Now in stock, one of the most critically acclaimed detective thrillers of the year. After some short story collections, this Muñoz Rengel's first incursion into novel.

«The great surprise of the year. A evocative novel so chilling that it can produce laughter, giggle attacks and cerebral congestion».

FÉLIX J. PALMA, author of the international bestseller 'The Map of Time'.


«'The hypochondriac killer' hides under the guise of a simple detective story a real lesson in philosophy».



«A very remarkable comedy».



«Sense of humour and attempted murder make a rare mixture that narratively explodes in the funny novel by Juan Jacinto Muñoz Rengel».


Product Description: M.Y., contract killer and great hypochondriac, is to kill Eduardo Blaisten. His mysterious client remains in the shadows, but this doesn't worry Mr. Y., who defines himself as a Kantian style assassin, killing scrupulously, with efficiency and elegance, while always respecting the privacy of his paymaster. There is just one small problem: Mr. Y. is going to die that very day. In reality, he has been dying for many years. The fact is that Mr. Y. is afflicted with such a variety of illnesses that he has been at death's door almost since birth. Our hero continually compares himself to the most illustrious hypochondriacs from the history of literature and thought: Poe, Voltaire, Tolstoy, Moliere. This mission, his objective and his numerous attempts on Blaisten's life involve our hero in an in increasingly complex intrigue, as his imaginary symptoms frustrate his attempts at homicide.
