The astonishing new thriller from the bestselling author of The Da Vinci Code and The Lost Symbol.

‘Seek 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 explain 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 behind its historic facade can save them from the clutches of their unknown pursuers.

With only a few lines from Dante's dark and epic masterpiece, The Inferno, to guide them, they must decipher a sequence of codes buried deep within some of the most celebrated artefacts of the Renaissance – sculptures, paintings, buildings – to find the answers to a puzzle which may, or may not, help them save the world from a terrifying threat…

Set against an extraordinary 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 that will grab you from page one and not let you go until you close the book.

    Comments about Inferno:

    In typical Dan Brown fashion, it's a great story that should have been written in about 2/3 of what it was.
    I love Dan Brown's stories but find his writing style irksome, he is not good at placing you in the world of the characters.
    I would recommend this book if you have been to some of the sites in it, or re-reading it if you have been inspired to visit them but, as someone who uses a book to escape, it's not for those without the real life experiences.

        Comments about Inferno:

        I did enjoy this book, which I whipped through just before the movie came out, and I am looking forward to seeing on the big screen. I did find the descriptions of buildings etc a bit heavy at times and not really relevant to the story. Happy for the additional information where it ties into the storyline (eg to do with the artworks or Dante) but would prefer most of the rest to be left out. It was a scary storyline that definitely made me think about the future of our planet and what has already been created that we don't know about.

              Fast paced read but still easy to follow. Didn't have to re-read pages to keep up with the fast moving plot. Not too many characters to remember. Fabulous exotic locations with interesting historical facts thrown in but so as to entertain not to lecture.

                Dan Brown

                Dan Brown is the author of numerous bestselling novels, including the worldwide number one, The Da Vinci Code – one of the best selling novels of all time. His four novels were in the Sunday Times bestsellers list for a whole year and were the top four bestselling novels of 2005. They have been translated and published in more than 40 languages around the world.

                Dan is a graduate of Amherst College and Phillips Exeter Academy, where he spent time as an English teacher before turning his efforts fully to writing. In 1996, his interest in code-breaking and covert government agencies led him to write his first novel, Digital Fortress, which quickly became a number one bestselling eBook. Set within the clandestine National Security Agency, the novel explores the fine line between civilian privacy and national security. Dan Brown’s follow-up techno-thriller, Deception Point, centred on similar issues of morality in politics, national security, and classified technology.

                The son of a Presidential Award winning math professor and of a professional sacred musician, Dan grew up surrounded by the paradoxical philosophies of science and religion. These complementary perspectives served as inspiration for his acclaimed novel Angels & Demons – a science vs. religion thriller set within a Swiss physics lab and Vatican City.

                Dan Brown’s wife Blythe – an art historian and painter – collaborates on his research and accompanies him on his frequent research trips, including to Paris, where they spent time in the Louvre for his thriller, The Da Vinci Code.

                The Da Vinci Code has sold some 70 million copies worldwide. Both The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons have been adapted for film by Columbia Pictures.

                His fifth novel, The Lost Symbol, featuring Robert Langdon, was released in September 2009.
