American thriller-fiction writer Dan Brown released details on his upcoming novel, Origin last Tuesday, June 27. It features the well-loved Harvard symbology professor Robert Langdon.
The ‘Da Vinci Code’ author unveiled the thriller’s cover and plot setting in a book trailer.
“I secretly spent a lot of time in Spain over the last few years,” Brown shared in his Facebook post.
Set in four cities of Spain – Madrid, Seville, Barcelona, and Bilbao, Origin promises to tackle two questions: “Where do we come from?” and “Where are we going?”
The official synopsis on Dan Brown’s website reads: “Robert Langdon, Harvard professor of symbology and religious iconology, arrives at the ultramodern Guggenheim Museum Bilbao to attend a major announcement—the unveiling of a discovery that “will change the face of science forever.
“But the meticulously orchestrated evening suddenly erupts into chaos, and the event host billionaire Edmond Kirsch’s precious discovery teeters on the brink of being lost forever. Reeling and facing an imminent threat, Langdon is forced into a desperate bid to escape Bilbao.
“With him is Ambra Vidal, the elegant museum director who worked with Kirsch to stage the provocative event. Together they flee to Barcelona on a perilous quest to locate a cryptic password that will unlock Kirsch’s secret.”
The latest novel is set for release on October 3.
Meanwhile, National Book Store has opened a wait list for those who want to guarantee a copy of the book upon its arrival and release in the Philippines.
