Inferno : a novel by Dan Brown( Book )

8 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in Italian and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il profilo di Dante che ci guarda dalla copertina è il motore mobile di un thriller che di infernale ha molto. Il ritmo e poi il simbolismo acceso, e infine la complessità dei personaggi. Non è sorprendente che lo studioso di simbologia Robert Langdon sia un esperto di Dante. È naturale che al poeta fiorentino e alla visionarietà con cui tradusse la temperie della sua epoca tormentata il professore americano abbia dedicato studi e corsi universitari ad Harvard. È normale che a Firenze Robert Langdon sia di casa, che il David e piazza della Signoria, il giardino di Boboli e Palazzo Vecchio siano per lui uno sfondo familiare. Ma ora è tutto diverso, non c'è niente di normale. È un incubo e la sua conoscenza della città fin nei labirinti delle stradine, dei corridoi dei palazzi, dei passaggi segreti può aiutarlo a salvarsi la vita. Il Robert Langdon che si sveglia in una stanza d'ospedale, stordito, sedato, ferito alla testa, gli abiti insanguinati su una sedia, ricorda a stento il proprio nome, non capisce come sia arrivato a Firenze, chi abbia tentato di ucciderlo e perché i suoi inseguitori non sembrino affatto intenzionati a mollare il colpo. Barcollante, la mente invasa da apparizioni mostruose, il professore deve scappare. Aiutato solo dalla giovane dottoressa Sienna Brooks, soccorrevole, ma misteriosa come troppe persone e cose intorno a lui, deve scappare da tutti. Comincia una caccia all'uomo in cui schieramenti avversi si potrebbero ritrovare dalla stessa parte, in cui niente è quel che sembra

Juan Cabrillo and his motley crew aboard the clandestine spy ship Oregon have made a very comfortable and very dangerous living working for high-powered Western interests. But their newest clients have come from the Far East to ask for Cabrillo's special brand of assistance: a consortium of Japanese shipping magnates whose fortunes are being threatened by brutal pirates trolling the waters of Southeast Asia. Normally, such attacks on the high seas are limited to smaller ships and foreign-owned yachts-easy targets on the open ocean. Now, however, giant commercial freighters are disappearing. But when Cabrillo confronts the enemy, he learns that the pirates' predations hide a deadly international conspiracy-a scheme of death and slavery that Juan Cabrillo is going to blow out of the water
