MADRID - Reminders of her son hang close to Pilar Manjon's heart. There's the necklace she wears with his name, Daniel, and the golden pendant bearing his first initial.

Daniel, 20, was heading into downtown Madrid the morning of March 11, 2004, when a series of bombs exploded within minutes aboard four packed commuter trains.

This town's municipal seat is a 1920s Mission-meets-Deco palace at Temple and Main streets. "City Hall: The Heart of Los Angeles," an illustrated children's paperback from Beverly Hills-based Tallfellow Press, hails the restoration of the building, largely completed in 2001.
