This is a weird story where a murder is trying to be solve (and fails) in the manner of Poe. Very disappointing. The psycho babble about gods, kings and what else is, for me, smoke in your eyes as the author tries his very best to lose us in the worst kind of intellectualism.

A pitch-perfect (mirror-image, if you like) story of the type that Borges himself was famous for. Full of symbolism, doppelgangers, iconography and powerful secret societies. Above all it is about the ultimate power of words; a power that can create and possibly destroy the universe. A charming homage to Borges that could stand alongside the works of the master himself.
