The spellbinding new Robert Langdon novel from the author of The Da Vinci Code.

'Fans will not be disappointed' The Times

Robert Langdon, Harvard professor of symbology and religious iconology, arrives at the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao to attend the unveiling of a discovery that “will change the face of science forever”. The evening’s host is his friend and former student, Edmond Kirsch, a forty-year-old tech magnate whose dazzling inventions and audacious predictions have made him a controversial figure around the world. This evening is to be no exception: he claims he will reveal an astonishing scientific breakthrough to challenge the fundamentals of human existence.

But Langdon and several hundred other guests are left reeling when the meticulously orchestrated evening is blown apart before Kirsch’s precious discovery can be revealed. With his life under threat, Langdon is forced into a desperate bid to escape, along with the museum’s director, Ambra Vidal. Together they flee to Barcelona on a perilous quest to locate a cryptic password that will unlock Kirsch’s secret.

In order to evade a tormented enemy who is one step ahead of them at every turn, Langdon and Vidal must navigate labyrinthine passageways of hidden history and ancient religion. On a trail marked only by enigmatic symbols and elusive modern art, Langdon and Vidal uncover the clues that will bring them face-to-face with a world-shaking truth that has remained buried – until now.

    I did read all of Dan Brown’s books and liked them all. This one although a different story outline as The Da Vinci Code and less symbols, anagrams and so on, ist on similar high level of suspense and secrets. I did enjoy it through the last page.

    Dan Brown did it again! This book will leave you awake until the early morning, reading "just one more chapter" before going to bed. Like all of the books featuring his Robert Langdon character, you will not be able to set this book down for long. The story is well crafted, carefully researched and absolutely compelling! I could not be more content with this book in every aspect.
