Please join us in reading our pick of the month book Inferno by Dan Brown.

We will be reviewing Inferno along with our monthly book club discussion questions for July 31st, 2016.

Inferno is the fourth book in the Robert Langdon series.

Dan Brown’s suspenseful thrillers began with Angels & Demon, followed by Da Vinci Code, then The Lost Symbol and finally Inferno.

Robert Langdon wakes up in Italy with amnesia and is being hunted down by a trained female assassin. He has to unravel numerous codes to find out the reason for his amnesia.

Dan Brown is a #1 New York Times bestselling author and I am looking forward to reading this book that looks like a page turner.
