‘Are seeking and ye shall find.’
With these words echoing in his head, eminent Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon awakes in a hospital bed with no recollection of where he is or how he got there. Nor can he give an explanation for the origin of the macabre object that is found hidden in his belongings. A threat to his life will propel him and a young doctor, Sienna Brooks, into a breakneck chase across the city of Florence. Only Langdon’s knowledge of hidden passageways and ancient secrets that lie in the back of its historic facade can save them from the clutches of their unknown pursuers. With only some lines from Dante’s dark and epic masterpiece, The Inferno, to guide them, they will have to decipher a sequence of codes buried deep within one of the most most celebrated artefacts of the Renaissance – sculptures, paintings, buildings – to find the answers to a puzzle which may, or won’t, help them save the world from a terrifying threat. Set against an bizarre landscape inspired by one of history’s most ominous literary classics, Inferno is Dan Brown’s most compelling and thought-provoking novel yet, a breathless race-against-time thriller to be able to grab you from page one and not can help you go until you close the book.
