El arma m&ás poderosa creada por el hombre, una organizaci&ón secreta sedienta de venganza... y apenas unas horas para evitar el desastre.

La eterna pugna entre ciencia y religi&ón se ha convertido en una guerra muy real.

En un laboratorio de m&áxima seguridad, aparece asesinado un cient&ífico con un extra&ño s&ímbolo grabado a fuego en su pecho. Para el profesor Robert Langdon no hay duda: los Illuminati, los hombres enfrentados a la Iglesia desde los tiempos de Galileo, han regresado. Y esta vez disponen de la m&ás mort&ífera arma que ha creado la humanidad, un artefacto con el que pueden ganar la batalla final contra su eterno enemigo. Acompa&ñado de una joven cient&ífica y un audaz capit&án de la Guardia Suiza, Langdon comienza una carrera contra reloj, en una b&úsqueda desesperada por los rincones m&ás secretos de El Vaticano. Necesitar&á todo su conocimiento para descifrar las claves ocultas que los Illuminati han dejado a trav&és de los siglos en manuscritos y templos, y todo su coraje para vencer al despiadado asesino que siempre parece llevarle la delantera.

El autor de El C&ódigo Da Vinci nos arrastra a una espiral de acci&ón sin pausa, un impactante thriller donde se suceden las sorpresas y se revelan algunos de los m&ás oscuros enigmas de la historia. Fuerzas que han permanecido&  ocultas durante siglos y que ahora planean destruir la Iglesia... literalmente.
