Publisher Comments:

In his international blockbusters The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons, and The Lost Symbol, Dan Brown masterfully fused history, art, codes, and symbols. In this riveting new thriller, Brown returns to his element and has crafted his highest-stakes novel to date.

In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history's most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces... Dante's Inferno.

Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante's dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust... before the world is irrevocably altered.

After reading The Lost Symbol I thought it would be hard for Dan Brown to continue the suspense and emotional involvement he produced in that book but he has. I was hooked on Inferno after the first 5 pages. I read during my lunch hour and I now have a really hard time putting it away and getting back to work! The combination of history and suspense in this book make it a must read.

Every time I read a book by Dan Brown I tell myself, "This has got to be his Magnum Opus." - till the next book comes along. On reading "Inferno," I was delighted. If ever a book called educational entertainment this is it. Brown uses an interesting plot, which starts out with an attention grabber, and slowly and meticulously introduces page after page of fascinating Art, history, and literature. For many of us who read the book in a hurry the ending is really thought provoking.It serves as a new beginning as we debate an important social issue in our minds. I agree with Brown totally that "in dangerous times, there is no sin greater than inaction." This book is a must read for existing fans and new readers of Dan Brown.

Dan Brown's Robert Landon books are all fabulously rich with history, art and architecture, but I have to admit that there's a recognizable formula in the books. That is, until you reach Inferno.

While Inferno is yet another gripping, fast-paced adventure running at break neck speed through several of the great cities of Europe, that's where the similarities end. In this volume, you never know who to trust or what will happen next. Alliances and the facts shift like quicksand and the only thing that's clear is that Landon is on his own getting to the crux of this mystery.

My only criticism of Inferno is that it will take so long for the illustrated version to come out!
