The story encompasses both poetry and prose to convey the sentiments of the protagonist. It begins with the protagonist in deep introspection after having read an article in the newspaper.
Years ago, on the eve of his prospective stardom, tragedy strikes as his father dies suddenly and skeletons begin to spill out of the family closet. Soon the world turns cruel for the young entrepreneur as friends and contacts turn away. In the hiatus, the blueprints of his wonderful future are lost.
The newspaper article mentions an invention and the protagonist painfully realizes that it is based upon an idea, which was stolen from him years ago. Enraged, he plots a well-constructed revenge, which includes a murder. With an unshakable belief in his own cleverness, he creates a puzzle that is meant to baffle the investigators.
When the investigation draws towards its end, a police detective who was on him since the beginning decides to give him a chance to realize that his ‘flawless puzzle’ is not so perfect. As the truth stares him in the face, the old man adds a final stroke as he designs to extricate and redeem himself in a dignified manner assumed fit for a gentleman.
