Seasons come and seasons go, but Dan Brown will always be around to blow your paranoid mind. Brown, author of The Da Vinci Code, is set to publish a new book, Origin, later this year. As with Brown’s previous three books, the novel will feature iconic Harvard Symbology Professor Robert Langdon as protagonist.
Doubleday, Brown’s publisher, has released Origin’s cover as well as a short promotional video. Though details remain vague, the novel’s plot will most likely involve another of Brown’s signature museum mysteries, with the action centered around the Guggenheim Museum of Modern Art in Bilbao, Spain. The book’s themes, Doubleday stated, will also be classic Brown, concerning “codes, symbols, science, religion, history, art and architecture with a decidedly fresh twist: The art is modern, and the science taps into the coolest, cutting-edge technology available today.”

The first Langdon book, Angels and Demons, was published in 2000; its 2003 follow-up, The Da Vinci Code, became hugely successful upon publication and was adapted into a 2006 film starring Tom Hanks as Langdon.
