Some very nice reviews here. I am especially looking forward to the one by McGilloway. I, too, highly recommend The Summer of Dead Toys by Antonio Hill, set in Barcelona.

It's funny, I read some great reviews of Trackers last year, went to a bookshop with every intention of buying it - and somehow, the blurb put me off. Reassured by Maxine's review, I'll try again.
