全球暢銷作家丹布朗筆下最受歡迎主角 羅伯‧蘭登教授再次登場!
不論你是誰,不論你相信些什麼─ 你所知的一切即將天翻地覆!
國家:西班牙  地點:古根漢畢爾包現代美術館

  羅伯‧蘭登任教於哈佛大學,是知識極為廣博的宗教符號學教授,他才初初抵達位於西班牙畢爾包的古根漢美術館,這是一座擁有許多現代藝術館藏的前衛美術館。接獲主辦者的特別邀請,他遠道飛來參加一場重要晚會,在這場晚會中,據說將有一項重大發現首次公布,而這項發現,極有可能將會從此扭轉當代科學的面貌。

  寄出邀請函的正是主辦人艾德蒙‧克爾許,一位不過40出頭的富豪,他因其驚人的卓越科學發明,以及對未來趨勢的大膽預測,他的一舉一動,都備受舉世注目,是全球媒體爭相報導的重要人物。他同時還有一個較少人知道的身分─他同時也是20多年前,蘭登教授剛開始在哈佛大學任教時的第一批學生。

  這高度保密的晚會內容,據說即將揭露
  千百年來,關於人類存在的兩個根本疑問。

  晚會剛開始進行不久,蘭登教授與其他數百位賓客就不可自拔地,被這場發表中前所未見的概念深深吸引,然而他同時也發現,這些內容的爭議性,竟然遠遠超過他的想像!正當這場精心規劃的晚宴進行到一半,就被意外騷動所打斷,而艾德蒙‧克爾許的珍貴發現,瞬間岌岌可危,很有可能就要完全消失在這世界上......面對迫在眉睫的威脅,蘭登教授不得不火速逃離畢爾包美術館,與他同行的優雅女子安柏拉‧薇朵是美術館總監,也是這場爭議晚宴的協辦人。兩人冒著性命的危險秘密前往巴塞隆納,因為他們必須找到一組關鍵密碼,才能解開克爾許所隱藏的謎底。

  隨著陰暗的階梯拾級而下,他們發現自己正一步步走向隱晦的歷史陰暗面,以及這世界上最極端的宗教;他們更發現這一次可怕的敵人,不但彷彿擁有無所不知的能力,而且很可能根本來自馬德里皇宮...這群藏身在暗處的敵人,為何不惜一切要讓克爾許噤聲?蘭登教授和安柏拉兩人一路拆解現代藝術與難解符號之中所潛藏的線索,就快要揭開克爾許以性命守護的驚世發現,以及這讓世代人類追尋已久卻始終不可得的真相!

  Whoever You Are.
  Whatever You Believe.
  Everything Will Change.

  The stunningly inventive new novel from the world’s most popular thriller writer

  Bilbao, Spain

  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.” The evening’s host is Edmond Kirsch, a forty-year-old billionaire and futurist whose dazzling high-tech inventions and audacious predictions have made him a renowned global figure. Kirsch, who was one of Langdon’s first students at Harvard two decades earlier, is about to reveal an astonishing breakthrough . . . one that will answer two of the fundamental questions of human existence.

  As the event begins, Langdon and several hundred guests find themselves captivated by an utterly original presentation, which Langdon realizes will be far more controversial than he ever imagined. But the meticulously orchestrated evening suddenly erupts into chaos, and 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.

  Navigating the dark corridors of hidden history and extreme religion, Langdon and Vidal must evade a tormented enemy whose all-knowing power seems to emanate from Spain’s Royal Palace itself . . . and who will stop at nothing to silence Edmond Kirsch. On a trail marked by modern art and enigmatic symbols, Langdon and Vidal uncover clues that ultimately bring them face-to-face with Kirsch’s shocking discovery . . . and the breathtaking truth that has long eluded us.

  Origin is stunningly inventive—Dan Brown’s most brilliant and entertaining novel to date.
