Lucas, a musician and translator, comes home one day to find a cryptic postcard on his doorstep. This postcard sets in motion a series of bizarre, seemingly interconnected events, leading Lucas and his girlfriend, Nuria, to be kidnapped by a religious cult with roots stretching back to the thirteenth century.

Seeking guidance from a fire-eater, a band of mythic roof-dwellers, and his deeply skeptical friends, Lucas must figure out who to believe-or who can believe him. In his internationally acclaimed debut, Richard Gwyn takes us on a gripping ride of faith and deceit through Barcelona's Gothic Quarter.

    " The life of Lucas is intertwined with a religious cult of Cathars in Barcelona. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chelsey | 6/13/2010

    " This book was nothing short of enthralling - the kind of book that makes you stay up too late just to get in one more chapter. It's exceptionally well written and tells a fascinating tale of a man's abduction by a Catholic cult. Highly, highly recommended! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katherine | 5/17/2010

    " Decent story. Pretty good writing style. I was confused about the symbolism of the Baron character and the point of the roof "angel". Overall I would give it three and half stars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dolores | 3/16/2010

    " I don't have much to say about this book. It was relatively interesting and certainly well-written. I think I would have liked it more had I remembered more of Barcelona, and I am still confused by the story. So I would recommend it, but would also recommend that you try something else first. "

    " I espeacily enjoyed this book having visited Barcelona "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ali6 | 7/24/2008

    " I wanted to like this book and it sounded interesting, but after 50 something pages I was still bored. Maybe I'll try it again sometime. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Diane | 4/28/2008

    " Um. . .

    Well. . .

    I guess parts of this book were good. I think the title would more be more correct if it were, "The Part of My Life in Which I was Drunk 24/7: and then I wrote it down, added an ending and published it." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gregg | 8/5/2007

    " The seemingly contradictory title tells it all. This fictional books set in Barcelona is great for preparing me for my trip there in November "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 7/8/2007

    " Hypnotic and mysterious, though nearly to the point of cliche. Walks a fine line, anyway. Overall, sexy, witty, dreamy, and a worthwhile read. "
