An ancient secret brotherhood, a devastating new weapon of destruction, an unthinkable target

World-renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to a Swiss research facility to analyze a cryptic symbol seared into the chest of a murdered physicist. What he discovers is unimaginable: a deadly vendetta against the Catholic Church by a centuries-old underground organization—the Illuminati. Desperate to save the Vatican from a powerful time bomb, Langdon joins forces in Rome with the beautiful and mysterious scientist Vittoria Vetra. Together they embark on a frantic hunt through sealed crypts, dangerous catacombs, deserted cathedrals, and the most secretive vault on earth: the long-forgotten Illuminati lair.

Listener Opinions

    " Good story and slightly different from the movie. Robert langdon series is very fun to experience. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brendan Nicholls | 2/14/2014

    " The book becomes to much by the end. The ending is drivel "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeff | 2/14/2014

    " I try Dan brown. I tried with davinci code and deception point as well. But I can't stay interested in the same main plot line, the same main character, with the same religious backdrop. Angela and demons was and is just another crack at the same Masonic / catholic / treasure hunt that brown is so fond of. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Phoenix | 2/14/2014

    " An outstanding read and despite the number of highly pointed and critical commentaries, also enlightening. Dan Brown never professed to hold immortal truths but provides the groundwork for expanded introspection. This was an interesting page turning novel dusted with bits and pieces of science and theology to provide an enjoyable and suspenseful thriller. I liked it as I have ll Dan Browns works. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacque | 2/11/2014

    " Any 569 page book that sucks me in enough to read under a week deserves 4 stars. After the recent events with the Catholic Church and the changing of Popes this book was very relevant. I enjoyed learning more about the process. It was a bit more PG-13 than I would like (torture, sexual fantasies), but they were easy to gloss over and enjoy the rest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Divya Niveditha | 1/31/2014

    " Good book , well depicted , makes U imagine things the way it is ...In short its awesome "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karolina | 1/30/2014

    " I don't understand why people hate this book so much. its a great page turner. very engaging. couldn' t put it racing every page, science and religion's comparison made it even more interesting, the feeling of unfolding misteries of truth between science and,faith and human brutality made it somehow fascinating. however, I put 3 stars instead of 4 as in the end I rolled my eyes and did think"come on, THAT'S the beginning of it ALL?" ... overall, a great read, but Dan brown is far away from making good plot in the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hayfa | 1/27/2014

    " Integrated novel ... Terms of elements. Nature of the narrative. Prowess in the description of historical places as you feel like you are in the heart of the event. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda Mano | 1/20/2014

    " an excellent novel which brought the perfect image of the Vatican through words. each chapter had its own charm which made me spellbound. the unpredicted end is the the highlight of the author's technique. "

    " The best in Langdon series. A solid story with incredible speed that runs the reader through the Vatican, with great use of science vs religion, ancient ambigrams and famous artists. The first of the Langdon books only fails for me near the end. The rest of this book is top notch "
