Highlight Story

The Da Vinci Code became a worldwide phenomenon in 2003, and was adapted into a film starring Tom Hanks in 2006.

The Da Vinci Code author Dan Brown is set to release a new Robert Langdon thriller entitled Origin next year, with the novel to be published by Transworld imprint Bantam Press.

The book will be released in the UK on September 26, 2017, priced at £20, with Doubleday to distribute the novel simultaneously in the US and Canada. It will also be available as an e-book and an audiobook from Penguin Random House Audio.

While little has been unveiled as yet about the book’s plot, the publisher said it would be “in keeping with (Brown’s) trademark style”, featuring codes, science, religion, history, art and architecture.

Brown has penned six number-one international bestsellers to date, including The Da Vinci Code, Inferno, The Lost Symbol, Angels & Demons, Deception Point and Digital Fortress, with three of them being adapted into films, and The Da Vinci Code being his biggest seller with 80 million copies sold.
