Description

Harvard professor Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call while on business in Paris: the elderly curator of the Louvre has been brutally murdered inside the museum. Alongside the body, police have found a series of baffling codes.

As Langdon and a gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, begin to sort through the bizarre riddles, they are stunned to find a trail that leads to the works of Leonardo Da Vinci – and suggests the answer to a mystery that stretches deep into the vault of history.

Unless Langdon and Neveu can decipher the labyrinthine code and quickly assemble the pieces of the puzzle, a stunning historical truth will be lost forever…

Origin, the spellbinding new Robert Langdon thriller from Dan Brown, is out now

Publisher Review

A gripping bestseller... Brown has cracked the bestseller code * Guardian * Brown's novel adroitly blends the chase-stuffed thrillers of Robert Ludlum and the learned romps of Umberto Eco... For anyone who wants more brain food than thrillers normally provide * The Sunday Times * Exceedingly clever... Both fascinating and fun... A considerable achievement * The Washington Post * Blockbuster perfection... An exhilaratingly brainy thriller. Not since the advent of Harry Potter has an author so flagrantly delighted in leading readers on a breathless chase * The New York Times * Fascinating and absorbing... A great, riveting read. I loved this book -- Harlan Coben
