Détails: ANJOS E DEMÔNIOS Antes de decifrar O Código Da Vinci, Robert Langdon, o famoso professor de simbologia de Harvard, vive sua primeira aventura em Anjos e demônios, quando tenta impedir que uma antiga sociedade secreta destrua a Cidade do Vaticano. Às vésperas do conclave que vai eleger o novo Papa, Langdon é chamado às pressas para analisar um misterioso símbolo marcado a fogo no peito de um físico assassinado em um grande centro de pesquisas na Suíça. O CÓDIGO DA VINCI Um assassinato dentro do Museu do Louvre, em Paris, traz à tona uma sinistra conspiração para revelar um segredo que foi protegido por uma sociedade secreta desde os tempos de Jesus Cristo. A vítima é o respeitado curador do museu, Jacques Saunière, um dos líderes dessa antiga fraternidade, o Priorado de Sião, que já teve como membros Leonardo da Vinci, Victor Hugo e Isaac Newton. O SÍMBOLO PERDIDO Em O símbolo perdido, Robert Langdon é convidado às pressas por seu amigo e mentor Peter Solomon – eminente maçom e filantropo – a dar uma palestra no Capitólio dos Estados Unidos. Ao chegar lá, descobre que caiu numa armadilha. Não há palestra nenhuma, Solomon está desaparecido e, ao que tudo indica, correndo grande perigo. Nas mãos de Dan Brown, Washington se revela tão fascinante quanto o Vaticano ou Paris. Em O Símbolo Perdido, ele desperta o interesse dos leitores por temas tão variados como ciência, noética, teoria das supercordas e grandes obras de arte, os desafiando a abrir a mente para novos conhecimentos. INFERNO No meio da noite, o renomado simbologista Robert Langdon acorda de um pesadelo, num hospital. Desorientado e com um ferimento à bala na cabeça, ele não tem a menor ideia de como foi parar ali. Ao olhar pela janela e reconhecer a silhueta do Palazzo Vecchio, em Florença, Langdon tem um choque. Ele nem se lembra de ter deixado os Estados Unidos. Na verdade, não tem nenhuma recordação das últimas 36 horas. ORIGEM Robert Langdon, o famoso professor de Simbologia de Harvard, chega ao ultramoderno Museu Guggenheim de Bilbao para assistir a uma apresentação sobre uma grande descoberta que promete abalar os alicerces de todas as religiões e mudar para sempre a face da ciência. O anfitrião é o futurólogo e bilionário Edmond Kirsch, que se tornou conhecido por suas previsões audaciosas e invenções de alta tecnologia. O brilhante ex-aluno de Langdon está prestes a revelar uma incrível revolução no conhecimento, algo que vai responder a duas perguntas fundamentais da existência humana: DE ONDE VIEMOS? PARA ONDE VAMOS?

Robert Langdon, Harvard professor of symbology, arrives at the ultramodern Guggenheim Museum Bilbao to attend the unveiling of a discovery that “will change the face of science forever.” The evening’s host is Edmond Kirsch, a forty-year-old billionaire and futurist, and one of Langdon’s first students. But the meticulously orchestrated evening suddenly erupts into chaos, and Kirsch’s precious discovery teeters on the brink of being lost forever. Facing an imminent threat, Langdon is forced to flee. With him is Ambra Vidal, the elegant museum director who worked with Kirsch. They travel to Barcelona on a perilous quest to locate a cryptic password that will unlock Kirsch’s secret. Navigating the dark corridors of hidden history and extreme re­ligion, Langdon and Vidal must evade an enemy whose all-knowing power seems to emanate from Spain’s Royal Palace. They uncover clues that ultimately bring them face-to-face with Kirsch’s shocking discovery…and the breathtaking truth that has long eluded us.

Détails: Before the multi-million, runaway bestseller The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown set his razor-sharp research and storytelling skills on the most powerful intelligence organization on earth--the National Security Agency (NSA)--in this thrilling novel, Digital Fortress. When the NSA's invincible code-breaking machine encounters a mysterious code it cannot break, the agency calls its head cryptographer, Susan Fletcher, a brilliant and beautiful mathematician. What she uncovers sends shock waves through the corridors of power. The NSA is being held hostage...not by guns or bombs, but by a code so ingeniously complex that if released it would cripple U.S. intelligence. Caught in an accelerating tempest of secrecy and lies, Susan Fletcher battles to save the agency she believes in. Betrayed on all sides, she finds herself fighting not only for her country but for her life, and in the end, for the life of the man she loves. From the underground hallways of power to the skyscrapers of Tokyo to the towering cathedrals of Spain, a desperate race unfolds. It is a battle for survival--a crucial bid to destroy a creation of inconceivable genius...an impregnable code-writing formula that threatens to obliterate the post-cold war balance of power. Forever.

