En esta antología de relatos, el tema predominante es el crimen, ya sea por celos, venganza o simple maldad. Maupassant demuestra su maestría a la hora de narrarnos lo recovecos más oscuros del ser humano. He de añadir que estos relatos se alejan de la temática fantástica y sobrenatural. Resalto sobre todo la capacidad de Maupassant para engancharte con unas líneas de manera tal que es imposible dejar de leer. Sin lugar a dudas, todo un maestro.
