Hardcover first edition - The first book by this Spanish author to appear in English, a postmodern murder mystery set in ancient Greece, translated by Sonia Soto.

His idealistic teacher Diagoras is convinced the pupil's death is not as accidental as it appears, and asks the famous Heracles Pontor, the "Decipherer of Enigmas," to investigate.. . Simultaneously, a second plot unfolds: that of the modern-day translator of the ancient text, who, as he proceeds with his work, becomes convinced that the original author has hidden a second meaning in the text." 262 pp. ISBN: 0-374106770.
