But as he grows up, several people seem inordinately interested in his find. Then, one night, as he’s wandering the old streets all over again, Daniel is approached by a figure who reminds him of a character from the book, a character who turns out to be the devil. This man is tracking down each and every last copy of Carax’s work in an effort to burn them. What begins as a case of literary curiosity turns into a race to find out the truth at the back of the life and death of Julian Carax and to save those he left at the back of…

A SUNDAY TIMES bestseller and Richard & Judy book club choice.
