World-renowned Harvard symbologist Professor Robert Langdon is summoned to a Swiss research base to analyse a cryptic symbol branded onto the chest of their top researcher. And so begins Dan Brown’s Robert Langdon series. I was hooked at the professor’s exploits, the fast pace and thrilling twists and turns as he embarks on his hunt with you in tow, intrigued by every puzzle piece. With the beautiful scientist Vittoria Vetra at his side, he uncovers a deadly vendetta against the Catholic Church by a centuries-old underground organization -- the Illuminati. I loved it, it took my breath away: the symbolism, the puzzles, the blend of history, science and religion. Even though it uses a little artistic license, I didn’t care, it didn’t detract from the story for me. I had never before read anything else like this, and I waited with baited breath for each book in the ensuing series to be published. Books in The Robert Langdon Series: 1. Angels and Demons 2.

What she uncovers sends shock waves through the corridors of power. The NSA is being held hostage – not by guns or bombs, but by a code so complex that if released would cripple U.S. intelligence.Caught in an accelerating tempest of secrecy and lies, Fletcher battles to save the agency she believes in. Betrayed on all sides, she finds herself fighting not only for her country but for her life, and in the end, for the life of the man she loves… Bizarre True Facts‘In large cities, Americans are photographed on the average of 20 times a day. Everything you charge is in a database that police, among others, can look at. Supermarkets track what you purchase and sell the information to direct-mail marketing firms.
