Hold on to your book carts!
The Knopf Doubleday Group just announced that the long-awaited follow-up to Dan Brown’s mega-hit, The Da Vinci Code, is scheduled to drop this September. The book, titled THE LOST SYMBOL, also features protagonist Robert Langdon. Brown’s editor, Jason Kaufman, says of the novel:
“Nothing ever is as it first appears in a Dan Brown novel. This book’s narrative takes place in a twelve-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.”
Brown himself said the novel is a culmination of 5 years of research. The print-run is the largest in Random House, Inc. history: 5 million! Be prepared for plenty of questions and requests. We at Random House Library Marketing are very excited about this tremendous news! If you put your ear very close to the computer you can hear us cheering all the way in our New York offices.
