The new high concept thriller from the author of the word-of-mouth sensation THE ONE – soon to be a Netflix original series.
Five strangers guard our secrets.
Only four can be trusted…
In the 21st century, information is king. But computers can be hacked and files can be broken into – so a unique government initiative has been born. Five ordinary people have been selected to become Minders – the latest weapon in thwarting cyberterrorism. Transformed by a revolutionary medical procedure, the country's most classified information has been taken offline and turned into genetic code implanted inside their heads.
Together, the five know every secret – the truth behind every government lie, conspiracy theory and cover up. In return, they’re given the chance to leave their problems behind and a blank slate to start their lives anew.
But not everyone should be trusted, especially when they each have secrets of their own they’ll do anything to protect…

«Una lettura coinvolgente e inquietante che ti farà pensare...»
Per trovare l’anima gemella, quella vera, non serve altro che un tampone con un campione di saliva: si tratta di un velocissimo test per scoprire a chi appartiene il tuo cuore, la persona con la quale sei geneticamente compatibile. Dieci anni dopo la scoperta di un gene che ognuno condivide soltanto con un’altra persona nel mondo, in milioni hanno fatto il test per trovare il vero amore. Mandy è divorziata e sceglie di sottoporsi all’esame per costruire finalmente la famiglia che ha sempre desiderato; Christopher è uno spietato serial killer con un macabro record da raggiungere; Nick è felicemente fidanzato, ma la sua ragazza lo convince a provare il test per curiosità; Jade, pur essendosi sottoposta all’esame, ancora non è riuscita a convincere la sua anima gemella a incontrarla; Ellie si dedica completamente alla carriera e non ha tempo per l’amore, eppure il risultato del suo test parla chiaro… Ognuno di loro, dopo aver inviato il tampone di saliva, scoprirà che non è più possibile tornare indietro. Perché persino le anime gemelle nascondono dei segreti. E alcuni di questi sono più scioccanti – e pericolosi – di altri…

Elle luttait pour découvrir la vérité… Si seulement elle avait pu ne jamais l’apprendre !
Un matin, Catherine se réveille seule dans son lit. Elle ne s’inquiète pas, convaincue que son mari est allé courir avant de se rendre au travail, comme il en a l’habitude.
Mais cette fois, Simon n’arrivera jamais au bureau. Ses baskets sont devant la porte et rien ne manque à part lui. Très vite, Catherine pressent qu’il lui est arrivé quelque chose : il n’avait aucune raison de disparaître ainsi.
En réalité, tandis que la vie de sa femme est bouleversée, Simon, bien vivant, parcourt le monde et se forge un nouveau destin. Il est le seul à savoir ce qu’il a fait, ce qui l’a poussé à partir. Les souvenirs auxquels Catherine se raccroche ne sont que mensonges, tout comme leur mariage. Ce n’est que vingt-cinq ans plus tard, quand Simon refait surface, qu’elle découvre enfin qui il est réellement…. Et il est des vérités plus difficiles à entendre que d’autres.
