Chris Doyle (gcdoyle) | 3 comments I can't think of the name of a book i read not that long ago. It was translated from Spanish, and was about a boy who is given a book that changes his life forever. The author of the fictional book is a mysterious figure who no one knows much about. It is rumored he died in a duel over a woman in Paris. The boy tries to track down his history and gets involved in a mystery much deeper than expected. The book is set in Barcelona, with the Spanish civil war, and its abuses of power within the ranks of the Police as a backdrop.

Help! :)
