Pour Ben Hope, l’ancien soldat d’élite, l’affaire est loin d’être aussi simple. En effet, quelques jours plus tôt, le musicien avait révélé à Ben qu’il possédait une partition perdue depuis des siècles. Or, ce manuscrit du légendaire Jean-Sébastien Bach est la seule chose que les cambrioleurs ont emportée.<br /><br />La piste des assassins conduit Ben jusqu’à des contrées particulièrement hostiles. Pourquoi des mafieux serbes s’intéressent-ils autant à cette partition&#xa0; ? Qu’est-ce que ce «&#xa0; manuscrit Bach&#xa0; » a de si particulier&#xa0; pour que, au fil des siècles, on se soit entre-tué pour le posséder&#xa0; ? Aujourd’hui, seul Ben peut arrêter l’effrayant engrenage qui s’est mis en marche...<br /><br />Haletant, machiavélique, envoûtant&#xa0; : le nouveau best-seller de Scott Mariani.
