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)

    "The Lost Symbol"

    This is the first Dan Brown book I have listened to, but have read all the print novels. Maybe that's why I much preferred "The Lost Symbol" to any of his other books.

    "Awful"

    Uninspired at best. Brown attempts to carry on his formula for success, with terrible results. I feel for the narrator, who did the best with the material he had to work with. I simply could not force myself to finish this book.

    "Getting Flat"

    The story is fine but there is far too much detail throughout the whole book, and usually I like a lot of "backdrop." However, I felt that the author was just filling space. The story would have built up more intensity if the pace was stepped up a bit. Worth reading, just to keep up with the series, but a bit disappointing. I was actually glad when it was finished and, usually, I hate a good book to end.

    "Nice!!"

    He did it again! I listen books while I walked. I completely got caught up in the book that I must have walked 10 miles without knowing. Thank you for the workout Dan Brown.

    "I thought I knew Washington..."

    I grew up in the D.C. area, and I thought I knew the place. I learned so much about sites around the area. I have to go back now and pick up on what I missed. Also, I thoroughly enjoyed the book. It moves quickly and is interesting. It has clean language. I loved it.

    "One of my favorites - Best Brown yet"

    Boy, Dan Brown has the touch and is getting better with each book. Angels and Demons was better than Di Vinci and this is better by far. Keep it up Dan!

    Another great book by Dan Brown. Paul Michael has an incredible voice and makes listening very enjoyable.

    "Disgusting"

    This is such a disgusting story riddled with nonsense that I haven't picked up another book in the last 6 months to read.
