The Lost Symbol, Dan Brown’s follow-up to The Da Vinci Code, is available for pre-order on Amazon and will be released on September 15. It’s already been optioned into a movie for Ron Howard and Tom Hanks, assuming it has a sliver of the same success that The D-Code did. That book spent 24,498 weeks on the NY Times bestseller list and made brown something close to $75 million.
Brown has spent the past few years researching and writing the follow-up in and around Washington, D.C. Speculation is rampant that the new novel will not only be equal parts horrible and unputdownable, but also have something to do with the Free Masons that built America’s capitol city.
You can also rest assured that the ailing book publishing business is anticipating this release will not only save the industry but also rescue the unicorns from the endangered species list.
