Un explosivo thriller histórico en la línea de El nombre de la rosa de Umberto Eco.

Limoux, año 1379. Tras una enigmática reunión, la Inquisición encarcela sin causa aparente a la familia de un humilde carpintero. El matrimonio es metódicamente interrogado, torturado, procesado y condenado por herejía en base a pruebas hábilmente manipuladas.

Ejean, el hijo mayor del matrimonio, tras su viaje a Toledo y Barcelona, regresa a su pueblo natal, donde obtiene por la fuerza la confesión de tres miembros del Tribunal de la Inquisición que condenó a los suyos y que confirmaría que sus hermanos fueron obligados a ingresar en calidad de oblatos en la abadía de Sant Miquel de Cuixà.

Abrigando la esperanza de encontrarlos, Ejean se trasladará secretamente hasta esa abadía, donde consigue introducirse en ella con la ayuda de un misterioso religioso benedictino. Dentro de esos muros será testigo de las conspiraciones internas en pos de El legado del diablo, un libro en clave que profetiza el futuro hasta la llegada del fin del mundo.

La incesante búsqueda de sus hermanos le llevará, finalmente, a desvelar la siniestra identidad de quien se hace llamar el Siervo de Dios y la razón última de la intriga urdida para asesinar a sus padres.
