"Could God have made the same mistake twice? Under the sun, we soon become other things. The real itself is criminal." Like Borges and Marquez, or even Picasso and Dali, Ruiz's theory fiction responds to the simulacra of the world with a gift for the real. The novel is an undeniably postmodern literary blitzkrieg, which serves to challenge our prevailing assumptions regarding the universe, human folly and the crime thriller novel.