Détails: The U.S. and its Western allies come under a diabolical Russian cyber warfare attack in this action-packed military techno-thriller from New York Times bestselling master Dale Brown. In a top-secret location deep in the Ural Mountains, Russian President Gennadiy Gryzlov has built his nation’s most dangerous weapon since the atomic bomb—a fearsome tool to gain superiority in Russia’s long-running battle with the West. From inside Perun Aerie—an intricate network of underground tunnels and chambers that is the heart of the Russian cyber warfare program—he is launching a carefully plotted series of attacks on an unsuspecting U.S. and its European allies. The first strike targets Warsaw, Poland, where Russian malware wipes out the records of nearly every Polish bank account, imploding the country’s financial system and panicking the rest of Europe. When Stacy Anne Barbeau, the besieged American president, fails to effectively combat the Russian threat, Brad McLanahan, on some well-earned R&R with his new Polish girlfriend, Major Nadia Rozek, is called back to duty. As the Russians’ deadly tactics escalate—including full-scale assaults on Europe’s power grid and the remote hijacking of a commercial airliner that kills hundreds of civilians—McLanahan and his Scion team kick into gear, arming themselves with the most advanced technological weaponry for the epic struggle ahead. A patriot in the mold of his father, the late general Patrick McLanahan, Brad knows firsthand the price of freedom. With the world’s fate hanging in the balance, will Scion succeed in turning back Gryzlov before he can realize his terrifying ambition to conquer the globe? And what will the toll of victory be?

Détails: MORE THAN 80 MILLION COPIES SOLD Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read While in Paris, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is awakened by a phone call in the dead of the night. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, his body covered in baffling symbols. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist Sophie Neveu sort through the bizarre riddles, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Leonardo da Vinci—clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter. Even more startling, the late curator was involved in the Priory of Sion—a secret society whose members included Sir Isaac Newton, Victor Hugo, and Da Vinci—and he guarded a breathtaking historical secret. Unless Langdon and Neveu can decipher the labyrinthine puzzle—while avoiding the faceless adversary who shadows their every move—the explosive, ancient truth will be lost forever.

Détails: Large retail chains have become the most powerful corporations in America and are rapidly transforming our economy, communities, and landscape. In this deft and revealing book, Stacy Mitchell illustrates how mega-retailers are fueling many of our most pressing problems, from the shrinking middle class to rising water pollution and diminished civic engagement. Mitchell's investigation takes us from the suburbs of Cleveland to a fruit farm in California, the stockroom of an Oregon Wal-Mart, and a Pennsylvania town's Main Street. She uncovers the shocking role government policy has played in the expansion of mega-retailers and builds a compelling case that communities composed of many small businesses are healthier and more prosperous than those dominated by large chains. More than a critique, Big-Box Swindle draws on real life to show how some communities are successfully countering the spread of mega-retailers and rebuilding their local economies. Mitchell describes innovative approaches-from cutting-edge land-use policies to small-business initiatives-that together provide a detailed road map to a more prosperous and sustainable future.

From movie stars to horse-drawn carriages, from a transformed theater to Gone With the Wind merchandise, this is the book that takes you back to an event often neglected in the Gone with the Wind story."--BOOK JACKET.

Détails: Within this volume lie the complete Steampunk short stories of Professor Langdon St. Ives, Victorian adventurer, written by avowed Steampunk Legend, James P. Blaylock. St. Ives, traveler through time and space and an often misunderstood member of the Explorers Club and the Royal Society, has trodden the foggy London streets and Thames-side alleyways for decades, caught up in near-death adventures in pursuit of nefarious villains and obscure knowledge. In the pages of this chronicle, the intrepid Professor and his stalwart friends face down strange enemies and avert catastrophes that the world scarcely knows exist, finding themselves stalked through the idol-infested jungles of Borneo, set adrift in the starlit reaches of outer space, plunged into the infamous “barrel madness” that descended upon London in the late 18th century, and wandering in a past-and-future age when they stumble upon a time portal in the midst of ancient standing stones in the idyllic Kent countryside. World Fantasy Award winning author James Blaylock, one of the pioneers of the Steampunk genre along with Tim Powers and K.W. Jeter, has written more than 25 novels as well as scores of short stories, essays, and articles. His Steampunk novel Homunculus won the Philip K. Dick Memorial Award, and his short story “The Ape-box Affair,” published in Unearth magazine in 1978, was the first contemporary Steampunk story published in the U.S. His recent Steampunk works include The Aylesford Skull, Beneath London, River’s Edge, and The Gobblin’ Society. Praise for James P. Blaylock: “A singular American fabulist.” —William Gibson “Blaylock is a magician!” —Michael Swanwick “Blaylock’s prose is so rich it literally sings!” —Charles de Lint “Blaylock is better than anyone else at showing us the magic that secretly animates our world...” —Tim Powers “While many recent novels have picked up the steampunk banner, this one fully delivers, offering action, farce, tender relationships, and prose full of genuine Victorian cadence and flavor.” —Publishers Weekly on The Affair of the Chalk Cliffs “St. Ives has to be one of the most fleshed out Victorian characters ever written, and I m sincerely hoping that Blaylock isn t finished with this scientist adventurer. The Aylesford Skull can easily stand alone without any knowledge of Blaylock s previous steampunk stories, but you’ll want to hunt down additional St. Ives tales, I’m for certain.” —Wired.com “Blaylock throws in all the furniture of the genre: derring-do and cliffhangers, a vivid portrayal of Victorian London, a gallery of grotesque characters and the obligatory airship, but the strength of the novel is his rendering of St Ives caught between his love of the chase and his commitment to family.” —The Guardian
