To survive, Langdon must work out who it is. And then he must answer the next question – why?
SEEK AND YOU WILL FIND
Florence: 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. Only Langdon’s knowledge of the 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 The Inferno to guide them, they must decipher a sequence of codes buried deep within some of the Renaissance’s most celebrated artworks to find the answers to a puzzle which may, or may not, help them save the world from a terrifying threat…
When it was published in the summer of 2013, Inferno became a global sensation, selling over 15 million copies in hardcover. This new and exclusive illustrated edition illuminates the sights and cities which form the backdrop to Dan Brown’s most thought-provoking and compelling novel yet, and reveals the rich tapestry of history, art and literature which inspired its narrative.

And when Langdon's revered mentor is brutally kidnapped, he realizes his only chance to save his old friend is to accept this sinister summons...
All that was familiar is transformed into a shadowy, clandestine world in which Masonic secrets and never-before-seen revelations seem to be leading him to a single impossible and inconceivable truth. As Langdon will discover, there is nothing more extraordinary or shocking than the secret which hides in plain sight...
