The novel is one in a new series detailing the adventures of Robert Langdon, a professor of religious symbols and iconography at Harvard University. As is characteristic of Dan Brown’s novels, many aspects of human thought interweave to fill out the narrative, including ideas gleaned from science, religion, history, art, and architecture. In the new book, the professor will be challenged to apply all his theoretical knowledge in practice in order to solve the secrets of the Guggenheim Museum, the Palacio Real, and the Cathedral of Sevilla, and his destiny will take him not only to Barcelona, but also to Bilbao, Sevilla, and Madrid.
The world premier of the book, to be published by Editorial Planeta publishing house, will take place on October 5. On this day, the novel will appear in bookshops in Spain, Great Britain, the United States, and Canada. The company also plans to publish this novel in Catalan under the auspices of Columna Edicions.
