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.

"[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)
I really enjoy this author. This writer uses a lot of obscure and very relevant facts, and then puts a new twist on some of the oldest subjects of everyone's interest.
I have really enjoyed this book.
It was worth the time and money we consumers spend on an authors work. This is truly the "written word," at it's very best.
I know I should know better but this ponderous, cliche ridden attempt at drama was sounding bad when it started and simply got worse as it went along. I was looking for a page turner and realized that one of the drawbacks of listening to books, which I enjoy when the book is worth it, is that you can't skim. Audible should put in a program to read the first sentence of each paragraph and it would serve a book like this well.
I'm sorry Mr. Brown but it's the same, details are all correct. Your characters now are in Washington D.C.. I must admit,I may not understand,the person breaking threw the ice,looking for someone to cover his scare by the twig.I thought everything was covered except his precious balls of gold that have mystical power
