Best part of the writing is the author’s use of Barcelona. He captures the still humid heat of summer, the romance of the old barrios, the sounds and smells of the city; the hanging on of the old, despite pressures of the new, etc. Fun to read and to feel the reconstruction of the city and one’s memories of the city, as the plots wind and twist and finally resolve themselves....... with a few things still hanging in the air.

I don't mean to give short shrift to the well written characters.
