Robert Langdon9 books in series
Caught in the war between religion and power, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon travels the world to decipher secret codes, expose dangerous conspiracies, and stop catastrophes.
A Harvard professor of symbology and religious iconology, Robert Langdon is a sought-after expert on deciphering cryptic messages in revered texts and works of art. What’s surprising is how much danger Professor Langdon runs into while investigating ancient rumors, mysterious characters, and secret societies - including the Illuminati and the Freemasons. From the Louvre to the Vatican to Washington, DC, these blockbuster thrillers take listeners on a heart-pounding race through treacherous catacombs, sealed crypts, hidden vaults, and a labyrinth of codes, unseen truths, and lurking threats. Backed by author Dan Brown’s rigorous research into historical facts and real-world covens, this series features chillingly plausible plots for power and domination.
The intellectually curious and determined Robert Langdon is expertly voiced by Paul Michael. Beyond the professor, the Audie Award-winning narrator commands various European accents - flawlessly pronounced - lending authority and authenticity to the characters and setting. His skillful pacing and clear phrasing enliven the wealth of historical information he delivers along with the suspense.
Dan Brown was an English teacher before he became a #1 New York Times best-selling author and global sensation with this series of mystery thrillers. The Robert Langdon novels have inspired a trio of feature films - The Da Vinci Code (2006), Angels and Demons (2009), and Inferno (2016) - directed by Ron Howard and starring Tom Hanks as Professor Langdon.
