Some skills never fade…

Raised by con artists, Emily Moore has done her share of manipulating others to make ends meet. She’s working hard to go legit and make up for her past, but she still knows how to spot an easy mark. And when to walk away from a bad situation. Emily learned life’s lessons the hard way, and now a tough exterior hides her one weakness—her love for the man who left her.

 

Some hurts never heal…

After a high profile murder, Detective Adam Wilde’s brother disappears, becoming both the Las Vegas Police Department’s primary suspect and the real killer’s target. Tanner has hardly been an upstanding citizen, but Adam believes he’s innocent. He suspects an underground group called the Redemption Club, which trades in dark deeds, is behind the murder, and it’s essential he finds his brother before the Club does. If anyone can think like his brother, Tanner’s childhood friend Emily can. But first, Adam will have to repair their friendship and make up for hurting her—even if his rejection was intended to protect them both.

 

Some gambles are worth the risk…

Their hearts are telling them to let go of the past, but trust has never been easy for either Emily or Adam. It’ll take a common purpose, and an undeniable passion, to reunite them. To find Tanner and defeat the head of Redemption Club, they’ll need each other—and they’ll need to come up with the con of their lives.

Dan Brown
The #1 New York Times Bestseller from the author of The Da Vinci Code
 
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.
