The taker, and other stories by Rubem Fonseca( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: "The Taker and Other Stories is Rubem Fonseca's first collection to appear in English translation, and it ranges across his oeuvre, exploring the sights and sounds of the modern landscape of Rio de Janeiro. Fonseca's Rio is a city at war, a city whose disparities-in wealth, social standing, and prestige-are untenable. In the stories of The Taker, rich and poor live in an uneasy equilibrium, where only overwhelming force can maintain order, and violence and deception are essential tools of survival." Whether recounting the story of a businessman who runs over pedestrians to let off steam, a serial killer being pushed to ever greater crimes by his bourgeois lover, the desperate poor rushing to butcher a cow that has been killed in a traffic accident, or a man seeking out confirmation for a past that his friends deny, Fonseca repeatedly reaffirms his status as one of the purest storytellers on the contemporary Brazilian literary scene

Este es un primer episodio de la rica historia del personaje emblemático de Rubem Fonseca: Mandrake, un abogado criminalista mujeriego y con pretensiones de detective, que investiga dos misteriosos casos. En el primero, sus servicios son requeridos por una atractiva coleccionista de libros raros, que le pide dar con el paradero de un amigo muy peculiar, un enano experto en libros que parece estar involucrado en el robo de una de las famosas Biblias de Gutenberg, y dicha Biblia se convierte a la larga en el centro de las pesquisas. En el segundo caso, un hombre de la alta sociedad de Río es asesinado en circunstancias muy extrañas, pues ninguna de las cámaras de seguridad de su casa da indicios de quién pudo haber entrado a cometer el crimen. El problema es que la esposa de la víctima es amante de Mandrake, y el asesinato se cometió con el estoque de uno de sus bastones, así que todas las pruebas lo señalan como el principal sospechoso
