What you need to know before your trail

Great sequel to 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.

He has taken refuge in the world of books due to a troubled childhood and spends his nights spinning weird and wonderful 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.

Travel Guide

As with the first book in the series The Shadow of the Wind, this second story about the Cemetery of Forgotten books is set in the historical and gothic city of Barcelona, a perfect back drop to the atmosphere and sense of intrigue which seeps from every page.

Iconic sites such as the Sagrada Familia arch majestically over the scenes below and is where David takes a walk past and ends up in the Ciutadella Park. There is also the cemetery where the newspaper offices are near to taking more unusual and even darker gothic tones into the novel.

Where this novel excels is it ability to transport you to the Barcelona that you’re sure exists behind the iron facades and the gothic spires of the churches. The abstract appearance of the Gaudi buildings are those which you see in a unique light as you walk in David’s shoes across the city.

This is a magical booktrail and a stunning new view of a city already loved by millions.
