In this book Guillermo Martínez interweaves philosophical issues with a crime intrigue. The main character is a writer involved in a personal tragedy of a young woman. Her problem is unusual – all her relatives dying after a paradoxical sequence of coincidences. Whether the culprit is a famous novelist whom she has hurt or everything is her imagination?
With a concise and readable style, Guillermo Martínez balances between the different philosophical views of the crime and the punishment. But he does not take on the role of a judge but only that of the accurate observer of the hidden human nature's features.
