Uno de los más grandes escritores italianoscontemporáneos, Gesualdo Bufalino, ha escrito esta novela como personalísimo homenaje a Agatha Christie. El libro narra un misterio: la muerte de un editor, por delito o infortunio, en su casa de vacaciones. Se sigue de ahí una investigación que pone en jaque a todos los invitados y que la propia víctima, a través de póstumas revelaciones, parece querer dirigir en primera persona. Hasta que su secretaria, una solterona de pocas gracias y muchas virtudes, resuelve o cree resolver el caso.

Die Vorstellung, dass der Verlauf der GESCHICHTE, wie Pascal einmal meinte, von der Grösse einer Nase abhängen könne, lässt die Historiker für gewöhnlich die Nase rümpfen.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"Hay un cadver: el del editor Medardo Aquila; una investigadora aficionada: Esther Scamporrino, alias Agatha; un inspector de polica: Massimilano Curr; y, por supuesto, la inevitable coleccin de sospechosos. El resultado, sin embargo, no es una policaca convencional sino una novel inteligente, llena de humor, que absorbe al lector con una prosa precisa y corrosiva. Es el genial Bufalino en una de sus ms brillantes apariciones."--Publisher's description.… (more)
