The book enfolds like a multi-viewpoint novel, organised in a series of short stories from the perspectives of characters that alternate and- in the course of events- cross paths and come into conflict, gradually forming an intricate web of ties and crossed plots.
Inside a court of miracles, represented by an unspecified district on the outskirts of an unnamed city, various characters move in a suburban world of violence and crime. The District- with a capital letter, as it is known to its inhabitants- is the true protagonist of the novel, inside which its ‘heroes’ move: hitmen, conmen, jackals, policemen corrupted by money or by power. A place that destroys and recreates in its image anyone who inhabits it, even if they desperately try to stay clean. Through the adventures of Max, Tony, Walter, Laura and many more, we walk the streets of the District, coming into contact with the inner structure of civilised society, on which is built the everyday hypocrisy of living peacefully.
