Un asombroso thriller histórico de la pluma de un escritor que también es un científico y que es un apasionado de Leonardo da Vinci.

A los 500 años de la muerte de Leonardo da Vinci, Marco Malvaldi revive al hombre que studió todos los aspectos de la creatividad humana.
Milán, 1493: después de la muerte de Lorenzo de Medici, en Italia soplan vientos de guerra. El rey francés Carlos VIII cruza los Alpes para sustraerles a los aragoneses el Reino de Nápoles. En Milán, Ludovico Sforza, el Moro, es regente en nombre de su pequeño y enfermizo sobrino. En medio de estos juegos de poder, aparece la invención novelesca que ve de frente el genio de Leonardo y el cinismo de Ludovico, amante de la hermosa Cecilia Gallerani, de quien, poco antes, Leonardo ha hecho el celebérrimo retrato. El gran genio debe cumplir con el encargo que le ha hecho Ludovico: una gran estatua ecuestre de su padre, Francisco Sforza, una obra sumamente difícil, pues, pese a la gran habilidad de Leonardo, la fusión en bronce de tal obra plantea varios problemas de realización.
De improviso, en el centro del patio del Castillo, encuentran un cadáver aparentemente sin heridas y sin indicios de alguna enfermedad. Leonardo examina el cuerpo, y descubre que se trata de un ex alumno suyo sospechoso de falsario. El asunto se complica: entran en juego religiosos, políticos embajadores, emisarios del rey de Francia, el yerno de Ludovico, la madre de Leonardo.




In the spring of 1482, Leonardo da Vinci arrives in Milan to dedicate himself to all of the infinite activities that his genius is capable of: irrigation projects for the countryside, incredible animated theatrical sets for court celebrations, and timeless paintings such as the portrait, Lady with an Ermine. But above all, Leonardo receives from Ludovico Sforza a request to create an equestrian monument for his father, Francesco Sforza. He acceptes the challenge, deciding to create something incredible: he imagines a galloping horse in bronze that will stand more than seven meters high. One night as he is working by candlelight on this complicated endeavor, there is a knock on his door. The duke is in need of his help regarding a delicate matter: one of the young men in his entourage has been found dead under murky circumstances, and people are beginning to talk, saying that his death was a divine punishment.

Leonardo would rather not become involved and attempts to avoid it, but it does not take him long to understand that the duke knows exactly where he spends his nights: in the twisted hallways beneath the hospital or in the vicinity of the cemetary, dissecting cadavers in order to study the human anatomy via amethod that is certainly not legal… This is only the beginning of an intense investigation for which Leonardo will note his thoughts anddiscoveries only in his most secret of notebooks, the one he does not show even to his trusted pupil Salaì and which he keeps hidden under his clothing and close to his heart. 

This is the very same notebook that many, for hundreds of years, have desired to know the contents.
