Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: A tiro limpio narra una historia en la que, en clave de humor grotesco, se combinan el terror, la investigacion policial y el espionaje, y cuya trama enreda y desenreda con alegre desenvoltura el lenguaje mismo, lleno de juegos, paradojas y malabarismos que a un tiempo nos hacen temblar y reir. Boris Vian se desdobla, se multiplica en diez personajes, estrafalarios pero entranables, que se persiguen de Auteuil a Borneo, nadan en charcos de sangre animal y se matan alegremente unos a otros mientras se disputan un misterioso artefacto, el barbarin bifido. Una historia que Boris Vian se conto a si mismo porque no la encontro relatada en ningun libro. / Scrambled Case tells a humorously grotesque story that combines terror, police investigation and espionage, and whose plot weaves and unravels, tangles and untangles with joyful ease the language itself, full of games, paradoxes and balancing act that at once make us shiver and laugh.
