The Robert Langdon series is probably one of the best-known thriller set of books dealing with conspiracy theories, the Vatican, puzzle solving, and the hunt for the Holy Grail. Dan Brown started a real trend when he wrote The Da Vinci Code (even though it is not the first book in the series).
Robert Langdon is no superhero. He is a Harvard symbologist always on the lookout for further symbols to decipher. Yet, time and time again, he finds himself in troubles that most mortals would not come out unscattered from. But this is fiction. And the Robert Langdon books are there to entertain. And entertain they do.
Here are the Robert Langdon series in order for the Dan Brown popular and very controversial books.

Robert Langdon is a world-renowned, trusted Harvard symbologist who is constantly summoned to various buildings such as museums, research facilities, etc, to analyze inscriptions and symbols hidden in or on objects, among others.
In Angels and Demons, he has to analyze a mysterious symbol that is burned into the chest of a murdered physicist. In Da Vinci Code, he is summed to Louvre to inspect a strange inscription found next to the body of a murdered museum curator.
