The internationally acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Carlos Ruiz Zafon takes us into a dark, gothic Barcelona and creates a rich, labyrinthine tale of love, literature, passion, and revenge in which the heroes of The Shadow of the Wind and The Angel's Game must contend with a nemesis that threatens to destroy them.
Barcelona, 1957. It is Christmas, and Daniel Sempere and his wife, Bea, have much to celebrate. They have a beautiful new baby son named Julian, and their close friend Fermin Romero de Torres is about to be wed. But their joy is eclipsed when a mysterious stranger visits the Sempere bookshop and threatens to divulge a terrible secret that has been buried for two decades in the city's dark past. His appearance plunges Fermin and Daniel into a dangerous adventure that will take them back to the 1940s and the early days of Franco's dictatorship. The terrifying events of that time launch them on a search for the truth that will put into peril everything they love and ultimately transform their lives.
Full of intrigue and emotion, The Prisoner of Heaven is a majestic novel in which the threads of The Shadow of the Wind and The Angel's Game converge under the spell of literature and bring us toward the enigma hidden at the heart of the Cemetery of Forgotten Books, a collection of lost treasures known only to its few initiates, and the very core of Carlos Ruiz Zafon's enchanting fictional world.

Special reading !
As all the books Carlos Ruiz Zafon wrote, this one is once again a beautiful one ! Hard to put down once you start it !
Imagination, sensibility and beauty together with deep knowledge of history and a great love for Barcelona makes a really unique work of art from each of Carlos Ruiz Zafon's books.
Way too short!
I love the style of writing, and I relished the other 2 books in the series....my heart fell when I saw this book was half the length of the others. That being said....it closes some loops in the story line and it's a must read if you enjoyed the other two......but I so wanted more.......
If you liked Shadow of the Wind and The Angel's Game then grab a copy, a warm cup of coffee and enjoy. You will not be disappointed.
