Reviews In her debut novel, Catriona Child has all the makings of a cult hit... She handles the tension between the fantastical premise and the raw and sensitive matter of a dead schoolboy tastefully, and the book's sense of place makes it a delight for lovers of Edinburgh. THE HERALD

This tale of loss and isolation is a powerful piece of contemporary Scottish literature that expertly blends fantastical subject matter with a profound look at the destructive effects of bereavement. THE SKINNY

This is a beautifully crafted book, fluid and rhythmic... Trackman is an inspiring and powerful novel that explores harsh realities with humour. THE STUDENT

It's a story that will resonate with creative types across Edinburgh and indeed the world. TEN TRACKS

Catriona Child has a pitch perfect ear for contemporary dialogue and a professional's eye for the detail of a city that the tourists rarely notice. Trackman will be on replay in yourhead for a long time. NORTHWORDS NOW
