Synopsis

Dan Brown’s mega-bestseller is now available for a new generation of readers. This young adult adaptation is the perfect way to get ready for Origin, the latest novel featuring the character Robert Langdon. It will remind fans everywhere why the New York Times calls The Da Vinci Code “blockbuster perfection.”

The greatest conspiracy of the past two thousand years is about to unravel.
 
Robert Langdon, professor of religious symbology at Harvard, is in Paris to give a lecture. At the reception that follows, he is scheduled to meet with a revered curator from the world-famous Louvre museum. But the curator never shows up, and later that night Langdon is awakened by authorities and told that the curator has been found dead. He is then taken to the Louvre—the scene of the crime—where he finds out that baffling clues have been left behind.
 
Thus begins a race against time, as Robert Langdon becomes a suspect and, with the help of French cryptologist Sophie Neveu, must decipher a mystifying trail of clues that the two come to realize have been left specifically for them. If Robert and Sophie cannot solve the puzzle in time, an ancient truth could be lost forever—and they themselves might end up as collateral damage.
 
Praise for the adult edition of The Da Vinci Code
 
“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 and coaxing them through hoops.”—The New York Times
 
“A new master of smart thrills. A pulse-quickening, brain-teasing adventure.”—People

About the Author

New Hampshire born author, Dan Brown, is most famous for his tremendously successful novel, The Da Vinci Code. He relates the treasure hunt sort of story within a 24-hour period of time, using themes of keys, symbols, codes, cryptography, and conspiracy theories. They also many times feature historical themes and controversial Christianity motifs. His parents involved their children in the family dynamics of using codes, cyphers, crossword puzzles, and treasure hunts to tie together math, music, and languages. Brown's growing up years gave an excellent base for his future writings.

Brown was inspired to be a writer of thrillers after reading Sidney Sheldon's novel The Doomsday Conspiracy. He became a full-time writer in 1996. Angels and Demons was his second book published and was the first novel to include the lead character, Robert Langdon. His first few novels had very little success, but the fourth novel, The Da Vinci Code proved to be one of the most popular books of all time. With that success, his first three books also became very well received with all four novels being listed on the New York Times best sellers list at one time! The next novel, The Lost Symbol, sold over 1,000,000 copies its first day.

Since Brown's books are heavily researched, it would sometimes take two years to finish a novel. In 2006 The Da Vinci Code and Inferno were adapted to screenplays, and were very controversial. Brown has stated that he has potentially twelve books in line for the future.
