Y, sobre todo, pocos son los que han inventado un universo particular, increíble e inolvidable, al nivel de China Miéville.» -Cyberdark «En 'La ciudad y la ciudad', Miéville retoma el planteamiento que ya presentó Paul Auster hace años en su 'Trilogía de Nueva York': la urbe como protagonista, una trama detectivesca y un sutil velo de posmodernidad que lo envuelve todo.» -Locus Una mujer es hallada muerta en la ciudad de Beszel, en algún lugar de los confines de Europa. Para llevar a cabo la investigación, el inspector Borlú tiene que viajar desde esta decadente ciudad a su urbe rival, idéntica e íntima vecina, la vibrante ciudad de Ul Qoma. Pero cruzar esta frontera significa emprender un viaje tan físico como psíquico, ver aquello que se mantiene invisible. Con el detective de Ul Qoma Qussim Dhatt, Borlú se ve envuelto en un submundo de nacionalistas que intentan destruir la ciudad vecina, y de unificacionistas que sueñan con convertir las dos ciudades en una sola. Mientras los detectives desvelan los secretos de la mujer asesinada, empiezan a sospechar una verdad que podría costarles algo más que sus vidas.
