Written by the grandson of police commissioner Marcelino Gilibert, this account describes a famous homicide case in Bogotá at the beginning of the 20th century. A veil of mystery surrounds the death of Madame High Heels, a small luxury furniture provider for Bogotá's high society. While many suspect her husband of killing her for her fortune, inspector Lubín Bonilla and police commissioner Marcelino Gilibert are not convinced. At moments, this somewhat dark work transcends its own thrilling plot and provides a portrait of the small capital city with all its charm, disappointments, dreams, and corruption.   Escrito por el nieto del comisario Marcelino Gilibert, este cuento narra un caso famoso del homicidio que ocurrió en Bogotá al comienzo del siglo veinte. Un velo de misterio rodea la muerte de Madame Taconcitos, la diminuta proveedora de muebles de lujo para la sociedad bogotana. La mayoría de la gente inculpa a su marido de matarla para quedarse con su fortuna, pero el inspector Lubín Bonilla y el comisario Marcelino Gilibert no están convencidos. Esta novela un poco oscura crea una trama de suspenso donde, además del hecho central, se aprecia el ambiente bogotano con todos sus encantos, desencantos, sueños y corruptelas.
