A nuclear endgame played out among the superpowers created a fiery cataclysm that turned America into a treacherous new frontier. But an intrepid group of warrior survivalists roams the wastelands, unlocking the secrets of a pre-dark world. Ryan Cawdor and his band have become living legends in a world of madness and death where savagery reigns, but the human spirit endures….


The South Pacific is a rad-blasted paradise, inhabited by giant mutated crustaceans and savage cannibals. The local baron rules the Marshall Islands with a despotic iron fist and a secret formula for making Deathland's gold: gunpowder. But his true invincibility lies in his possession of stockpiles of pre-dark rapid-fire missiles and a fleet of functional PT boats. Ryan Cawdor and his companions have faced off against the baron and survived. But this time there's only one way out of these death seas—through the sec-men-infested waters of the baron's kingdom. Imagine your worst nightmare. This is Deathlands.

The #1 New York Times Bestseller (October 2017) 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.
 The conspiracy theorists were right! Who knew?

A renegade president has used FEMA and government loopholes to rescind the Constitution, dismiss Congress, and all but appoint himself King Lording I. He rules with an iron fist and a callous disregard for human life. Oppose him and die.

But true American nature begins to bleed through and dissent leads to rebellion.

At the core of the resistance is Mace Wallace, lone survivor of the Cochise Stronghold Massacre. The Arizona militia SASS, Southern Arizona Sportsman’s Society, is wiped out at that monument for daring to resist Lording when he makes his power grab. Just before the final attack that leaves a radioactive crater, Mace is sent to enlist the help of the Arizona governor.

After two years of evading capture, Mace joins the resistance in Chicago. The resistance, organized by the mysterious Third, has been a debris choked river, pushing to break through. Its members pace their imposed, caged existence, eager for the fight to regain their freedom. Mace comes up with a plan to shake things up and succeeds on an epic scale.

Somehow, Mace is recognized and, with Lording’s goons close on their heels, the local resistance leaders, Dell and Layla, whisk Mace through the streets of Chicago.

A scheme on a national level develops and Mace, along with his newfound friends, heads back to Arizona, where it all started for him.

The country as a whole is a powder keg, ready to blow. Mace becomes the spark that lights that fuel and fires up a nation in the process.
