Summer of Dead Toys
July 8, 2013 - Amy Phelps
A troubled inspector works a case of a college student's "accidental" death in Antonio Hill's "The Summer of Dead Toys."
An Argentinian living in Barcelona, Inspector Hector Salgado left town for home for a few months when a human trafficking case got the best of him and he hit a suspect, almost killing him, and bringing scrutiny to the police department. Now back in town, everyone is eying him and Salgado has been given a new case - about a college student who was partying too much and fell from a balcony, either suicide or an accident. But the victim's college friends all act just a little too calm and a little too strange, which leads Salgado to believe something else is going on. His investigation will lead him into dark family secrets, anger and tragedy, just as his personal life will take a dark turn as well.
A Spanish novel reissued in English, this is a gritty thriller with plenty of twists and turns that will keep pages turning.
"The Summer of Dead Toys" is published by Crown. It is $26 and 354 pages long.
