In this stunning follow-up to the global phenomenon The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown demonstrates once again why he is the world's most popular thriller writer. The Lost Symbol is a masterstroke of storytelling—a deadly race through a real-world labyrinth of codes, secrets, and unseen truths . . . all under the watchful eye of Brown's most terrifying villain to date. Set within the hidden chambers, tunnels, and temples of Washington, D.C., The Lost Symbol accelerates through a startling landscape toward an unthinkable finale.
As the story opens, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned unexpectedly to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol Building. Within minutes of his arrival, however, the night takes a bizarre turn. A disturbing object —artfully encoded with five symbols—is discovered in the Capitol Building. Langdon recognizes the object as an ancient invitation . . . one meant to usher its recipient into a long-lost world of esoteric wisdom.
When Langdon's beloved mentor, Peter Solomon—a prominent Mason and philanthropist —is brutally kidnapped, Langdon realizes his only hope of saving Peter is to accept this mystical invitation and follow wherever it leads him. Langdon is instantly plunged into a clandestine world of Masonic secrets, hidden history, and never-before-seen locations—all of which seem to be dragging him toward a single, inconceivable truth.
As the world discovered in The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons, Dan Brown's novels are brilliant tapestries of veiled histories, arcane symbols, and enigmatic codes. In this new novel, he again challenges readers with an intelligent, lightning-paced story that offers surprises at every turn. The Lost Symbol is exactly what Brown's fans have been waiting for . . . his most thrilling novel yet.
Dan Brown is the author of The Da Vinci Code, one of the most widely read novels of all time, as well as the international bestsellers Angels & Demons, Deception Point, and Digital Fortress. He lives in New England with his wife.

This guy Dan Brown leaves a lot to wonder as to the imagination. I had to read when I was really perky and maybe bored, with a lot of time to just pass. I'm not sure if I will be reading many more books written by Dan Brown, I guess I'll have to wait to see what elseRead More

It's tough to followup a novel like Da Vinci Code, one of the biggest sellers ever, but Dan Brown has done a very good job with this one. These novels are really a story within a story--one a suspenseful piece of fiction, the other an historical education on the origins of Christianity and Masonic symbolism.How many Americans know about all the Masonic symbolism in the buildings of Washington and the Masonic connection of many of our Founding fathers? Probably as many as those who know about the Templar Knights and Mary Magdeline. That figure to the right of Jesus in Da Vinci's Last Supper sure does look like a woman to me--how did I miss that 20 years ago when I was in Milan and saw the painting (it was dark and I was a good distance away). I have to wonder what else we'll discover in Brown's next effort.Read More
I really like this book a lot. You should read this for fun.Read More
Book is ok, no blockbuster. Quite frankly I was disapointed after enjoying immensely Dan Brown's previous books. Just did not have the same "Wow" factor as his other books.Read More
