SRP 2012 REVIEW: Set in a very atmospheric Barcelona, a boy discovers a rare book by an obscure author in the 'Cemetery of Lost books'. A horribly disfigured man is searching down all copies of the author's books in order to burn them. As he investigates the mystery a large cast of interelated characters, all with their own secrets, add to the mystery and suspense. This book takes you on quite a ride, incorporating just about all genres of reading!
