Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

“Dan Brown brings sexy back to a genre that had been left for dead....His code and clue-filled book is dense with exotica...amazing imagery...and the nonstop momentum that makes The Lost Symbol impossible to put down. Splendid....Another mind-blowing Robert Langdon story.” New York Times

Review:

“Thrilling in the extreme, a definite page-flipper.” Daily News (New York)

Review:

“Call it Brownian motion: a comet-tail ride of beautifully spaced reveals and a socko unveiling of the killer’s true identity.” Washington Post

Review:

“The wait is over. The Lost Symbol is here — and you don’t have to be a Freemason to enjoy it....Thrilling and entertaining, like the experience on a roller coaster.” Los Angeles Times

Review:

“Robert Langdon remains a terrific hero, a bookish intellectual who’s cool in a crisis and quick on his feet....The codes are intriguing, the settings present often-seen locales in a fresh light, and Brown keeps the pages turning.” Entertainment Weekly

Review:

“A fascinating pleasure....Upends our usual assumptions about the world we think we know.” Newsweek

Review:

“A roaring ride....A caper filled with puzzles, grids, symbols, pyramids and a secret that can bestow ‘unfathomable power.’” San Francisco Chronicle

All I have to say is, "HOLY COW!!!! What a ride!!!!" I just finished this book, and it is even more mind-blowing than 'DaVinci Code' and 'Angels and Demons.' The plot twists and turns, taking the reader on an extremely-hard-to-put-down journey. Just when you think you have the secrets solved, something else occurs in the storyline which blows your ideas all to hell. The final two twists are absolutely guaranteed to make you feel as if someone cut a hole in the top of your head, stuck in a whisk and scrambled your brains. If you love reading a great book that takes you for a great ride, read this book! I am looking forward to reading more from him.

I found this book extremely interesting for the information it gave on the Free Masons. I had know idea of how much they have influenced not just politics but architecture. It makes me want to visit Washington D.C. just see if I can identify some of the items and places described in the book. Like all of Dan Brown's books it's a great read. You can't help but want to finish it even if it makes you hungry for more!
