    In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces: Dante’s Inferno. Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust...before the world is irrevocably altered.

    Any additional comments?

    This book is very similar to the first books in this series. It was a very slow start, so I was worried that I would not be that interested in it. But once the "intrigue" and the "figuring out of the clues" started, I enjoyed it. And honestly, the resulting end of the book was good. What ended up happening is not what I expected, so that is always a good end to a book.

    When the body of a young woman is discovered deep beneath the icy waters of Lake Grant, a note left under a rock by the shore points to suicide. But within minutes, it becomes clear that this is no suicide. It's a brutal, cold-blooded murder. All too soon former Grant County medical examiner Sara Linton - home for Thanksgiving after a long absence - finds herself unwittingly drawn into the case.

    Undone, (2009), Genesis (UK and Australia title)
    Broken, (2010)
    Fallen, (2011)
    Criminal, (2012)
    Unseen, (2013)

    The above is the correct order. Honestly, each book can be read as a stand alone. But the background info is good to have.

    In December 1893, Sherlock Holmes-adoring Londoners eagerly opened their Strand magazines-- anticipating the detective's next adventure-- only to find the unthinkable: his creator, Arthur Conan Doyle, had killed their hero off. London spiraled into mourning -- crowds sported black armbands in grief -- and railed against Conan Doyle as his assassin.

    I read this book based on another reviewer recommending in his review of a book that I was thinking about getting. The reviews on that book were only so so, so I decided to read a book that someone recommended with gusto. This book was pleasant. It wasn't faced paced or cutting edge, but interesting enough. I like Sherlock Holmes as much as anyone does who likes mysteries. The best part about this book was that the chapters alternated between a present day "Sherlockian" and the voice of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in his day. As the Sherlockian was uncovering a mystery, the mystery was being acted out in real time in the other chapter. I was really intrigued by this format. I kept wondering what Sir Doyle had done that would be so interesting to today's Sherlockian - did he murder someone? Intrigue. So, the overall resolution to the book was pretty good. I recommend it. Not fast paced and exciting, but interesting.
