The city is Beszel, a dilapidated metropolis on the eastern edge of Europe. The other city is Ul Qoma, a modern expanding city in Eastern Europe, albeit a bit internationally marginalized. What the two cities have in common and what they don`t is the delightfully atmospheric puzzle in the heart of The City & The City of China Mieville. Mieville is known as a modern fanatic (and urban planner), but he tries different genres from book to book, and here he is completely hardened and reduced to an omnipresent police rumor that fits this story of the visa and the invisible perfectly. His detective is Inspector Tyador Borlu, a Beszel police officer whose investigation into the murder of a young foreigner takes him back and forth across the heavily guarded border of Ul Qoma to uncover a crime that threatens the delicate balance between city and perhaps more of Borlu`s own dissolving sense of identity. In her tale of two cities, Mieville creates a creepy fantasy and familiar world , whose mysteries don`t end with the resolution of a murder.
