Please check the synopsis below and let me know if this looks fine or not. Thanks.

 

ALEXANDRA, 48 BC : Julius Caesar followed Pompey to Alexandria and saw the Library of Alexandria get destroyed in a fire.

 

GERMANY, 1945 : The head of the Nazi Archeological Division, Ahnenerbe, killed his wife and children and then committed suicide to keep a secret out of the hands of the Nazi party.

 

Present Day, London : Sam, an Indian student of Archeology, witnesses the murder of his professor in a Cafe. Before his death, Professor Hedley tells Sam to find a notebook, a notebook connected to his deceased parents. This starts a chain of events that started to change Sam's life in an instant. Helped by an ex US MARSOC personnel Mark and a beautiful young NSA Cryptologist Eva, he races from London to India, from Denmark to Germany to Himalayas to find the truth behind the death of his parents and to complete their task of finding the lost Library of Alexandria.

But other forces are also pursuing him to find the Library who will stop at nothing to win the race. Can Sam find it?

This looks like the type of summary one would put in a query letter. A synopsis should tell the main character's story from the beginning to the end. Leave out subplots, minor events and the names of secondary characters. And yes, in a proper synopsis you must say how the story ends.
