"Dean Corso est un chercheur de livres rares pour collectionneurs fortunes. Sa réputation lui vaut d'tre engagé par un éminent bibliophile, passionné de démonologie, Boris Balkan, qui lui demande de traquer les deux derniers exemplaires du légendaire manuel d'invocation satanique, "Les Neuf Portes du Royaume des Ombres". Corso relève le défi. De New York a Tolède, de Paris à Cintra, il s'enfonce dans un labyrinthe semé de pièges et de tentations. Il va peu à peu décrypter les énigmes du livre maudit et découvrir le véritable enjeu de sa mission." --[allocine.fr]
