Summary

Un enigma del pasado y un misterio del presente se unen en un apasionante juego de trampas.

A finales del siglo XV un viejo maestro flamenco introduce en uno de sus  cuadros, en forma de partida de ajedrez, la clave de un secreto que pudo cambiar la historia de Europa.

Cinco siglos después, una joven restauradora de arte, un anticuario  homosexual y un excéntrico jugador de ajedrez unen sus fuerzas para  tratar de resolver el enigma. La investigación les conducirá a través de  una apasionante pesquisa en la que los movimientos del juego irán abriendo las puertas de un misterio que acabará por envolver a todos sus protagonistas.

La tabla de Flandes es un apasionante juego de trampas e  inversiones -pintura, música, literatura, historia, lógica matemática- que Arturo Pérez-Reverte encaja con diabólica destreza.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

A fifteenth-century painting by a Flemish master is about to be auctioned when Julia, a young art restorer, discovers a peculiar inscription hidden in a corner: Who killed the knight? In the painting, the Duke of Flanders and his knight are locked in a game of chess, and a dark lady lurks mysteriously in the background.

Julia is determined to solve the five-hundred-year-old murder, but as she begins to look for clues, several of her friends in the art world are brutally murdered in quick succession. Messages left with the bodies suggest a crucial connection between the chess game in the painting, the knight's murder, the sordid underside of the contemporary art world, and the latest deaths. Just when all of the players in the mystery seem to be pawns themselves, events race toward a shocking conclusion. A thriller like no other, The Flanders Panel presents a tantalizing puzzle for any connoisseur of mystery, chess, art, and history.
