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

    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.

    O avtorju

    -Dan Brown-

    Dan Brown (1964) je ameriški pisatelj, ki je diplomiral na Phillipsovi akademiji v Exetru (Phillips Exeter Academy), kje je bil kot profesor matematike zaposlen tudi njegov oče. Kasneje se je vpisal na Amherstov kolidž (Amherst College), kjer je diplomiral leta 1986. Na Phillipsovi akademiji se je naučil britanske angleščine, ker je hotel postati poklicni pisec. Ima ženo Blythe, ki je umetnostna zgodovinarka in slikarka. Njen vpliv se čuti v prodajni uspešnici Da Vincijeva šifra. Dana Browna in njegovo ženo lahko vidite tudi v filmu Da Vincijeva šifra. Brown se zelo zanima za kriptologijo, šifrirne ključe in kode, ki se neprestano pojavljajo v njegovih zgodbah.

    Dan Brown je avtor več svetovnih uspešnic, med drugim tudi Da Vincijeve šifre, ki je postala ena najbolje prodajanih knjig vseh časov. Time Magazine ga je proglasil za enega izmed 100 najbolj vplivnih oseb na svetu. Dan Brown pa je tudi pop pevec in pisec glasbenih besedil. Liki, ki nastopajo v njegovih delih, pogosto nosijo imena, ki izvirajo iz realnega sveta. Robert Langdon je dobil ime po Johnu Langdonu, umetniku, ki je naredil ambigrame za naslovnico knjige Angeli in demoni.

    "V svojih knjigah delam nekaj zelo namernega in posebnega. To je, da ko pripovedujem zgodbo, povezujem dejstva in fikcijo v moderen in učinkovit slog. Nekateri razumejo, kaj počnem in berejo moje knjige, kot bi bili na vlaku, na dolgi, udobni vožnji; spet drugi raje segajo po knjigah drugih avtorjev." - Dan Brown v Today Show, sept. 2009)
