Traducción de: Origin

Robert Langdon, profesor de simbología e iconografía religiosa de Harvard, llega al ultramoderno Museo Guggenheim Bilbao para presenciar un importante anuncio --la revelación de un descubrimiento que "cambiará la historia de la ciencia para siempre". El anfitrión del evento esa noche es Edmond Kirsch, un billonario y futurista de cuarenta años cuyos deslumbrantes inventos tecnológicos y audaces predicciones lo han convertido en una figura de renombre a nivel mundial. Kirsch, quien hace dos décadas fue uno de los primeros alumnos de Langdon en Harvard, está a punto de revelar un asombroso hallazgo... que dará la respuesta a dos preguntas fundamentales de la existencia humana. Tras el comienzo del evento, Langdon y cientos de invitados se encuentran cautivados por una presentación totalmente original, que --Langdon luego comprenderá-- será mucho más polémica de lo que jamás se imaginó. Pero la función, que ha sido meticulosamente orquestada, de pronto irrumpe en caos y el valioso descubrimiento de Kirsch está al borde de ser perdido para siempre. Frente a una inminente amenaza, Langdon se ve obligado a escapar desesperadamente de Bilbao. A su lado está Ambra Vidal, la elegante directora del museo que trabajó con Kirsch en la organización del provocativo evento. Juntos huyen a Barcelona y emprenden la peligrosa búsqueda de la clave encriptada que revelará el secreto de Kirsch
