The Angel's Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
The Angel's Game is set in Barcelona in the 1920s. Writer David Martin has been successful writing serialized fiction from the tower of his gothic home, which has its own secrets he's yet to discover. He's been writing with a pseudonym since he considers himself a serious novelist, but that has kept him from attaining both popularity and the woman he loves. When a French editor offers him fame and fortune if he'll write the greatest story ever told, Martin is intrigued, but initially reluctant. Accepting the offer plunges him into a dark world of evil. Carlos Ruiz Zafon's novel has received mixed reviews with USA Today saying, "Game is a multi-layered confection that combines undying love, magical realism, meditations on religion, the importance of books and a love affair with the vibrant city of Barcelona. Zafon hits the reset button on what it means to be a great writer. His visionary storytelling prowess is a genre unto itself."
