Product description

Review

Part gothic mystery, past ribald comedy, part political thriller, part Borgesian parable, and all marvellous (Sunday Times)

A hymn of praise to all the joys of reading (Independent)

A magical tale (Cecilia Ahern)

One of those rare novels that combine brilliant plotting with sublime writing (Sunday Times)

A book lover's dream (The Times)

Irresistibly readable...Walk down any street in Zafon's Barcelona and you'll glimpse the shades of the past and the secrets of the present (Guardian)

Diabolically good (Elle)

This gripping novel has the feel of a gothic ghost story complete with crumbling, ivy-covered mansions, gargoyles and dank prison cells...this is just the sort of literary mystery that would have found favour with Wilkie Collins (Daily Mail)

A deeply satisfying, rich, full read (Sunday Telegraph)

A page-turning exploration of obsession in literature and love (Sunday Express)

Book Description

A stunning literary thriller in the tradition of Umberto Eco. The discovery of a forgotten book leads to a hunt for an elusive author who may or may not still be alive...
