|The Lost Symbol
by Dan Brown
Dan Brown’s longtime editor,
Jason Kaufman, vice president and executive editor at Doubleday
said, “Nothing ever is as it first appears in a Dan Brown novel.
This book’s narrative takes place in a 12-hour period, and from the
first page, Dan’s readers will feel the thrill of discovery as they
follow Robert Langdon through a masterful and unexpected new
landscape. 'The Lost Symbol' is full of surprises.”
“This novel has been a strange
and wonderful journey,” said Brown, a native of Exeter who now lives
in Rye Beach, N.H. “Weaving five years of research into the story’s
12-hour timeframe was an exhilarating challenge. Robert Langdon’s
life clearly moves a lot faster than mine."

Baigent & Richard Leigh
|The authors hypothesize that Jesus

Once there, they intermarried with the noble families and eventually
became the Merovingian dynasty, whose special claim to the throne of
France is championed today by a secret society called the Priory of
