Bruges, 1441.
Arborant un air mystérieux, l'index posé sur les lèvres, Jan Van Eyck avait chuchoté : Petit, il faut savoir se taire, surtout si l'on sait.
Qui pouvait se douter alors que, derrière la recommandation du maître flamand, se cachait le Grand Secret? À travers les brumes de Flandre et la luminosité éclatante de la Toscane, un enfant de treize ans va se retrouver confronté à une effroyable conspiration. Un monde occulte, empli de ténèbres qu'il lui faudra affronter avec l'innocence pour toute arme. Pourquoi veut-on sa mort? Que sait-il qu'il n'aurait jamais dû connaître? Pour quelle raison des peintres de génie, des apprentis, des orfèvres, des penseurs, des architectes sont-ils la cible de meurtriers invisibles? Quels sont les fils mystérieux qui les relient entre eux et les tirent insensiblement au bord de l'abîme?
Autant de questions auxquelles l'enfant de Bruges devra s'efforcer de répondre s'il ne veut pas disparaître à son tour dans la nuit.
