THE LOST SYMBOL DAN BROWN The Lost Symbol opens with Robert Langdon being called to Washington DC at short notice to deliver a speech. He believes that the request has come from his old friend Peter Solomon, head of the Smithsonian Institution and also a high-ranking Freemason. He arrives only to find the severed right hand of his friend grotesquely, but significantly, placed in the Capitol rotunda. The Lost Symbol includes all the elements that so engrossed readers in The Da Vinci Code, including an intricate and puzzling plot moving at a fast pace. The central character, symbologist Robert Langdon, is back, risking his life to solve a dangerous mystery and Dan Brown fans won't be disappointed by his latest bestseller.
