About this item

La bióloga soviética Irina Gránina contempla el derrumbe del comunismo y, con él, la rebeldía de su hija, primera víctima del triunfo del capitalismo. En el otro extremo del mundo, Jennifer Moore, funcionaria del Fondo Monetario Internacional, lucha con su ambicioso marido y con su hermana Allison, su exacto reverso,activista contra la globalización. Por último, Éva Horváth, genio de la informática, se empeña en descubrir los secretos de la inteligencia, siempre torturada por sus cambios de ánimo y sus múltiples y cada vez más celosos amantes.

Relato científico, fábula detectivesca, suma de géneros, esta novela es una fascinante exploración de la avaricia humana a la vez que un despiadado examen de la pasión y el egoísmo que dominan a nuestra especie.
