WHAT WAS LOST WILL BE FOUND…

Washington DC: Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned at the last minute to deliver an evening lecture in the Capitol Building. Within moments of his arrival, however, a disturbing object – gruesomely encoded with five symbols – is discovered at the epicentre of the Rotunda. It is, he recognises, an ancient invitation, meant to beckon its recipient towards a long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom.

When Langdon’s revered mentor, Peter Solomon – philanthropist and prominent mason – is brutally kidnapped, Langdon realizes that his only hope of saving his friend’s life is to accept this mysterious summons and follow wherever it leads him.

Langdon finds himself quickly swept behind the facade of America’s most historic city into the unseen chambers, temples and tunnels which exist there. All that was familiar is transformed into a shadowy, clandestine world of an artfully concealed past in which Masonic secrets and never-before-seen revelations seem to be leading him to a single impossible and inconceivable truth.

A brilliantly composed tapestry of veiled histories, arcane icons and enigmatic codes, The Lost Symbol is an intelligent, lightning-paced thriller that offers surprises at every turn. For, as Robert Langdon will discover, there is nothing more extraordinary or shocking than the secret which hides in plain sight…

                  Dan Brown

                  Dan Brown is the author of numerous bestselling novels, including the worldwide number one, The Da Vinci Code – one of the best selling novels of all time. His four novels were in the Sunday Times bestsellers list for a whole year and were the top four bestselling novels of 2005. They have been translated and published in more than 40 languages around the world.

                  Dan is a graduate of Amherst College and Phillips Exeter Academy, where he spent time as an English teacher before turning his efforts fully to writing. In 1996, his interest in code-breaking and covert government agencies led him to write his first novel, Digital Fortress, which quickly became a number one bestselling eBook. Set within the clandestine National Security Agency, the novel explores the fine line between civilian privacy and national security. Dan Brown’s follow-up techno-thriller, Deception Point, centred on similar issues of morality in politics, national security, and classified technology.

                  The son of a Presidential Award winning math professor and of a professional sacred musician, Dan grew up surrounded by the paradoxical philosophies of science and religion. These complementary perspectives served as inspiration for his acclaimed novel Angels & Demons – a science vs. religion thriller set within a Swiss physics lab and Vatican City.

                  Dan Brown’s wife Blythe – an art historian and painter – collaborates on his research and accompanies him on his frequent research trips, including to Paris, where they spent time in the Louvre for his thriller, The Da Vinci Code.

                  The Da Vinci Code has sold some 70 million copies worldwide. Both The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons have been adapted for film by Columbia Pictures.

                  His fifth novel, The Lost Symbol, featuring Robert Langdon, was released in September 2009.
