Synopsis
A un discipulo de Mesmer le encargan que cure el hipo que sufre un sudamericano pobre abandonado en un hospital de Paris en la primavera de 1938. En apariencia, nada puede pasar. Sin embargo el mesmerista Pierre Pain se vera envuelto en una intriga en donde se planea un asesinato ritual de proporciones planetarias. Quien es el sudamericano que agoniza en el hospital Arago? Por que unas fuerzas ocultas desean su muerte? Que se pierde y que se gana con esa muerte? Solo Pierre Pain se da cuenta de lo que se teje entre bastidores. Y el no es un heroe, sino un hombre comun y corriente: solitario, secretamente enamorado de madame Reynaud, delicado, pacifico, descreido, el menos indicado para intentar resolver una historia extraordinaria a mitad de camino entre la casualidad y la causalidad, una aventura a vida o muerte en donde se pondra en juego el amor, la soledad, la dignidad y el valor del ser humano, el delirio, la irremediable tristeza. Una insolita novela en la que el autor de Los detectives salvajes, premiado con el Romulo Gallegos, exhibe su no menos insolita altura literaria. / A disciple of Mesmer is put in charge of curing the hypochondria of a poor South American abandoned in a Paris hospital in the spring of 1938. It seems as though nothing bad could possibly happen, until the hypnotist Pierre Pain becomes embroiled in intrigue which plans ritual assassination of planetary proportions. Only Pierre Pain realises what is going on behind the scenes, but he is no hero, he is an ordinary man and the least inclined to embark on an adventure of life and death where love, solitude, and the value of the human being is put at risk.
