Dom Cobb is a skilled thief, the absolute best in the dangerous art of extraction, stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state, when the mind is at its most vulnerable. Cobb's rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved. Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption. One last job could give him his life back but only if he can accomplish the impossible--inception. Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of specialists have to pull off the reverse: their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one. If they succeed, it could be the perfect crime. But no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team for the dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. An enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming

"Il y a huit ans, Batman a disparu dans la nuit : lui qui était un héros est alors devenu un fugitif. S'accusant de la mort du procureur-adjoint Harvey Dent, le Chevalier Noir a tout sacrifié au nom de ce que le commissaire Gordon et lui-même considéraient être une noble cause. Et leurs actions conjointes se sont avérées efficaces pour un temps puisque la criminalité a été éradiquée à Gotham City grâce à l'arsenal de lois répressif initié par Dent. Mais c'est un chat - aux intentions obscures - aussi rusé que voleur qui va tout bouleverser. À moins que ce ne soit l'arrivée à Gotham de Bane, terroriste masqué, qui compte bien arracher Bruce à l'exil qu'il s'est imposé. Pourtant, même si ce dernier est prêt à endosser de nouveau la cape et le casque du Chevalier Noir, Batman n'est peut-être plus de taille à affronter Bane..." [Source : jaquette]
