‘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.


  1. The wait was on after Lost Symbol for Dan Brown's next. After a lot of speculation, news was out among Dan Brown fans that this one would be an exceptional thriller on bioterrorism.
    Well, what Dan Brown finally delivers is more like a tourist guide than a thriller - exotic places of Florence, Venice, Istanbul... and a lot of loose ends.
    The first 250 pages lag - and are filled with the regular chases, bullet shots and one villain out to ruin the world. But things start picking up at the 300th page! And then Dan Brown gets into his element - turnarounds are what he is best at.
    When you finally finish the book, you feel incomplete - for one part of the story is left unaddressed. But perhaps, the unfinished end is also the best part of this edition of Brown.

  2. Thank you for that. I have heard mixed reviews on this book as well. It is always good to hear what people think!
