Miguel Saenz, Turing, works in an underground department of the Bolivian government, deciphering secret codes that may contain messages of opposition to the government. But what he does not know is that the messages he believes he has deciphered were in fact made up by the ex-boss he idolizes, who is playing a double-crossing game of masquerades. This impeccably structured thriller exposes the darkest secrets and the capacity for deceit inherent in human nature; it takes the reader into a world of fraud, deceptions, lies and betrayals.
