Dan Brown's 'Inferno' tops Amazon's list for 2013


NEW YORK (AP) -- A year after Fifty Shades of Grey overwhelmed best-seller lists, book buyers were seeking different kinds of thrills.

Dan Brown 's latest Robert Langdon caper, Inferno, was Amazon.com's No. 1 seller for 2013, the online retailer announced Monday. Khaled Hosseini was second with And the Mountains Echoed. The best-sellers for kids and teens were Veronica Roth's Allegiant and Rick Riordan's The Houses of Hades.

Another major hit on Amazon.com was The Cuckoo's Calling, a crime story J.K. Rowling wrote under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith.
