Robert Langdon, fictional professor at Harvard, has a new problem to solve.  He’s been through this before, since his specialty baffles most individuals.

As a symbologist, Langdon is able to decipher ancient writings which are meaningless to nearly everyone else.  Summoned to Europe, he must determine whether one vicious murder is an isolated event or a catastrophe-in-the-making.  

Along the way, he will learn that antimatter isn’t just something which exists in the world of science fiction.
