Carlos Ruiz Zafón
Barcelona, 1945: A city slowly heals from its war wounds, and Daniel, the son of an antiquarian bookseller who mourns the loss of his mother, finds comfort in a mysterious book called The Shadow of the Wind, by Julian Carax. But when he sets out to find the author's other works, he makes a shocking discovery: someone has systematically destroyed every copy of every book Carax has written. In fact, Daniel may have the last of Carax's existing books. Soon, Daniel's seemingly innocent search opens a door to one of Barcelona's darkest secrets - an epic tale of murder, madness and condemnation.
