The Cemetery of Forgotten Books 2139
The stunning new novel from the internationally bestselling author of THE SHADOW OF THE WIND. In an abandoned mansion at the heart of Barcelona, a young man - David Martin - makes his living by writing sensationalist novels under a pseudonym.

Like a slow poison, the history of the place seeps into his bones as he struggles with an impossible love.

But as David begins the work, he realises that there is a connection between this haunting book and the shadows that surround his home...
