The Angel’s Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafón

angel's gameThe Angel’s Game is narrated by David Martín, a struggling crime novelist in 1920s Barcelona who signs an incredibly lucrative book deal with a mysterious French publisher, unaware of just how high the stakes are.

Quote:
“Even then my only friends were made of paper and ink. […] Words and the mystery of their hidden science fascinated me, and I saw in them a key with which I could unlock a boundless world, a safe haven from that home, those streets, and those troubled days in which even I could sense that only a limited fortune awaited me.”
