  About The Book

It was an unforgettable summer...

Fourteen-year-old Irene Sauvelle's family has just moved to the foggy coast of Normandy. There, living on the estate of a reclusive toymaker and inventor, she's immediately enchanted by the beauty of the place and the local wealth of ghost stories.

When a young girl is found murdered, her body at the end of a path torn through the woods by a monstrous, inhuman force, Irene begins to wonder: Is there more to the ghost stories than the townspeople let on? And what, exactly, is the inventor guarding so closely in his mansion? She will have to survive the most terrifying summer of her life, trying to piece together the many mysteries and secrets hidden in a town torn apart by tragedy, amid a labyrinth of light and shadows.


Praise for The Watcher in the Shadows:

"Zafón cuts between his various characters with cinematic skill, and his habit of telling stories within the narrative is put to spine-tingling use...Good, solid scares."

"Exciting...Plenty of thrills and chills."
