The Angels’s Game draws with relish on all the conventions beloved of Wilkie Collins and Dickens…weaving them into something entirely original and surprisingly moving that holds the reader’s expectations until the final twist.” The Observer

In an abandoned mansion at the heart of Barcelona, David Martín make his living by writing sensationalist novels under a pseudonym. The survivor of a troubled childhood, he has taken refuge in the world of books, and spends his nights spinning baroque tales about the city’s underworld. But perhaps his dark imaginings are not as strange as they seem, for in a locked room deep within the house are letters hinting at the mysterious death of the previous owner…Then David receives the offer of a lifetime: he is to write a book with the power to change hearts and minds. In return, he will receive a fortune, perhaps more. But as David begins the work, he realises that there is a connection between this haunting book and the shadows that surround his home…

Part two of Ruiz Zafón’s Cemetery of Forgotten Books series is a prequel to the events that took place in part one, The Shadow of the Wind.
