Maître Cornut était marqué par le Destin. En moins de deux mois, il avait commis dix tentatives de suicide - sans la moindre raison et sans le moindre résultat. Aussi extravagant que cela puisse paraître, Maître Cornut sentait bien qu'une puissance télépathique obscure et maléfique le poussait à la mort... Et puis il y eut cette épidémie de petite vérole, avec ses effets dévastateurs sur des millions de vies humaines. Mais pourquoi donc - plusieurs siècles après la découverte du vaccin - n'y avait-il pas de remède efficace ? Quelqu'un ou Quelque chose avait gravement perturbé la vie civilisée. Le monde était au bord de la catastrophe. Et la manie suicidaire de Maître Cornut était-elle l'indice ou la clé de la conspiration la plus cauchemardesque jamais ourdie contre la planète Terre? ( )
