By Eduardo Mendoza
El anónimo detective de El misterio de los angeles cripta embrujada, El laberinto de las aceitunas y los angeles aventura del tocador de señoras regresa a los angeles acción en tiempos de difficulty. Contra su voluntad, es decir, movido por los angeles amistad y sin un euro en el bolsillo, vuelve a ejercer de insospechado sabueso en l. a. Barcelona de hoy en una carrera contrarreloj por desarticular una acción terrorista antes de que intervengan los servicios de seguridad del Estado. Años después de dejar el sanatorio psychological donde compartieron celda, Rómulo el Guapo le propone un golpe a nuestro protagonista. Su negativa y l. a. misteriosa desaparición de Rómulo serán el arranque de un enredo para resolver un caso de repercusiones internacionales con l. a. ayuda de un infalible equipo: los angeles adolescente Quesito, el timador profesional Pollo Morgan, el africano albino Kiwijuli Kakawa, conocido como el Juli, los angeles Moski, acordeonista callejera, el repartidor de pizza Manhelik y el señor Armengol, regente del restaurante Se vende perro. Eduardo Mendoza regresa con una sátira genial, como las que sólo él sabe hacer. En ella los angeles fábula crea su propia verosimilitud, que es, paródicamente, l. a. del género policial, y l. a. de los angeles farsa convertida en apólogo ethical. No se puede contar el libro sin una sonrisa; pero es imposible leerlo sin carcajadas, y sin comprender que en l. a. Europa en quiebra técnica que habitamos no basta con el humor dinamitero e inventivo: es preciso, además, el don de l. a. lucidez.
