Publisher's Summary

The Lost Symbol, the stunning follow-up to The Da Vinci Code, is a masterstroke of storytelling - a deadly race through a real-world labyrinth of codes and unseen truths...all under the watchful eye of a terrifying villain. Set within the unseen tunnels and temples of Washington, D.C., The Lost Symbol accelerates through a startling landscape toward an unthinkable finale.

Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol. Within minutes of his arrival, the night takes a bizarre turn. A disturbing object - artfully encoded with five ancient symbols - is discovered in the Capitol Building. The object is an ancient invitation, meant to usher its recipient into a long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom. And when Langdon's mentor Peter Solomon - prominent Mason and philanthropist - is kidnapped, Langdon's only hope of saving Peter is to accept this invitation and follow wherever it leads him. Langdon finds himself 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.

The Lost Symbol is exactly what Dan Brown's fans have been waiting for...his most thrilling novel yet.

What the Critics Say

"[I]mpossible to put down....Mr. Brown was writing sensational visual scenarios long before his books became movie material. This time he again enlivens his story with amazing imagery....Thanks to him, picture postcards of the capital's most famous monuments will never be the same....In the end it is Mr. Brown's sweet optimism, even more than Langdon's sleuthing and explicating, that may amaze his readers most." (The New York Times)
"Thrilling, entertaining....Robert Langdon goes for another roller-coaster ride - this time in a hunt for a Masonic treasure in Washington, D.C." (Los Angeles Times)

    "A Great Mix of History, Philosophy and Faith!"

    The Lost Symbol is a good read with enormous potential for a GREAT historical mystery thriller to follow the previous movies, DiVinci Code and Angels and Demons. This time Dan Brown interweaves an investigative storyline tying obscure historical facts associated with our Nation and the Free Mason perspectives. Once again, I was reminded that the excitement is in the journey, as there are truly no endings, but only new beginnings of understanding. The underlying message of the book, far from controversial, has re-iterated a message that has historically permeated in many spiritual perceptions of Mans relationship to GOD for some time. Brown brings this message front and center to chip away at modern mainstream consciousness offering philosophical food for thought. I recommend this book if you enjoy a mix of history, philosophy and faith. -D

    "Good listen, until the end"

    My husband and I were facing an 18 hour car trip and needed a good book to keep us awake. This did just that, and kept us interested and engaged. However, once the mysteries started to unravel, I have to admit I was disappointed with how it all ended. But, it was still worth the time.

    "Fast Paced"

    This is the 4th or 5th book I have read of Dan Brown's. I have like them all. They are speedy and hard to put down. Lots of action and plenty of technology to keep me interested. I love the detail and knowledge he puts in his books. I hope to keep reading his books for years to come.

    "Lost Symbol by Dan Brown"

    I have enjoyed several previous Dan Brown novels. The Lost Symbol was a big disappointment. It was unrealistic beyond any suspension of disbelief, disjointed, & generally poorly written. The characters were not well done & unconvincing. A poor performance by a previous ly interesting author.

    A school administrator and avid reader and listener of books. At least an hour of every day is spent in the car, and that's where the bulk of my listening is done. I tend to listen to books on "faster" mode so I can get through more books!

    "Abridged was good"

    The Lost Symbol is filled with all of the same Robert Langdon intrigue--deaths, mysterious symbols, the Masonic Order, and more. And yes, it's still hard to put down. While somewhat formulaic, Brown is still able to craft an interesting and compelling tale.
