Famed Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon answers an unexpected summons to appear at the U.S. Capitol Building. His plans are interrupted when a disturbing object—artfully encoded with five symbols—is discovered in the building. Langdon recognizes in the find an ancient invitation into a lost world of esoteric, potentially dangerous wisdom.

When his mentor Peter Solomon—a long-standing Mason and beloved philanthropist—is kidnapped, Langdon realizes that the only way to save Solomon is to accept the mystical invitation and plunge headlong into a clandestine world of Masonic secrets, hidden history, and one inconceivable truth . . . all under the watchful eye of Dan Brown's most terrifying villain to date. Set within the hidden chambers, tunnels, and temples of Washington, D.C., The Lost Symbol is an intelligent, lightning-paced story with surprises at every turn—one of Brown's most riveting novels.


  • Great, then ugh.

    This book was wonderful almost all the way to egg end, but then... It happened. I found myself in a righteous and religious confused lack of fact fest. It seemed that he was shoving ideas in my head. He didn’t have to do this. The Lost Symbol was ruined for me. His worst book by far.
  • Great Read

    This is definitely a great read informational as expect from Dan Brown novels. His suspense keeps you on your toes and the knowledge gain from reading is always a welcomed addition.

  • My favorite of the series!

    By wblakewright
    Dan Brown may reuse the plot and storyline in each novel. But it's an exciting storyline! And if you're like me, then you appreciate the amount of research and information presented in each page of his work. I realize they're not historically accountable, but they contribute to an important discussion that I think are invaluable today!

    Another great read with a twisting plot that is suspenseful I love books that I can't just skim through. I have to pay attention.
