Holy shit, totally forgot that Carlos Ruiz Zafón's The Prisoner of Heaven was coming out this week! =( Pretty bad, I know. . .
Well, just ordered it, so that's that!
Here's the blurb:
The Prisoner of Heaven returns to the world of The Cemetery of Forgotten Books and the Sempere and Sons bookshop, where Daniel, and his old friend Fermín Romero de Torres, are tending shop. Daniel is now married with a son, and Fermín is soon to follow. Both men lead relatively happy and quiet lives. Enter an enigmatic visitor--a grim old man with a piercing gaze--who inquires about Fermín’s whereabouts. When told he is not in, the old man proceeds to buy the most expensive item in the store, a first edition of The Count of Monte Cristo, adds a dedication and leaves it as a present for Fermín. When Daniel reveals the details of this unsettling encounter to his friend, Fermín reads the dedication, turns pale, and at Daniel’s insistence, decides to open up about a past that has come back to haunt him…a story that will leave Daniel questioning his very existence.
