Enter the labyrinthine world of internationally bestselling author Dan Brown with his first two spellbinding thrillers featuring Robert Langdon:
Angels and Demons
When a groundbreaking scientist is found brutally murdered, world renowned Harvard professor Robert Langdon is summoned to identify the mysterious symbol seared on to the dead man's chest. His conclusion, that it is the work of the Illuminati, a secret brotherhood presumed long dead, leads him to Rome, where against the backdrop of a papal election the Illuminati look set to renew their bitter vendetta against their sworn enemy, the Catholic Church . . .
The Da Vinci Code
Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call while on business in Paris: the elderly curator of the Louvre has been violently murdered inside the museum. Alongside the body, police have found a series of baffling codes. As Langdon begins to sort through the bizarre riddles, he is stunned to find a trail that leads to the works of Leonardo da Vinci - and suggests the answer to an age-old mystery which will take him into the vaults of history . . .Klappentext:
Worldwide praise for Dan Brown:
'Wow...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'
NEW YORK TIMES
'Brown's novel adroitly blends the chase-scene stuffed thrillers of Robert Ludlum and the learned romps of Umberto Eco...For anyone who wants more brain-food than thrillers normally provide'
'Exceedingly clever...Both fascinating and fun...a considerable achievement'
'A gripping bestseller...Brown has cracked the bestseller code'
'A heart-racing thriller. This story has so many twists that it would be a sin to reveal too much of the plot in advance. Let's just say that if this novel doesn't get your pulse racing, you need to check your meds'
SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
'Some genuinely fascinating insights into Grail history make this the best thriller FHM has read in yonks'
'A thundering, tantalizing, extremely smart fun ride. Brown doesn't slow down his tremendously powerful narrative engine despite transmitting several doctorates' worth of fascinating history and learned speculation'
