Overview

El animal que aparecía en la imagen era más que una serpiente: tenía escamas y colmillos exagerados, se asemejaba más a un dragón . . . Era una imagen siniestra que rememoraba un miedo primario, una copia amarillenta y desgastada que despedía maldad. La búsqueda de un oscuro secreto, escondido entre las páginas de un libro del 1700, llevará a una genetista y un agente de la CIA a embarcarse en una aventura mortal que les obligará a viajar por Europa, América y Asia, en un frenético periplo. Nápoles, 1750. Tres hombres armados irrumpen en el palacio de un supuesto marqués. El príncipe de San Severo lo acusa de ser un impostor y exige conocer un secreto que sólo él tiene en su poder. En la lucha que sigue, el falso marqués escapa dejando tras de sí un palacio en llamas y un príncipe furioso y obsesionado con encontrar a su presa. Bagdad, 2003. En una misión de rutina, una unidad del ejército realiza un descubrimiento horripilante: un modernísimo laboratorio secreto en el que han muerto decenas de personas, víctimas de espantosos experimentos. El misterioso científico al que perseguían, un hombre que, según se cree, está trabajando en un arma biológica, huye llevándose consigo la sorprendente verdad de su trabajo. Pero deja una pista sorrpendente: el Ouroboros, un símbolo que representa una serpiente que se muerde la cola. Cuando el poder de dicho símbolo sale a la luz, desvelando los siglos de destrucción que ha ido dejando a su paso, surge una mujerinocente en el centro de una conspiración que podría cambiar el mundo para siempre.
