Crímenes imperceptibles

Жанр: Иностранная литература

Pocos días después de haber llegado a Oxford, un joven estudiante argentino encuentra el cadáver de una anciana que ha sido asfixiada con un almohadón. El asesinato resulta ser un desafío intelectual lanzado a uno de los lógicos más eminentes del siglo, Arthur Seldom, y el primero de una serie de crímenes. Mientras la policía investiga a una sucesión de sospechosos, maestro y discípulo llevan adelante su propia investigación, amenazados por las derivaciones cada vez más riesgosas de sus conjeturas. Crímenes imperceptibles, que conjuga a los sombríos hospitales ingleses con los juegos de lenguaje de Wittgenstein, al teorema de Godel con los arrebatos de la pasión y a las sectas antiguas de matemáticos con el arte de los viejos magos, es una novela policial de trama aparentemente clásica que, en el sorprendente desenlace, se revela como un magistral acto de prestidigitación.

The Oxford Murders

Жанр: Иностранная литература

On a balmy summer's day in Oxford an old lady who once helped decipher the Enigma Code is killed. After receiving a cryptic anonymous note containing only the address and the symbol of a circle, Arthur Seldom, a leading mathematician, arrives to find the body. Then follow more murders – an elderly man on a life-support machine is found dead with needle marks in this throat; the percussionist of an orchestra at a concert at Blenheim Palace dies before the audience's very eyes – seemingly unconnected except for notes appearing in the maths department, for the attention of Seldom. Why is he being targeted as the recipient of these coded messages? All he can conjecture is that it might relate to his latest book, an unexpected bestseller about serial killers and the parallels between investigations into their crimes and certain mathematical theorems. It is left to Seldom and a postgraduate mathematics student to work out the key to the series of symbols before the killer strikes again.
