Publisher's Summary

Una estupenda obra de suspenso y misterio policíaco, esta novela se desarolla en los finales del siglo XIX dentro del marco de la Exposición Universal realizada en París en 1889. La historia comienza con el misterioso asesinato de un detective privado, que asiste a una convención de detectives de todo el mundo, organizada para exponer sus diferentes métodos de investigación utilizados en sus diferentes países de origen.

Esto da la pauta para desorrollar una historia de suspenso llevada con maestría por De Santis; el caso es investigado por los diferentes miembros de la convención, para lograr resolver el misterio de aquel asesinato. Paulatinamente el lector se convierte en otro de los investigadores, y poco a poco descubrirá que dentro del grupo hay quizá no uno sino varios asesinos, y uno de ellos es un asesino en serie. Esto mantiene el interés y hace tan ágil la lectura que el lector no querrá terminar esta interesante novela.

Please note: This title is in Spanish.

Buena historia clásica de detectives

Una interesante historia de detectives (con un ligero sabor a lo Sherlock Holmes) en el marco de la feria mundial de Paris en 1889 (el misterio alrededor de la Torre Eiffel), buen manejo del suspenso con una buena narración.

Interesting story, great reader

I am an intermediate Spanish student I had been slowly working my way through this book for about a month when I noticed that there was a recorded version. I read and listened at the same time and quickly found my reading ability to be improving greatly. I strongly recommend this method to anyone who wants to improve their ability to understand spoken Spanish and their ability to read Spanish. I wish Audible had a greater selection of Spanish novels. By this I mean novels written originally in Spanish, not translations. Why no M??rquez, Llosa, etc? By the way this reader is great. His Spanish is beautifully clear.
