón creates a rich, labyrinthine tale of love, literature, passion, and revenge, set in a dark, gothic Barcelona, in which the heroes of The Shadow of the Wind and The Angel's Game must contend with a nemesis that threatens to destroy them.

Barcelona, 1957. It is Christmas, and Daniel Sempere and his wife, Bea, have much to celebrate. They have a beautiful new baby son named Julián, and their close friend Fermín Romero de Torres is about to be wed. But their joy is eclipsed when a mysterious stranger visits the Sempere bookshop and threatens to divulge a terrible secret that has been buried for two decades in the city's dark past.

His appearance plunges Fermín and Daniel into a dangerous adventure that will take them back to the 1940s and the early days of Franco's dictatorship. The terrifying events of that time launch them on a search for the truth that will put into peril everything they love, and will ultimately transform their lives.

Beeshor ,

Special reading !

As all the books Carlos Ruiz Zafon wrote, this one is once again a beautiful one ! Hard to put down once you start it !
Imagination, sensibility and beauty together with deep knowledge of history and a great love for Barcelona makes a really unique work of art from each of Carlos Ruiz Zafon's books.

Read this book...

And you will be transported to a Barcelona most of us have never experienced. Such a well written story of friendship, family and Spain, more than fifty years ago.
But I'm making it sound so silly, and this is not a silly book. It's very deep and moving, and I will read more by this author!

Niceeee and Fun ,

Wow

I got a hard copy for a dollar at Dollar Tree :)
