Matea Boyter's insight:

The Paris Enigma, the start of the story takes place in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The main character called Sigmundo Salvatrio is working as an assistant for the famed detective Renato Craig. Craig was a founding member of a very elite and exclusive group of detectives through out the world called, The Twelve. As the story moves forward we see the competitiveness between Sigmundo and the other assistants of Renato Craig's. Even further along we see the stories setting change and move across the world to to Paris, France. And at this time the Worlds Fair is taking place as well as the building and opening of the Eiffel Tower.

One major scope and theme in the book we see from the beginning is the competitiveness between the many assistants of Renato Craig. In chapter four of the first part of the book, the author introduces this competitiveness and the many assistants needs to impress their teacher and boss. "Deep down, we knew that if Craig had really set this all up in order to find an assistant, he had already made his choice. As much as Trivak tried to dampen his sarcasm and impress his teacher, it was Alarcon who was the favorite." (pg. 15, De Santis). I feel this shows the scope very well by having Sigmundo explain the competitiveness he and Trivak feel. Another theme of the book is murder and finding the criminal. "Those easily identifiable criminals-- the ones with prominent ears and protruding eye sockets and enormous hands, for them there's the police. For the invisible murderer, the murderer that could be any one of us, that's for me." (pg. 11, De Santis). This quote said by Renato Craig shows the detectives importance. The last major theme of the book is the Worlds Fair and the building and opening of the Eiffel Tower. "In spite the fact that the tower was almost finished, there was one enemy that had not given up harassing the builders with anonymous letters and minor attacks." (pg. 57 De Santis). This last quote shows the connections between the Eiffel tower and the detectives.
