Author of The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown has revealed that his latest novel is set in several Spanish cities, including Bilbao, home of the Guggenheim.

News of the book, a Robert Langdon thriller titled Origin was first revealed last year, although plot details were – and still are – scarce. Readers knew the book would feature Brown’s trademark style, tying in codes, science, religion, history, art and architecture.

Brown’s publisher Doubleday has now revealed that those trademark elements will be given a fresh twist: “the art is modern and the science taps into the coolest cutting-edge technology available today.”

This outing will take Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon to Spain, with the events of the book set in Madrid, Barcelona, Seville and Bilbao.

Brown made mention of the book’s location in a tweet, stating, “I secretly spent a lot of time in Spain over the last few years. This ORIGIN book trailer reveals why.”

Dan Brown’s international bestsellers include The Da Vinci Code, Inferno, The Lost Symbol, Angels & Demons, Deception Point and Digital Fortress. His recurring character Robert Langdon features in the first four books. The character has been portrayed by Tom Hanks in a series of films, most recently Inferno (2016).
