Unlocking the Cover of Inferno by Dan Brown

Weekly Lizard

The wait is over—Inferno, the new book from internationally bestselling author Dan Brown is now available everywhere. In this blockbuster thriller, Robert Langdon returns to investigate a high-stakes mystery centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces, Dante’s Inferno. As Langdon battles a chilling adversary, he must also unravel a riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science.

Ingeniously, the mysteries of Inferno begin before you even open the book. The cover itself has secrets—secrets that can only be unlocked with the official Inferno app. Download the app from Apple or Google, then hold it over the book cover (or an image of the book cover) to see what’s hidden inside.

Plus, the app gives you direct access to the #InfernoSymbols Contest. Find, photograph, and share all seven Inferno symbols on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #InfernoSymbols, and you’ll be entered for your chance to win one of seven hardcover copies of Inferno autographed by Dan Brown.
