Maybe the statements about Patricia Melo being the heiress of Rubem Fonseca are exaggerated. Melo creates a bizarre mistery novel and adds a solid satire about the editorial industry of Brazil (and perhaps worlwide). Nevertheless, the story quite never reaches a climatic point worth of a good mystery novel, and its attempt on varying narrative style according to the jobs of the main character are, if any, rudely obvious.
Still, it stands as a mystery novel that deviates in style and plot from the rest.
