A literary thriller about a contemporary gallery owner plunged into a fascinating extinct world Emili Rossell, the young owner of one of Barcelona's top galleries, receives an old manuscript written by an Italian architect about the "Invisible City"--an ambitious project dreamed up by King Charles III to build an alternative capital city in the Ebro delta. The manuscript contains hints about a lost masterpiece by the Venetian painter Tiepolo, and the site of the Invisible City is where Emili used to play as a child. Juxtaposing the life of the 18th-century royal court and the contemporary art world--both with a similar share of intrigue, politics, and romance--this is a gripping historical mystery and a compelling examination of the forces of power and love.
