Overview

Nueva York, 1972. Catherine Velis, aficionada a las matemáticas y al ajedrez, trabaja en una auditoría como experta en informática. La firma la destina a Argelia, pero, antes de partir, una vidente le lee las líneas de la mano y le advierte de que un grave peligro se cierne sobre ella. Poco después, un marchante de antigüedades hace a Cat una misteriosa oferta: un cliente suyo está intentando reunir las piezas de un antiguo juego de ajedrez que presuntamente se encuentra en Argelia. Si Cat le consigue esas piezas, obtendrá a cambio una generosa recompensa. Sur de Francia, 1790. Mireille de Rémy y su prima Valentine son dos novicias de la abadía de Montglane. Francia arde en las llamas de la revolución que, entre otros proyectos, pretende aniquilar a la Iglesia y hacerse con sus tesoros. Enterradas desde hace mil años bajo el suelo de la abadía se encuentran las piezas de un ajedrez legendario, que perteneció a Carlomagno. Quien consiga reunir dichas piezas adquirirá un poder ilimitado. Y para mantenerlas fuera del alcance de quienes pudieran abusar de él, Mireille y Valentine deberán repartirlas por todos los confines del mundo. «Una de las pocas narradoras contemporáneas que supo salpicar sus obras de las dosis justas de esoterismo, historia oculta y misterio, mucho antes de que esos ingredientes fueran mezclados en otros cócteles notables.» Javier Sierra

    One of my favorite stories.

    I'm adding my request to the others. Where is the English version? This is one of my favorite books, I can't say how many times I have read it and recommended it to others.
