Texte du rabat

Encounters with a sinister Vatican priest and then a mysterious nun convince Ross to seek salvation in the four-and-a-half-centuries-old manuscript, which chronicles the ill-fated discovery of a mythic, fabulous garden, deep in the jungles of the New World:an Eden so terrible and miraculous it rewrites the book of Genesis and defies all reason.



Résumé
It's not a myth. It exists. Find it.

Ambitious geologist Ross Kelly has it all:a lucrative career searching for oil across the world and a beautiful, brilliant wife, Lauren, pregnant with their first child. But when Lauren, a Yale academic, deciphers the university's mysterious Voynich manuscript, which has confounded experts for centuries, everything changes.

An attempt to steal her translation of the Voynich leaves Lauren and their unborn child hovering on the brink of death, and Ross in the depths of despair. Encounters with a sinister Vatican priest and then a mysterious nun convince Ross to seek salvation in the four-and-a-half-centuries-old manuscript, which chronicles the ill-fated discovery of a mythic, fabulous garden, deep in the jungles of the New World:an Eden so terrible and miraculous it rewrites the book of Genesis and defies all reason.

Although everyone tells him the story is surely an allegory, the possibility of the garden's existence offers Ross the only hope of saving Lauren and their unborn child.With a ragbag group of confederates, each with their own motivations, he decides to seek the garden out before it's too late.

But he is not alone.

Racing against time, a lethal assassin and a fanatical priest desperate to claim the miraculous garden for his church, Ross's quest will lead him eventually to a place that might challenge everything he ever thought about the source of life on earth.
