Synopsis:
Offered a career-making writing deal from an enigmatic publisher in turbulent 1960s Barcelona, David Martin wonders about his capacity for writing a book for which the publisher claims others will live and die, an assignment throughout which David struggles with a forbidden love. By the author of The Shadow of the Wind. Simultaneous.

Review:
"Zafon proves himself a magician, vividly invoking bygone Barcelona while unscrolling a byzantine plot at breakneck pace....[H]e seems the perfect author to help prove that serious stuff can also be entertaining as hell."

Keir Graff, Booklist, 03/01/2009

Review:
"[T]his is good summer page-turning thanks to the vibrant secondary cast....[Protagonist David] Martin becomes embroiled in a murder mystery of sorts, but his skewed perspective and untrustworthy narration elevate it above a simple whodunit."

Allison Williams, Time Out (New York), 06/11/2009

Book Description: Random House USA Inc, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. large type edition. 232 x 155 mm. Brand New Book. From master storyteller Carlos Ruiz Zafon, author of the international phenomenon The Shadow of the Wind, comes The Angel s Game--a dazzling new page-turner about the perilous nature of obsession, in literature and in love. The whole of Barcelona stretched out at my feet and I wanted to believe that, when I opened those windows, its streets would whisper stories to me, secrets I could capture on paper and narrate to whomever cared to listen . . . In an abandoned mansion at the heart of Barcelona, a young man, David Martin, makes 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 lie photographs and letters hinting at the mysterious death of the previous owner. Like a slow poison, the history of the place seeps into his bones as he struggles with an impossible love. Close to despair, David receives a letter from a reclusive French editor, Andreas Corelli, who makes him the offer of a lifetime. He is to write a book unlike anything that has ever existed--a book with the power to change hearts and minds. In return, he will receive a fortune, and perhaps more. But as David begins the work, he realizes that there is a connection between his haunting book and the shadows that surround his home. Once again, Zafon takesus into a dark, gothic universe first seen in the Shadow of the Wind and creates a breathtaking adventure of intrigue, romance, and tragedy. Through a dizzingly constructed labyrinth of secrets, the magic of books, passion, and friendship blend into a masterful story. Bookseller Inventory # LVN9780739328491
