Synopses & Reviews
Harvard professor of symbology Robert Langdon awakens in an Italian hospital, disoriented and with no recollection of the past thirty-six hours, including the origin of the macabre object hidden in his belongings. With a relentless female assassin trailing them through Florence, he and his resourceful doctor, Sienna Brooks, are forced to flee. Embarking on a harrowing journey, they must unravel a series of codes, which are the work of a brilliant scientist whose obsession with the end of the world is matched only by his passion for one of the most influential masterpieces ever written, Dante Alighieri's The Inferno.
Dan Brown has raised the bar yet again, combining classical Italian art, history, and literature with cutting-edge science in this captivating thriller.

"Brown isn’t just a novelist; he’s a crossover pop culture sensation....Inferno isthe kind of satisfying escapist read that summers were made for." The Boston Globe
"One hell of a good read....As close as a book can come to a summertime cinematic blockbuster." USA Today
"Fast, clever, well-informed....Dan Brown is the master of the intellectual cliffhanger." The Wall Street Journal
"A book-length scavenger hunt....Jam-packed with tricks." The New York Times
