Inferno

Thriller Arcane

Before waking up in a hospital in Florence, Italy, the last thing Robert Langdon remembers is walking across the Harvard campus after giving a lecture in class. As he awakes, there is a woman standing in the hallway with a gun aimed right at him. The woman shoots one doctor as another, Dr. Sienna Brooks, whisks Langdon away from his would-be killer. Dr. Brooks takes Langdon to her apartment where they try to sort out what is going on.

When Sienna finds a biotube in Langdon's jacket, he has no recollection of where or how he got it. Together they discover it's a cylinder seal with a projectable painting embedded in bone. Langdon realizes the painting it projects has been altered and has an encrypted message in it. When Robert and Sienna's location is discovered by Robert's attackers, they are on the run again, narrowly escaping the men who are after them. Their journey takes them through the streets of Florence, weaving their way through a palace garden, musty caverns and then slithering through secret passageways. Their discoveries take them to Venice and finally Istanbul, Turkey. Who is after them and why? Can Robert and Sienna decipher the mysterious puzzle of the biotube and get to the object they are trying to find in time?
